Fah... I hate bike shopping.

I hate looking for a 'new' used bike...

bunch of misc crud to keep track of, trying to figure mileage vs age vs value etc. The 'cool' stuff being on the edge, just outside (or REALLY outside) the cost range.

Just irked, irritated and tired of caging it.

I know mon, I created this thread more just to vent and amuse myself.

I'm having to...think and evaluate things over again. There have been some helping from another thread. There's esthetics, comfort etc... I mostly commute and run errands, but want to have the option for light touring too.

So, in short I'm having to think and my brain is objecting.

On a ser side Wev..

pretty much everything, but prolly mainly 'standards'.
Some of the SB's look good and are tempting...but not real comfy for
long distance rides. Busa might be 'fun', but outside the budget, etc etc.
Trying to avoid Carb'd bikes, it's one of the things that drove me nuts with my intruder.

thought of another Fz6, or Fz1 etc...

gotta work on my patience and think, and sock money away.




....unless someone jsut wants to give away a B-king. :-)

If you're thinking busa, you're thinking wisely.

C'mon, you know you want it. With the new model out you can find a nice, older one for a reasonable cost.

The little extra cost for a busa would off-set the regret you may feel by going the cheaper route.

Oh, and I love shopping for bikes - even when I don't have the money to buy one and am just looking.

When you actually have the wedge to plop down it's even more exciting!
