Gonna buy a triple...

I've decided the speed triple is the bike for me, now I gotta find one, there are two that I'm looking at right now, both are year 2000 model and both are clean, each one has minor plusses and minusses though and since I'm so wishy-washy "I need YOOOOOUR HELP" (people with little kids will be able to identify that quote) :P

First bike, located waaay the in west virginia, 9k miles and ugly green color, plusses are 9k miles and minusses are ugly green color and located in virginia
ra3x4i

Second bike, located in AZ, 16k miles and coolness black color, plusses are it looks really clean and the guy will meet me in el paso if I buy it, minusses are, 16k miles.
ra40ao

Both bikes are within 200 dollars of each other so price isn't an issue really, I guess what I'm having problems with, is, do I want to own an ugly green bike and drive to west virginia to get it just to have a few less miles on the odometer, or do I should I take the bike with a few more miles that is the color I like and not that far away to get... hmmmm whatchyall thinkboutit?

*shrug* it looks really clean, but looks can be deceiving, I'm really leaning towards black too anyways because the guy offered to meet me halfway, which is more than I can say for the other guy

I really don't care, I just wanted to reach

POSTWHORE STATUS on your thread. You should feel honored. Really. I say get green, have it shipped for a nominal fee. Paint is cake. Or you could chrome that whole out. Frame, tank, everything.
