So last week, I randomly decided to put my WR250X up for sale. Being the middle of winter, and a relatively unknown bike at a not cheap price, I figured I'd be sitting on it for a while. There was also an '04 SV650 naked with GSXR front end and Elka rear shock, Leo Vince exhaust, etc, for sale. I made plans to go see the bike Saturday (12/31), and then on Friday I went to get the money. As soon as I got back home from the bank, the SV was sold.
In a fit of rage, I decided to go look at a dirt bike. I had had my eye on a couple, but wasn't really planning on buying anything. Since I had the money, though, I figured why not check one out? Since I had nothing to do as I was planning on buying the SV, I decided to just go check out a YZ426f for sale on the local forum that was about 15 min away from me. I threw the trailer on the Miata and went to check it out with my roommate. Long story short:
On the WR front, I was getting a crazy amount of responses. Tons of people wanted trades and people were basically lining up for it. One guy wanted to see it Sunday (1/1) and was coming from 2.5 hours away, so I held on to it for him. He checked it out Sunday morning and bought it. That left me with no street bike, aka no way to get to work. I didn't think the bike would sell that fast. Luckily I had already been CL hunting for a few weeks and had some good leads.
Today (1/2) I went to check out a 2007 GSXR750 with only 2500 miles. What the ad neglected to say was how much damage was on the right fairing and that it hadn't been registered since 2011.
After wasting my morning on the GSXR750, I called about a nice looking FZ1. 12k miles, never dropped, and in a cool color. After a bit of haggling:
I'll post my impressions later.
