I see the benefits. But he wouldn't be able to ride unless he goes to the track then. Now he can ride street and track if he wanted.

I'd sell it and pick up an 08+ street so I could still ride then convert if I got serious about racing. If anything.

It caught my eye like the first girl in a mini skirt in the spring bro. He was rolling up to the track at jennings as I had a close highside moment out of T11. When I was getting off the track he was pulling in towards the paddock and I knew it was his bike immediately. Thru a tinted shield it was the brightest most yamaha blue I've seen. It was hella clean and once it had brand new tires on it, it was irresistible. And Bryan can ride that bike too. Knowing the good times and experiences I've had on mine, I'll never forget or relive possibly. Who knows.

I just have passion and I fall in love easy I guess. $ isn't a big deal in my book compared to priceless experiences, intimacy and established history. Maybe I'm old school guido or just a dreamer with a photographic memory..

Either way, that bike is yours. Once something is mine it's mine unless it fcuks me over too many times... Then I let it sit for years..

:dunno:

And knowing a bit about trying to have a little business, 5k is a fart in the wind if you wanna grow, nevermind get started.

The kid has 2 choices. Be broke and work his dick off and maybe never have a gorgeous gal to spank and beat up. Or have a that hottie in the garage that offers more performance than anything available to him, satisfies his need, and keeps him off the dirt cause that's a $2500 easy out and fix right there...

Re: Might sell the bike today. Thoughts?

Also like girlfriends, sometimes it's just nice to get rid of one to get a new one. I mean, you always want to just keep them all so you can take your pick on any given day, but it's not always possible.

This is exactly what goes through my head everytime i even think of the possibility of selling my bikes. Especially my R6. It was my 1st sportbike, I know the ins and outs of it. All mods are my own and it holds sentimental value. Guess that is weird but I'd have a hard time selling it. I figure if I ever get something else, it has to share garage space with the '06.

Ohhhh fawk that; that's the reason I can't sell my S; she was my first very first bike and I did the entire process myself...She holds more sentimental value than the "R" so she be the first to go (but I'd probably still never sell her either)...My Rytek SLP Monte, forget about it - same deal...I guess I just can't part with my toys.

I'd really be sick (as Ant described) to see someone else on or in my shit...
