Might sell the bike today. Thoughts?

Ok so I put my bike on craigslist just to see what offers I got. some guy is offering me 5k today.


I don't really wanna sell it cause I really like the bike and all the mods that have been done.
At the same time with that 5k I could start up my small business and hopefully get an 08 r6 when it warms up soon. Only thing there is, I'd have to redo all the mods.

I plan to go track only eventually and get my novice race license. So it comes down to keep my 07 and track it with 30k miles or sell it and wait for another bike with no guarantee on how long that'll be.
This would be the first time since I was 9 that I wouldn't have a bike.

If you were in my shoes what would you do?
Thanks

You could sell it, and buy a race ready R6 with everything already done to it.

Ive seen bikes with full suspension upgrades go for 3500.... unless your bike already has that, i think its a better deal. Wish i had done it before i dented my tank

Re: Might sell the bike today. Thoughts?

I'd sell just because of the mileage. I know these bikes can go 100k miles but when mine and had 32k and I had the chance to sell it I did. I have no regrets at all. Also it's nice to get something new.
