I currently have an 05 GTO but looking for an r6 just waiting on a good deal so if u are selling a bike let me know. I am ideally looking for something in the early 2000's with 15-30K miles between $2-3k. It will be my first bike so not looking to spend a ton of money at first. I am justtesting the water to see how I will like riding before getting a nice bike. I plan on keeping the gto as well as having the bike. I have had one experience on a bike and it was on the back of an Aprilia 1000 with a female driver lol scariest night of my life i am just glad she knew what she was doing.

Hey,

I'm in phx as well and just bought a 2001 R6 a week ago.
I'm looking forward to this spring!!

I got mine off craigslist. The guy only had 7000 miles on it and obviously didn't know much about riding. It had the original tires on it with a flat spot that looked like a cruiser tire. And the tires were running about 20 psi!!!!!

I would keep an eye on CL. I was looking before and after work, and this bike came up one day, I grabbed it that night. The thing was mint...

I found a 2000 yzf r6 the red and white color scheme with 18712 miles a couple scuffs on theplastics but other then that pretty clean it has a yoshi header and full exhaust the guy posted it for 3200 talked him down to 2900 and am going to try to go for 2800 or 2750 since the tags are due and i have to go thru emmisions... does this sound like a good deal??? i am going to have my friend that goes to mmi look at it this week and tell me what he thinks

btw the gto is good for high 12s on street tires never ran dr's
