New R1 will run you about 12.5-13k... They are also all imported... The good thing about Okinawa is that you can ride all year round for the most part so you will get to ride a lot. You can find deals on bikes that are around 3 or more years old, but your going to pay for new. There are a couple of used 05 R1's here going for 10k, but for that price your better off getting the new R6. If you just want to ride then I'm sure you will find something to ride for less $.
