GT for a GSXR...

Hey guys I just wanted to let the site know that I might be hanging up the keys to my GT for a key to a 2003 Suzuki GSXR 600, possibly a 1000...Either way I am kinda sad but at the same time I know it will benefit me in the long run...I would like to know what you guys think about this...Look at my profile and see what mods I have... I was wondering how much I should be asking for in addition to someone taking over my payments...I'd appreciate any input...

Yah, or a hailstorm...I'm sure your insurance and taxes will be ungodly, especially if you get the bigger bike.

yep. If you're looking for cheaper transportation, get a clunker, don't spend money on a bike. Bikes are awesome, but using one as a daily driver gets old REAL fast.

Plus, it's the hidden costs that kill you, like the insurance and taxs that Amy mentioned.

buying an used bike is an option.

you can buy a decent bike at $3,500 at the cheapest.
i'm also doing some research on used bikes.. and they seem to be around $3,500 - whatever.

Unless you have a 2nd car, i suggest that you don't do it.

ok the insurance for bikes is killer, that is what will kill you.

taxes, umm lemmie think, no my registration on my 2002 750 is 44 every year just like any other bike, cars are far more.

if ya do get the sportbike, log onto www.tsba.org for texas sportbike clubs

dude if ya get a 600, get the 2004, upside down forks, braced swingarm, radial brakes, and a 600 can be just as fast as the 100 in corners, actually faster, because you are not spinning all over the place, ohh yeahh 1 other little minor thing, can you say 15,000 rpm without having your engine fall apart
