Sell, it is just a motorcycle.

I have had atleast 50 of them and all they are is a machine for me to enjoy, then I replace it with another.

I mean if you don't care about the money you lose by having it sit around and the maintenance needs it will require to bring it back out in 5 years or whenever and you have tons of room for it to just sit around where you will or won't see it regularly, then by all means let it sit and you can ponder the choice you make by keeping it and not using it.

Stupid people say stupid things on the internet, so be wary of who those people are. If you solicit advice on the internet, just keep in mind 99% of what you'll receive is not based on fact or science-and likely atleast 95% of it is based on bullshit and bravado regurgitated from some other schlub who also did not experience any of what they claim and are also full of shit. If you don't like my bluntness- too bad. I am not here to please you, so move along, your approval is not desired nor is it needed. So before opening your pie hole and adding more stupidity, perhaps sit back, listen, absorb and learn something. You know that saying, it is better to remain silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt!

some very different opinions.

exactly what i needed to hear since my rational brain and my weeping heart reason just so divided as you guys.

i don't wanna track this one. i'd wanna track/street ride the new one since i WANTED the shorter (handlebar-seat), USD forks and radial mount calipers and FI for quick access tuning.


Buddy isn't interested as he's also looking for something fuel injected.

I too thought, if i was to sell it i would wanna have it out of my sight. So i won't cry when seeing it go by.

I'd keep it to keep miles off the other bike and then they'll both last longer together. Convert if for track use and save the other one strictly for the street. I had 2 bikes, especially if one is down for repairs, you're not rushed to get it done because you have a back up.

Is that 2,600 dollars with beavers and the queen on them, or green dollars?

Looks like the difference isn't much anyway: $2,600.00 = $2,372.26 USD

I got someone driving 5hrs one way to buy my bike.

He's seen all the dents and rashes, added him to my fb account so he can see the bike's history and see the damage it had right after each lowside.

He had 2 other bikes before maxim 650 and 550... just wants something sportier. For me the perfect buyer who will appreciate it and make it look all pretty again (he works in a car body shop) and lives far away so I won't hate the rider on it should i ever see this bike in yellow on our streets.

It will have a loving new home LOL

Actually I get to store it for him in our garage until the weather is decent enough for him to pick it up to ride it home.

I'm married to a German, so I speak with authority on this subject.

Look, bikes are the ultimate lovers, and mistresses (or whatever the male version of that is... Boy toy ?). Never in any relationship will you wrap your legs around something and derive so much guilt-less pleasure without even raising an eyebrow of your husband,wife, girl or boy friend. (I am enjoying the visualization of a sexy German biker girl, so forgive me!)

Little do they know how much these bikes feed our souls. Often bikes hold such dear memories for us, and when we are forced to let them go it tears a part of us away. I think it sad to say I have more memories of my first bike than of all my girl friends during that time. That may be because of a bikes ability to trip endorphins and adrenaline is better (and longer) than any sex kitten or puppy boy could. (I'm trying here to equate things for you incase your not also into sex kittens)

I have never sold a bike that i enjoyed and weeks or years later agreed I did the correct thing.

So here are some things to consider.......

If you can at all keep this bike do it!

If you can make the room to store it, do it!

If you sell it, write in the contract you will have first right of refusal on any resale of the bike. I am still tracking three of my last bikes I sold, calling every year or so, waiting for the current owner to get tired of my old 94 carbie monster.....

You never realize how much you miss something until it is gone.

With what I read, you will regret not disassembling, cleaning, injecting oil into the tank and engine and sealing it up for storage until you decide to sell or restore it.

But... In the end, it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all.....BUT I prefer to love-em as long as I can.

u can't say that to me 5hrs before closing the deal!

but thanks, very much appreciate your vivid statement!

I have no leverage anymore as to why i'd wanna keep a 2nd bike around since now my fiancee is on a shopping rampage for his next 2011-13 zx10r. In order to not totally go into debt about a 11g purchase he HAS to sell both his street and track 05gixxer 1000s as soon as possible which won't happen for another month or so but meanwhile we're gonna get his zx10 to get a good price before spring.


I see if i can keep in touch with the buyer, he'll probably notice how much i will miss it the minute it's sold to him.

Haha.... Just bat your eyes and say " how much is my happiness worth to you".

A powerless woman is just not thinking hard enough!!!!


In about 4 hours one of my old babies is coming back to get new fork seals. You can't keep them all, but if you offer free repairs they come back to see you every once in a while.

Can I work where you do? Sounds like you're just rolling in the dough.

I think the person coming over to buy your bike will take good care of it. Sounds like someone who knows what he is doing and the bike might have a great life ahead. Good luck on the deal.
