Hi, guys!

Sorry to have had such radio silence. It's busy season at work right now and I just got around to checking out the thread again. Thanks for all of your replies, welcomes, and advice!

In general, I'm open to buying used as well, but probably not from a private seller. I'd like to finance, and with the new bikes the financing rates are much better than that of used from the research I've done but if you have found otherwise, please share...I'm keeping an open mind. I just don't have that many thousands of dollars to plunk down with a private seller at once and would rather have that money for an emergency fund, etc. Plus, I like being able to build my credit even more with good payments. I hope that makes sense.

Do you guys think that I'll have more luck right before Dec 31 instead of now, since it's quarter end and year end? Thanks again!

Unless there is something the newest model has the others don't, considering a gentle used bike is a great option. IF the owner isn't crazy about the asking price.

Did found lane splitting out there great to survive the rush hour traffic and really enjoyed the Pacific Cafe, the fresh fish was fantastic.

OH,, do a track day or ten.
I love lane splitting and it's so sad that it's not legal anywhere else...! Getting onto the track is on my list of things to do for sure!

You have a conundrum, 1) you can look to a dealer that's closet to you (and that's if you are not expecting to move anytime real soon); 2) or you can look for best price for X-miles from where you live.

Not sure.where specifically you are, but you might look east, say100-miles. That would easily put you in Sacramento, Yuba City, Marysville, Roseville, Redding, Fresno, Visalia, etc. My 1st instinct would be to go close to I-5 cities, away from cities on the coast, say Santa Cruz or Monterey, but perhaps a smaller town like Salinas or Paso Robles.

Now, that's not to say don't check with coastal dealers, I would think the closer you are to The City, the more you will pay. Especially if you can find a dealer you has been sitting on a '15 that just has not been able to move.

The closer to Spring/summer the more you will pay, so if you can afford to pull the trigger now, go for it. Also, go to the dealer at the end of the Quarterly months (Mar., Jun., Sep., Dec.). Choose a day where the weather is not warm and sunny. And finally, take a male friend who knows a thing or two about bikes, the sales person will initially be inclined to speak to him and not you, but have your friend redirect the salesperson to you. This is not a time to be righteous (that comes when you drive away with a fabulous deal in hand). You are there simply to get the best price possible.

Don't be afraid to walk away. Look at it this way, you are going to have lunch/dinner in a town you normally wouldn't dine at. That's the worst thing that will happen. Leaven your name and number. Remember there are various components that go into the price you pay. A good example is my dealer does not charge 'set up fees', that alone can save a couple hundred dollars. My favourite question that I ask before I walk out the door (w/o a bike) is, "... Have you sold too many bikes this month; or can you afford to sell another...?"

Now, the thing you are buying if you buy from the closest dealer is ease of service, should you have a mechanical issue. Say you live in Milpitas, and have to go to San José... Not a big deal. Usually, the selling dealer will give you a price break on retail items (sometimes you have to ask for it/inform the Parts guy you bought your bike there).

So, you see there's not one answer that fits all occasions/people.
Thank you! This is great advice. I'm going to reach out to some dealers out in the central valley.

Are you hell bent on a ZX-6R, though? It's a cool bike, but there are so many cool bikes available these days that, if you're in the enviable position of being able to buy a new one, you owe it to yourself to try out a bunch of different ones. For instance, something like a Ducati Monster, or Yamaha FZ-09 would probably be more appropriate for road use, even if they're aren't quite as fast around a racetrack.
I've been to MotoGP and WSBK a few times and have sat on so many....I keep coming back to the ZX6R for fit and geometry for me. At the end of the day, I'm still a full fairing sport girl. No naked sports for the time being though I do appreciate the beauty of the Monster! . The Suzuki GSXers fit really well, too, but I can't get past their fairing designs...So dated! I'm sure all of you would agree here that team green and a Ninja looks and sounds a lot better, no?

I would love to check this out if anyone can point me in the right direction or if someone remembers where this was! Thanks!

I love the grey carbon/matte grey but I'm open...Would prefer to buy new (see above on why) unless it's used and I can finance.

Yes - I took the MSF class in 2013 and commute on my 500R every day. I'm ATGATT. I'm pretty lucky...I have one of the most beautiful commutes! I go across the Golden Gate Bridge twice a day and get some nice twists, banks, and grades on my commute in Sausalito. It was so clear the other day, I could see the Farallon Islands clear as day!

If you want to save more money I suggest buying a lightly used one. Plenty of '13-'15 ones in good shape for sale anywhere in the $7000-$9500 range if you buy from private individuals. There are even a few for sale on here I think, although you'd likely have to ship it (still cheaper even with shipping). Dealers are expensive, but to each their own.
Thank you! How often do you still ride your 500R? Please see above on private individuals and my desire to buy used financed or new from dealership.

OP,

I was stationed on the USS Enterprise while it was home ported in Alameda, and a couple of years later got stationed at NAS Alameda. Spent a few years in the Bay Area in the mid 80's.

Had a chance to ride across the golden gate bridge a few times, really liked riding around Muir woods, and down to Stinson beach. Great stuff.

I understand on the financing. In that case, you might be able to find a good deal on a leftover new bike as mentioned before. Not sure how your dealers price bikes there, but around here I find dealers to be way overpriced on used bikes, to the point that you might as well add another 1000-2000 and can get a new one. And regarding end of year sales, that just depends on the dealers. Some will have some really good deals at the end of December, like my local Ducati dealer usually does, but other dealers I've seen don't seem to care that it's end of quarter or end of month. They don't get quite the same incentives as car dealers do.

I ride my 500 all the time...sort of. Both my bikes are race bikes, and I take both with me every time when I go to track days are race weekends. I'd say so far since I've had both I've spent about 60% on the 500 and 40% on the zx6r.

If or when you do decide to do a track day, I would advise you do the first couple at least with the 500. You'll learn much quicker and get comfortable with it much quicker that way.

You can finance a used bike from a private seller. I did it with my first bike, which was a 2008 SV650. At the time while living in SF, I did it through the SF Fire Credit Union. Only stipulation I came across was that it couldn't be too old of a bike. But since your looking for the current gen zx6r, it wouldn't apply because there still all considered "new". I would still try for a private seller. You can save soooooo much in the long run! If I could do it over with the '13, I would have waited a year a bought it used. There are so many seasonal riders that pick up a bike on a wim and figure it's not for them.

I agree on the 500R and the track. Great idea!

I'm glad to hear that you still get so much use out of it. Unfortunately, I don't think I'll track it nearly as much as you...I have yet to even have my first day. I'm wondering what the % is for those that do still have a CBR 500 variation and a larger displacement bike.

I hope you're having a great weekend!

Can't directly answer the 500 part since I don't have one.
But it will take a bit on most tracks for your skills to require something bigger, the smaller bike will be fantastic in the corners..

Can't encourage you strongly enough, do some track days.

Yes, especially a bike that I am already very familiar with (500R). I can then hone in on the skills and form, feel, rather than the bike itself.

I've been dreaming of a custom Dainese suit for the last year for a track day in my near future.

Do you really need a custom suit.. Get to a shop and try on several companies gear,, note sizes that fit and what is off.

Reason being now is the time people are getting out of riding, upgrading or just clearing out there closets. Don't forget eBay.
Once you know your size with patience you can pay 25 cents on the dollar for a suit.
If you were a very tall person things get dicey quick but the euro sizing favors smaller people.

Consider Bates and Vanson for custom suit's if you can't get something that works.
Main point being, money saved on the suits can pay for track days.

Check sites like STT and Wera Forums for used gear. Some worn once, or not at all.

^^ I like this advice.

Good quality riding gear will last for many years, if it is not put to the test. My winter jacket is a textile Tekniks, I bought in 2001. I know I have put nearly 100,000 miles on motorcycles since I bought that particular jacket.

Racing quality gear will go even longer -- the hides are so thick that it takes negligence to cause one serious harm.

Second hand on stuff like that, which fits properly? 30 seconds after you buy any article of clothing, it's used. If you want to let someone else pay for the privilege of trying it on before you, you will indeed come out money ahead.

It's much harder to scr3w up riding gear, than it is to do the same to the bike.....

This is a good point. I actually did the same with my first bike too. It's just not quite as quick as it is doing it at a dealer because they take care of everything for you. But it's really not that hard. I found the bike I wanted, and I went and got a loan through a credit union (but any bank should work too). They gave me a check and I gave the check to the guy I bought my bike from. Out of the 5 bikes I've owned so far, I've only bought 1 brand new, and looking back at it, that was a terrible idea. Thing about bikes is they depreciate quite fast (especially japanese sport bikes) and most people want to make them better with various aftermarket parts, which costs a lot of money. You can find lightly used bikes with some or most of the aftermarket parts you'd put on anyway for WAY less money. In fact, the other day I just added up the cost of all my aftermarket parts on my '09 ZX6R, assuming I'd have to buy them brand new. Came up to somewhere around $8500!! I paid $4k for all that with the bike and it only had 3200 miles! Well worth the 4-hour drive each way to pick it up

That depends on each person and where they're at in their riding "career", and the type of riding they do. A lot of people when they start riding, especially on sport bikes, tend to feel they need more and more power. I did the same. Started on a 600, then shortly after upgraded to a Ducati 1198. After less than a year I realized how terrible of a bike it is for city riding and commuting, although an amazing track bike. I will say that now if I was still riding on the street, and both my bikes would be street legal, it would probably be 95% 500 and 5% zx6r. I would only ride the zx6r occasionally on weekends, but the 500 would make such a much better commuter and overall easy to ride in the city. Much more comfortable too, and I just don't feel the need to have 100+ hp on a street bike. All it does is get me in trouble with the local PD because if I have all that power, I can't just NOT use it

Btw, feel free to join the cbr500riders.com forum too if you haven't already. It's nowhere near as cool as this one though, or as helpful, but every now and then there are some good discussions. Lots more beginners there though, so it gets a bit old when every other week someone asks the same question about how to adjust the chain or how to lower their bike lol.

Good point here. Now is the season of sales!! A few years ago I bought my brand new Alpinestars suit on clearance sale that was reduced from $1400 to $750! Riders Discount I think has some crazy deals going right now posted on the WERA forum. I've seen some suits that range from 900-1500 normally on sale for 400-700! Unfortunately I already have a long list of other shit I need for next year, which isn't cheap, so the suit will have to wait another year. Mine's still ok, it's just the leather is getting kinda stiff and dry. Hoping to get one more season out of it. It's got 5 seasons on so far and 2 crashes.

Also, I get the impression that @Indy is a bigger addict than me! I typically suggest track days to everyone that rides sport bikes, but Indy does it multiple times to each person! lol...that's called obsession my friend! Just like they say about the track...get rid of your ego, because just when you think you're fast, there's always someone faster, I suppose it's true in this case too....just when you think you have an addiction, there's always someone with an even bigger addiction!

So let's say that the dealership has bottomed out the price. The freight (which you kindly left out) is actually something that costs about as much as they charge. So what's left after bottoming out the price? A little of the setup. Setup at my last dealer was $395. The shop charges the sales department about 1.5 hours to uncrate and then setup the bike. At the tune of $125 an hour that's $200. We're now left with $195. Of which the sales guy (at least in my last dealership) gets a minimum commission of $100. Leaving the $95 profit.... ON A $12k BIKE!

This is where I always say this:

If not for making a little profit on the motorcycle.... there won't be dealerships for you to purchase said motorcycle. You'd be surprised how many bikes are sold for literally $100 profit after rebates and haggling. Sometimes that's even less... especially when it's an outgoing model year and they have been paying flooring costs for over a year. (Insurance, interest ---> the dealer finances the bikes from the factory).

Moral of the story... let them make a fair profit. It's not a bad thing to be in business to make money. And again... see that part about not having a place where you could actually get a new bike.

My dad was on the Kitty Hawk. From what I hear... the Enterprise and the Kitty hawk have each others' engines. I've seen the engine room on the KH and it had the Enterprises engine They were built at the same time and they accidentally swapped the engines (or just the plaque stamped into each).

Well that sucks for you guys! Is it still legal to ride the existing bikes without doing any modification? Or do these laws only impact manufacturer sales? Sort of like the VW diesel debacle we had around here.
