So... Time to upgrade. Has to be a 1000cc sportsbike, so as usual the choice is: 08 R1; Can buy a brand new one for under 15k now (works out at $16200 ride away, may be able to haggle a little bit on that now the 09 models have hit the showrooms) GSXR1000 ; Could almost scrape a new 08 model for 15k, even If I throw a few more $$$'s at them. Otherwise its a low km used one with a few $'s to spare. ZX10; They still want 16k for a new 08 model, but should find an ex-demo or almost new for under 15k. CBR1000; 15k wont get the new model, but should get a nice very low km 07 model. Any recommendations or experience on the above? Will mostly be weekend hooning with a bit of commuting and the occasional trackday thrown in. There seems to be some good deals on the runout 08 models at the moment. The only problem buying new is I'd have to find a few more dollars for a pipe and fender eliminator etc., most used already have them. fwiw I'm pretty tall so if anyones ridden the above and can comment on whether they are cramped or not? I've ridden the ZX10 and hope to get out on the weekend and get on the others as well.
