(I know I keep asking questions about different bikes, sorry, and if you don't want to chat please move along... but it's what a forum's *for*!) Driving along today, spotted a 1991 CBR1000F beside the road, advertised for $2700. It's been dropped at low speed and has scratches and a little cracking on the fairing and one side cover, but it has good tires and brakes and so on. It's done about 80,000 km. I wouldn't do anything on it without a full mechanic's check, but if that came back OK it'd be a decent interim solution to my problems since it's (a) a 1000, (b) water cooled, (c) has a big pillion seat. If it's mechanically OK it's likely to keep going for a long time, and with my current budget I can't afford to worry too much about the cosmetics. Thoughts?
