Ok its time to upgrade just wanted to get some thoughts on what other people would go for if they were in my shoes. I have the oportunity to pick up a k7 gsxr 1000 from a mate at work who is desperate for cash as he is in a bit of debt the bike has 6000ks on the clock, is in excellent condition, jardine gp1 exhaust but has no rear seat cowling rego expires in sept he wants $12,000 but i think i could easily get him down to $11,000 or maybe $10,000. Other mate at work has a k6 gsxr 1000 with 21,000 ks on the clock is in good condition has pc III and yoshi exhaust, rear seat cowling but rego has expired he has to sell it quick and a shop has offered him $8,500 which he is going to accept. But i could grab it for the same price. Third mate at work just lost his licence for drink driving and has an almost new 08 model r6 completely stock for about $14,000 im not sure how many ks he's done but it wouldn't be more than 4000. I am upgrading from my aprilia rs125 which i have been riding for the past 4 years and have ridden dirt bikes when i was younger. Before anyone starts the flammings for wanting to go from a 125 to perhaps a 1000 i do plan on doing some advanced rider training and i have a reasonably sensible head on my shoulders i know its a huge jump in power and that is why i am also leaning towards the k7 gsxr 1000 because of the a,b,c mode on it i am thinking i should be able to put it in c mode untill i get confident enough with the bike to use it properly. whichever bike i get i plan on using it for weekends and the occasional track day i will not be commuting at all but do plan on taking the wife as pillion occassionally. I am also interested in the k6/k7 gsxr 750 but it doesn't seem worth it when i can get a 1000 for pretty much the same price or even cheaper.
