Question for you all; I have a problem sorta, to sell my ‘ol faithful roundabout jumping ZZR two fidy or keep it as a commuter. My other ride for those unknowing is a Daytona 675. Now my new living arrangements as of next week involve 900km / week of commuting in a straight line = tyre killers and kay counters. Currently I’m doing 100km / week in commuting plus the odd run around, and to date I’ve done 14,000km on the Daytona in under 4 months. If I sell the ZZR I’m going to fetch about $2-3k at best. That then means in commuting alone, I’m going to rack up near 20,000km’s on the Daytona, in a straight line on the calder highway, before I go to Europe. This isn’t including visiting friends and twisty rides. I’ll have to put commuter tyres on, and possibly learn how to change tyres to put fun tyres on for the weekend. Service costs are something like $400-500 including parts plus more frequent oil and filter changes. In saying that I’ll have a slightly more fun commute, and probably more likely to get nailed for speeding. Also if I’m running late for work I’ll be able to correct that easier. If I keep the ZZR, I’ll be up for oil and filters ever month, the tyres will live and are cheap, but I’ll be paying near $700-800 in rego and insurance (which are both now due), have a boring as bat shit commute, and brakes I’m not used to anymore. I’ll clock up a heap of km’s on the ZZR which I don’t care about, and save those kilometers from going on the Daytona’s clock. The Daytona itself I’m not sure what I want to do with in the long run. If I get a decent long term job in Europe and I intend to stay, I’m debating weather to ship the bike or sell it. Problem is I’m spending a bit of money on cosmetic stuff that doesn’t count when it comes to selling, so basically its money lost if I choose to sell it, if I choose to keep it, well yeah. It’s not so much the actual kilometers reading on the clock I’m worried about, its more knowing I have a tiring engine with valuable twisty life span wasted on highways... Comfort, I’m easy on both. I’m defiantly more at ease on the Daytona knowing I have those sensational brakes at my disposal and power if needed and its general handling if I need to get out of trouble. No problems with been on a sports bike that long etc etc. Ideally, I write both off just before going to Europe, put the money aside and buy a newy later on. But that’s dodgy, and I wouldn’t go doing that (if I don’t write it off on the GOR before then). I posed the same question on facebook and got some very mixed results. Your thoughts kiddies? Thanks all for your input. --brownyy Slightly depressing - think of Europe, think of Europe, saving money, saving money, grrrrr.
