So i was driving down the motorway in the beautiful warm weather, sun shining and no clouds in the sky. Ever so often a sports bike passes and jealousy sets in.. Then i asked myself "Why don't i have one?" Im on a decent salary, i have no debt and i've been wanting one for a while. :twisted: I am part of the defence force and soon will be going for my initial employment training so in 2 months time il be on a 40k+ wage, so money isn't a problem, parent's aren't a problem no more, as im living out of home and have no dependants. Come monday morning im going down to paramatta road and buying myself a blue helmet this way i know i WILL get a bike.. The plan i have worked out so far is if i get posted to queensland i can get a 00 R6 through Q-ride. Since im a noob to buying items over 7k i have no experience at all in this field. I've worked out 2 options and saving isn't one I've gotten my ass kicked over the last few years, basic training, losing 40kg of fat and family issues so i don't really give a shit about saving a handful of greens by saving, i deserve it. 1. Loan and get a bike through a private sale 2. Finance or an agreement at a bike store and get a package deal with protective apparel. Can someone please shed some light on which of these options is the better. Anyone who has dealt with this? Interest rates? PAyment periods etc. Any advice at all greatly apreciated. Thanks in advance!
