Settle, lol. Good one!thanks for the input everyone, I may be moving to the innisfil area before next year and hopefully that will help out my odds, still gonna shop for the insurance and if i cant get it on the r6 i guess ill have to settle for an fz-09.
+1or pick up the R6 and go to the track with it. $0 on insurance. For $5000, you can run a whole season with entry fees, tires, gas, etc. Plus you'll be come a way better rider. They are built for the track. Bring it to its happy place.
I think an even worse feeling would be to have your dream bike sitting in your garage unridable because you can't afford insurance..No worse feeling than looking into your garage and seeing something there you dont love, or that doesn't excite you. If a 600cc is really what you desire, than go for it.
If one is stupid enough to follow the common path without questioning what they are doing, they deserve the wake up call when it's too late.Stay focused on the SS dream. Life's too short. One day you'll wake up a middle-aged man with a bad back, sore knees and a fat mortgage.
Thanks for your condescending comment, I never said buy a bike you can't afford.I think an even worse feeling would be to have your dream bike sitting in your garage unridable because you can't afford insurance..
There are plenty of bikes to "fall in love with" and he's got plenty of years to "fall in love with them"
Quite frankly based on his age the only reason he probably wants to ride the R6 is because its "the most badass bike" amongst his age group.
All I'm saying is he could fall in love with something else given the chance... And come on don't be naive anyone under 25 goes uber wet my pants for R6s..Thanks for your condescending comment, I never said buy a bike you can't afford.
Maybe he wants to ride a r6 because it's a gorgeous bike that puts out amazing sounds and has some decent power. You should stop assuming things based on age.
If I listened to all the retirees on this forum I would still be riding a 125cc and be bored out of my mind
^ agreed lol. I picked up a grom this year and its sparked my love for riding again believe it or not lol. Been on the street for almost 7 years now, started on a ninja 250 and have had almost everything else in between, nakeds, 2 supersports, a couple dual sports/supermotos and even a harley sportster. Now I just have my yz125 a drz400sm and a grom and I'm loving it. I used to feel the exact same as the OP. I NEEDED a cbr600rr when I first got into riding. So I got it. Paid almost $300/month to insure it and sold it within a year. What a dumb move haha. But sometimes we need to experience it for ourselves because we wont listen to anyone else. Lesson learned.As someone who just came from an FZ09, i'm having a complete blast on my 125!
That's the most inspirational and actually applicable thing I've read on GTAM, ever.I just came here to tell you to never give up on your dreams. When there's a will, there's a way.
