I've noticed lately that I can get a 600 super sport about 4-5 years old for around $5k. I've always wanted one but never had one. I'd always chicken out and get the "cheaper" bike like an SV650, Ninja 650R, 'cause a new one was several thousand less than a Gixxer or ZX6R(I wasn't open to buying a used bike before). At age 38, I figure it's time to FINALLY get one. The 650R would still be my main bike-the SS would be a second one. But my rule is-if I can't pay it off in a year, then I don't want it. But 5k to pay off in a year is going to make $$$ really tight. I could use some of that money to do some things I've never accomplished on a motorcycle. Like an Ironbutt SS1000, 2,000+ mile road trip, weekend road trips to places I haven't been to on a bike... And I could get a new helmet, saddlebags, and rain suit to replace those aging items. What would you do?
