Best time to buy now for you Northerners. Still a little while to go for us Southerners.

Deals are to be made at the end of the season and if you wit to long. Better deal can be found but the selection drops dramatically.

Currently ride 1987 GSXR 50, 1996 Ducati M900, 2005 GSXR 1000

7r is one of the first bikes i took some corners on, they are what we reffered to them as " A big fat heavy pig that sticks like glue in the corners"
And no its not a beginners bike.

Great deals over the winter. Like jeeps said not a great selection.

I'll be putting mine away in November probly. That usually when I just can't get it out anymore. Then she'll come out in April.

The only advantage to it getting cooler is my bike is running better sucking up that cool air.
She likes it .
