What to do what to do.

So I'm kind of stuck in a problem. I've recently purchased an 06 Ninja 250 and have loved riding it around. However for the past several years I have been so into sports cars. Well my current 99 mustang is approaching 97k miles. Before buying the bike I was thinking about selling the current stang and picking up a very clean GT or Mach 1. This idea again popped into my head while driving my GF's new 350z yesterday and remembering just how much I love quick sport cars. However after riding the 250 I can tell already in the near future I am going to want a 600. But that would not be likely for a long time (about a year) if I purchase a new car. Hmm idk guess I just cant lean one way or another at the moment and am looking for suggestions and opinions.

Sell drugs, buy everything you want.

Seriously though, this is not a choice we can make for you.

A car would be your #1 transportation. Going on that you already have a bike so I would get the car then a year or two later sell the 250 and about 2k more buy a good used 600. You can't or won't want to ride that bike in the snow, raining, or cold weather so go with the car.

That's an easy one.
Sell the car towards the gnarliest, ugliest, yet most reliable looking older toyota you can find. It will be what you drive in the rain and snow so choose wisely.

Take the cash you have left over to trade in your bike for a 600 you've been aching for. Stop being a cager and get something you'll LOVE. Aprilias are always nice. Ducati's never look bad. A triumph wouldn't hurt.
Take the plunge man, A red Ferrari 599 GTB doesn't hold a candle to the coolness of even the slowest old sportbike.

That car is gorgeous but it's still just a car. Riding in it probably makes you feel like an utter badass but if it were between driving that for the rest of my like or driving an 80's gsxr....it wouldn't be a hard decision at all for me.

Dude once you get a 600 or bigger the mustangs power will be boring to you. Might as well go completely the other scale and get a liter bike. Then for a car get a TDi jetta or golf and get 50 mpg. Save money on the rainy days and scare the crap out of yourself the rest

You will never get the rush from a sports car you can get with "just a 600". You would have to get to Viper/Vette/Porsche price tags to get that kinda thrill and they are not any more practical than a two wheeler.

Bikes just have a "bang for the buck" quality you can't out do. I love quick cars as well and had a Fast Firebird, couple of Camaro's, and a 350Z. They were all great but if I had to pipck between just 1 toy, it's a bike...
