Okay so it's Friday, talked with the b***hes at the Bank and they mail my $$ Monday. I found a motorcycle I like, within my price range. I checked out Shan-man's 'buying a used motorcycle evaluation guide' looked at the Motorcycle News November 07 market value of bikes. The guy is asking $2,700 for a 99 sv650.... So I figure I can talk him down. After all it's been sitting out on the market for almost a month now. If he wants to get rid of it then he will more then likely come down on the price.
My next step after that is, the MSF. I wont be able to do it till the weekend after next, in the mean time would it be smart or stupid to get used to the bike by riding it within my neighborhood? And of course not without a helment and all the safety gear.
A friend of mine that I go to school with is already wanting to go out riding, so the next step is to figure out where to go. I don't want to go somewhere I am not used to and that is likely to get me introuble as a new rider.
I feel like I did when I was a kid before x-mas, I keep counting days, hours, minutes, and seconds. Sad thing is I haven't even gotten the bike yet.
What do you guys think????
