moving to San Francisco from Miami... yelp!?

Hi everyone.. I mentioned this in my intro thread, but basically I was wondering what would be a good shop to buy a used bike from. Looking for a 600. I read great things about MotoJava.com and they seem to get new bikes just about every week. The move takes place the 1st week of July, and I can't friggin wait.

Also, I won't know anyone in San Francisco / Bay Area, so if anyone lives out there wants to be a buddy I would greatly appreciate it. Currently seeking work out there also. Been working for a couple companies on some contract work, cross country, but nothing is a sure shot yet. Would love any help I can get.

Anyhow. Right now I'm eye-balling the Honda 599 anything after '04 or a Gixxer 600 again, anything after '04

Thanks!!

Chris

I would check locally for private sellers... you'll get a better deal... check craigslist.com

Thanks ebbs,

I'll start checking out craigslist, but I get so deterred on that website because of the tons of scams and what not... although, If I can't ride it, see the title in person, and verify everything is kosher, I suppose I wouldn't be buying the bike anyhow... so I'll give it a look.

Thanks for the advice.... I'm off to bed, see y'all in the morning

Thanks ebbs, and gas!

I truly cannot wait. If any of you have ever been out there to wine country, you'll know these amazing roads I'm talking about. stunning views (where you tumble down the mountainside endlessly if you stare too long at them), amazing curves... simply breathtaking.

Gas Man: Sorry about the job request spam... though I have a couple offers, you can never have too many options, and its pretty scary moving from one of the country to another. I appreciate everything!
