Thanks

1992 with about 21XXX miles pretty good shape. Starts well, very small oil drip ( dime size overnight) asking 1500 but im looking for about 1250. I cant afford the CBR's in my area because i know people with them and i like them but i like the look of this bike and its my first so im trying to learn.

to TWF.
It is comparable to other bikes in the year. The price doesn't sound to bad either.

the r6 is a hot bike. i plan on that being my next bike if i dont get the zx-6r. just be safe when you ride since this is your first.

Im meeting the guy today to look at it. I have MSF class in two weeks but i need a helmet and the gear and ***** and thought to get a bike and practice a little and get a helmet. I plan on spending a good amount of money on my gear. I talked to a guy who spent over a grand on all his stuff and he survived a head on collision with a car and he didnt have a scratch on him. (just a broken shoulder and a shattered femer) Thanks guys and ill tell u how it goes

I would consider a broken shoulder and a shattered femur a little more than a scratch.

No see he didnt have a scratch on him because of all the kevlar and whatever he said his helmet had a giant flat spot from scrapping on the ground. So i literally mean not a scratch on him

Better than rash and head trauma on top of the broken bones.

I think that is an excellent choice for a beginner bike.

VIDEO ---- OK so i looked at it today, took a picture, along with a video. From only hearing cars running it sound like it idles pretty rough. But i dont know ive only heard a 05 cbr 600rr run and alot has changed. So here is the video please tell me if there seems to be a problem.
