yeah I need a damper more than anything! I can get the mount for the GPR for free as soon as I call the guy I bought the bike from, I was supposed to get it when I picked up the bike in March but he mis placed it. He can also order me the GPR damper for about $200.

RADEKN It's a great bike , i had 01 which i bought new and sold it a few weeks ago with only 5700 miles , never had a single problem except battery which i replaced , the only thing it needs is a stabilizer because it's famous for a head shake , scotts is one of the best in my opinion.

apfire26 I've had mine a couple weeks and so far I love it. It's got a lot of torque so watch out. If you have a 600 and your comfy on it then you should have no problems with the 929. It's my first bike and I feel that I'm doing well on it.
I can get the front wheel up pretty easy and I also learned rolling burnouts a couple days ago. I'm having a lot fun on the ole 929. Good luck on your purchase.

jeeps84 The 954 is defiantly an improvement on the already great 929. It is a full blown liter bike so be careful if you get it.

Gas Man Moving to Honda as well..

Gas Man Loans... check you bank and local credit unions. Hit up the bigger banks and maybe check with your local dealer...they deal with it alot.

On the 929... I have rode one before and rode 2 different 954s. They are both GREAT bikes. Just awesome. Great power, quick throttle due to the FI. You'll love it!!!

punishercb Cool, I'm gonna check it out when I get back from vacation so I just hope it's still gonna be there. Also, does anybody know of any good agents or banks to get loans from? I don't wanna get raped when I go lookin for one. I'm from Indiana btw.

I'm confident that I will be able to control my right wrist.(and I realize that EVERYBODY says that, but I'm more of a cruiser than a adrenaline freak) So I'd appreciate it if anybody can give me their two cents.

Thanks
My Friend has one and it is nice I didnt ride it but he says it is the smoothest Sportbike he has owned even over his Kat 750. I say go for it!
