This morning I got a serious offer from a guy looking for a 998 Matrix.
I love this bike but not the color.
I only bought it because of the deal.

I can sale it and almost brake even. :skep:
He is willing to give the price I paid for the bike new, if I throw in all the extra stuff
Pipes, carbon fiber stuff, street/track extra body and tank.

That would put me just under $2000 in the hole after riding it for over 3k. :skep:

The big decision is I really want the 05 GSXR 1k.
I cant afford both. :sob:

$2,000 in the hole after only 3,000 miles is too much, IMO.

BUT, if you're not happy with the bike, than it's a moot point. I took a big hit trading my 99 auto vette for an 01 stick. However, I was much happier after I did it.

Its not that I'm unhappy with the bike.
I just really want the new gsxxer in black.

I sent him a counter offer of the same deal and I keep the street/track body.
Good for a bout $700 to $1k+ on ebay if I don't buy a used Duc.

Don't EVER sell a Duc unless you have another in the garage. Please tell me you aren't thinking of selling your only Ducati...only to replace it with a Gixxer...c'mon, you're better than that...

Nope, I have a Monster too!
If it leaves it will only be replaced with a new one.

I guess you know how to hot wire quickly!
I might let you ride the Monster.
She's like a good hoe!
Most anybody can have a turn if I deem them worthy. :lol:

Also, I would like to add.....that both bikes have a nice :drool: factor so I say a big money truck driver like yourself should have both!!

basement n

1. a story of a building that is wholly or partly below ground level

2. the foundation, substructure, or lowest part of a wall or building

Add garage door and its a garage in the Basement/under the house.
Pretty common in the mountains.
