    Hmm, the only thing that I question is that the all black motor was from 2000. Thank you for posting it.

    Ya, this one has been for sale for awhile now. I wonder if it shows poorly when seen in person?

    I posted that first thread and yeah, it's the same bike.

    I considered it but had some sense talked into me and wound up buying Boris' R6 instead.

    Never went to see it. Judging by the state of the surroundings in the photos, I have a feeling the owner isn't particularly conscientious.....

    You're welcome

    Thank you. It was the right move for sure.

    I've only ridden the thing at one track day and still can't get over how good that suspension feels.

    I need to ride a track/race bike with good suspension just so I can convince myself to either get rid of my dumpster fire, or upgrade it.

    I thought you were definitely on the market for a lightweight machine. Get this. Throw some money for suspension at it and start there.

    No first gens for me. My motorcycle maintenance expertise stops at oil changes and changing brakes.

    Besides, I need to get rid of the Honda first, then I'll have to funds to buy something else.
