I financed both sport bikes, but had them both paid off within a year of the purchase. I do this just to keep cash reserves in the bank.

Financed both bikes. Being only 2 years out of college and living without a roommate for one of those years didn't allow much to be put away but I wanted to learn to ride. It sucks to make payments, but I'm happy I have my 2 wheels.
