Thanks! Yea, for the price I just couldn't let it slide by. He dropped it another couple hundred off his asking price and tossed in a bunch more spares including a ton of stock parts, extra rotors, and some once used tires as well as a couple totally new ones. Oh and G2G, I did try to give ya a buzz but it went straight to voicemail.

I looked at some 750's. They were simply a lot harder to come by. I was still ok with waiting, but this deal was simply too good to let pass. This is still a very nice upgrade to the 99 R6 I had. Jerry, hope that R6 is as nice to you as it was to me.

They are hard to find, especially with all the goodies already attached. That thing is going to be fast as shit anyway.

Hope to see you out at the track this year.

Congrats Biggy, you are gonna love being on the track with that bike. The huge confidence boost alone (from having such a well setup piece of equipment) is gonna make you faster.

Take your time and get it to feel just like you want. You have all the adjustment you are ever gonna need, so use it!

Congrats again buddy!

Yea he just wanted everything gone which was pretty surprising since I'd list it for sale myself, but guess he didn't want to deal with it.
