while we were out today my gf thought it would be a good idea to torture ourselves & stop in at Jordan's to look at bikes. while she was getting moist sitting on a gsxr, I spotted this
2011 blade with a little over 3k miles for £7690, if I wasn't skint I would have had that today without hesitation. anyway I figured bret would appreciate it so I posted it here. enjoy
link to it:
haha don't do that unless your buying it for me!!
I'm way ahead, 2012 bike with 3kmiles, £7495...
....but yea they going dirt cheap, but all my common sense says keep the 600rr since my insurance costs are coming down, they stay as is if i get a blade...but then i tell myself whats wrong with that, amazing bike for an insurance price i can actually pay...all that grunt for my commuting...i have seen 2009 low miles ones for £6k...ive been offered £4k straight for my bike on part exchange so i could get most of £6k straight off just selling my bike private, makes it hurt even more
i saw a video of a guy who had a 250 and went to test ride a 600rr they didnt have the 2012 one so he jumped on a 2012 blade...he nearly shat himself he said it was 'hard to get off the line' probably thinking it was heavy then his video quickly turns to throttle open and '**** **** **** ****' and then 'brake' and then '**** even the brakes are too good' haha its funny as hell hes generally excited while shitting himself at the same time. in my opinion you can enjoy the effect more if you ride a 750 first to bridge the gap, even if just a test ride of one
look at this:
Only 9k miles, garaged, fsh, leo vince gp exhaust, some R&G bits, aftermarket screen, tail tidy, cotton reels etc I like white on bikes, the 2012 white and red is nice, it goes with my gear which has bits of red and white
Finally took the battery out to put on a trickle charger. Was too lazy the past few weeks to take it out

I leave mine while on charge so the HISS 2 keeps ticking away and the bikes ready to go just by unplugging it and closing the solo cowl :) I rode it on the weekend to go get some fuses.
