Hey everyone, I just sold my CBR600RR on cycletrader.com and I was very sad to see it go. I had to sell it because I owed my parents some money and they needed me to pay off my debt so off went the bike.

SO now, I have paid my parents off and I am looking around for a cheaper but nice bike. I have around 4000-4500 dollars to spend. I am interested in a VTR1000 or something like that. I also like the F4 and other 600s.

Does anyone know of where one of these VTRs could be found in good condition for that price?? Is that a reasonable price for this bike?? Just trying to get some feedback to go on. Thanks, Chris

I really, really miss my bike SO much. I would love to get another 600RR but I hate the idea of being in debt to anyone again.

I know that it is probably not the best time to buy but I really miss riding and it sucks when the weather is great and I have to drive.

That's one of the reasons I am asking everyone for some advice as in prices and such.

I am really leaning toward a VTR1000 cause it is more cruiser like and the type of rider who has one would have been responsible and taken care of the bike.

I found one in NC that is 4500 and is a 98 though. How many miles do you think is too many for a bike. I know its a Honda but will it start to have trouble at a certian amount of miles or will it keep going like Honda cars.

also, I LOVED my Honda and don't think I would switch to a Har...... I can't even say it. :twisted:

Keep your eyes open, i've seen well used 600RR's for around $4500-5500. Check out the mid-90's Suzuki SRAD's in 600&750's or Kawasaki ZX600,750 or even 900's . Great bikes. Even the early Honda F3's with alittle suspension work can be made to handle well. You shouldn't have a problem locating a decent bike for around $5K

If you work, put that money down on an 05 model and just make payements. Yeah, you're kind of in debt but it's a brand new bike you're making payments on to own. You won't regret it, the bike is awesome. I had a 94 F2 and just got the new 05 about 2 months ago.

Just my .02

blucbr600 is dead on. You should keep that as your life motto.

I bet if you watch the classifieds you can come up with a nice bike. I see great bikes in that price range all the time. We have this thing called Valley Trader and it’s like an ebay in print for your area. I bet you have one too just look for it at the market where you shop.
