Just don't give an honest opinion on the reality TV Show he's trying to put together and you're good to go.

So my gf mentioned an idea. Her insurance on the car is almost up and she wants to just ride the bike for the summer. We moved about 1.5km away from our work and it's not feasible having two cars. Ill post up a thread maybe tomorrow, but Pretty much she wants to sell/trade her '02 cavalier z24 to buy me a good beginner bike for this summer. She's owned it for the last ~10 years and has taken pretty good care of it. Comes with snows and is a tank all around.

Just to put the bug in ppl's ears. If anyone has a cheap good running bike (non cruiser) let me know!

She sure is a keeper. Turns out she bought the car new in '02 an is the original owner. Guess I'm gonna have to wash and wax it before work tomorrow so i can make. Fs ad. I guess if it outright sold i could put a downpayment on a bike. Meh. I love the grom but for $3200 (plus 700 in "documentation fee's") you can get way more bike for less.


Mmmm... 1988 Suzuki GSXR 750 Slingshot but that is A LOT of bike for a beginner

That is a SWEET bike, my old co worker would have loved it. He's been riding gsxrs since there were gsxrs, as he would always put it.

He used to have the '86 limited edition with dry clutch back in the day

you can always pick up an 08 ninja 250 for that price. easier for beginners, and won't come with the hassle of maintaining a 26 year old bike.

edit: or dish out an extra grand for this and you'll be a god amongst us feeble peasants
