Not sure if it's the biggest but Holeshot has quite a few.

What are you looking for, my neighbor may have an R6 track bike.

He is Alex, that works at 2nd Gear. There is always something in his garage that he is working on.

Redline Gear but it appears that their website is offline. I haven't talked to them in over a year but I sent them a text to see what's up, I'll let you know if I'm able to get in touch

Gabe said he's probably closing up shop, he has a few jackets and gloves left over. Most of it's up on Craigslist so search for "Taichi" and anything listed by dealer is probably his.

Definitely get in touch with him, great guy

Hey guys, I'm looking to get my 2nd bike and I found this one at Carter Motorsports

2005 HONDA CBR1000RR REPSOL

Does anyone know anything about the history of this bike? I asked the rep and he told me that it doesn't have any liens or extensive damage. It looks nice, just a little dirty in person.

The frame is obviously an 05, but the fairings are definitely from 07 just by inspection. It looks genuine since its kind of a pearl blue. I saw someone selling the same bike about 3-4 months ago and now its been at Carters for about 2 months. Any advice you guys can give me?

I was looking at the chain in person and it looks pretty rusty, like it doesn't get lubed enough. The sprockets look fine though. The rep said that they can make it look brand new with some kind of machine? Is that just fluff or would I have to consider having to get a new chain if I do commit to it?

It bothers me when a shop/dealer is selling a used bike and they can't even be bothered to give it a proper detail.

I have noticed in the past that bikes sit at Carter for an extensive period of time ... That's due to either price or presentation and I suspect a bit of both.

I worry as to why somebody would change the faring on a bike like that. Seems odd. And if the chain of all things appears neglected who knows what else might be.

as motorcycle is left untouched the chain will rust for sure b/c of the moisture and not being ridden.
