636 is garbage slow, especially the black ones. Id rather ride a Vespa than one of those

Saw an R6, 848, and SV today. SV was perhaps the most boring bike Ive seen but seems to be a good, cheap platform

It is and it is.

here are some bikes I've seen over the past few days:

Ducati 848



28K miles with a clean title. He was asking 5500, I offered him 3K and he said he'd swing 4K at the end of our meeting. but way too many miles and we couldn't get it started with a bump start. Pass.


R6 Anniversary



Has 21K miles on it. It's pretty clean but has a CEL for code 18. Ran funny, didn't have any torque to pull away from a stop sign - probably due to the code. I didn't like the power delivery, so I passed.


SV650S



Not bad, seems well maintained. But not as exciting as the Ducati or R6.


1998 GSXR 600 SRAD





Friend's bike, only has 300 miles on it. Yes...300. Ran two years ago though. We haven't talked about a price, but looks hella 90s.


I think I've narrowed it down to Aprilia RSV/Tuono or Triumph 675/1050. SV is too boring for me.

yeah I've made offers to no avail. It's overpriced considering its issues and mileage

That's pretty cheap. I'm not sure there's a better deal out there.

Awhile back there was one for $2600 in NC, 26K miles no issues.

Seems that Aprilias are overpriced or underpriced these days lol

Disagree. $3300 is a great price for an '08 R.

I'm cheap and all for a good negotiation, but yeah that RSV1000R is definitely priced right for what is probably a minimal amount of work needed.
