Sad Day!

Got a phone call around noon, a guy that has ridden with me some calls and says, what will you take for your bike?, I call him back and tell him i will have to have $8500 cash to sell.well, he's comin by tonight with the cash.

Time to start shopping, i've been eyeballing a cherry 05' GSXR 750, 900 miles $8000.00, but i just know that they will be changing the 750's for 06'.

I din't think i can wait that long. I could pull out the beast,"my 4000 mile cherry 98' 750" but damn that means i miss the last track days of the year,

What to do, what to do?

Vash, i need a shoulder to cry on!

That's IF they change, Suzuki in the past usually waited 3 years before changing 600s/750s. Which bike are you selling?

...I'd say he's selling the 1000.




In God, we trust; all others must provide data.

correct, i am selling the 1000. It is most likely that suzuki is changing the 600, and 750's, they will most likely follow the 1000, i have a friend who works for suzuki, the 06' 1000's are already on order, the 600 and 750's, are TBA. If you go to the suzuki web site, they show the 06' 1000 but not the 06' 600 or 750.


The guy called me tonight, and said he had to work late, so it would be tomorrow night, damn i hate waiting.

Ya I kinda presumed it was the 1000, but on second thought, I remembered you liked the bike. so why sell it just to get a 750?

I hate to sell it, but hear are the reasons, it is an 03', i gave $8000 for it a little over a yr. ago (with everything already on it).

So i really cannot pass up $8500, that is making 500 and putting 7k miles on it.

The reason for buying the 750, i was looking to buy a 750 when i bought the 1000, the 750 will be a much better track bike for me, being that it is a pretty short technical track and i am only about 160 pounds, the 1000 can get hairy exiting tight turns from time to time, and i really cannot use the 1000 power anyway.

I am not the guy who has to have the 1000 cause its faster, i need what is well suited for what i'm gonna be using it for.

And to top it off, here it is wed. morning and he still has not come through yet, keeps postponing for one reason or another, bout to say screw it.

Cmon izzy you're getting a new bike, its a good thing.
prior to this last couple of years manufacturers used to change their bikes every 4 years, and do minor revamps every 2. suzi did it on odd years, the rest of the guys on even. So based upon that, I would say there are no changes coming to the 750 in '06. However lately the competition seemed to have gone a notch, with kawi doing a new 636 in '05 and supposedly a brand new zx10 for '06, all to answear suzi and their k5. having a new chassis, I would expect suzi to modify the 600 and 750 to fit in the new chassis. However I'm not sure if thats going to happen in '06 or '07. To be honest, I expect them to drop the 750 alltogether soon.



I wish they'd make a new busa...

+1 on the busa.

But i still bet that suuzi changes the 600, and 750. How much they change is yet to be seen. But if they were not changing them at all, they would be showing the 06's on the web site,(like they are the 1000), but we shall see.

But it does not really matter to much, there is no way i can wait till march for a new revamped 750,(if there is one) so its prob gonna be the 05'.

But there is always the posibility of a K5

Dude, just go ahead and get the K5. You've been ranting and raving about that bike since we've met. Treat yourself. You know you are going to wish you had if you get anything else.

Sure i want the K5, but is it what i need for what i am doin? Not really.

See this is one of those times where i must control my primal urges, as hard as it may be.

And what about those frames! All the talk of the K5 frames, well lets just say it doesn't leave that warm fuzzy feeling in my stomach.
