As I posted in the Suzuki thread, I am leaning towards purchasing a sportbike. See:
After spending another afternoon sitting on all the different bikes I have narrowed down my choices to the F4i and the R6. Of the two, the looks of the F4i impress me the most. There are two reasons why I eliminated the larger bikes. Among them are that I am too short and the dealers all seem to think that a 600 is all the bike you really need for Arkansas roads (do they make more money off the sale of 600s?)
I have several questions that are Arkansas specific:
1.) Do you know of a dealer that allows short test rides? (I'm an experienced rider, see my other thread.)
2.) How much did you pay for your F4i or R6?
3.) Who is your insurance carrier?
4.) Would you mind sharing your age and rate?
The best quote I have received for a one year policy with full coverage and a $500 deductible is $1600. My driving/riding record is spotless, being 24 seems to be killing me.
Any responses regarding insurance or the two bikes would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
