I been off my wheels for a few years, had to sell "Her" some time back as I lost everything and ended up living at the damn Ywca. Well back on my feet and looking to move and attend collage at MMI in Orlando Florida next year, I want a bike again I will also need to get all new gear but I got it all covered with what I am getting.
I need advice on my next bike here, since I been out of it and in a "steamer on 4 wheels" should I return to what I am used to riding or should I get (insert beer face and pukey complexion here) a lesser bike?
My old bike was a Kawasaki ZX 10R stock 998cc, but I had it modded and in the end had a full Yoshimura engine and exhaust mod among others, in the end it was more like up there in CC and performance on par or more with any Busa. I had it topped out once at 220mph.
I REALLY hate this as I loved my old bike, was one of if not the fastest thing on 2 wheels in my area. I'll down grade if I need too, but don't want too. I need ot get my license again, get a bike take some schooling to refresh myself too. I plan on making the bike my main and only transport during my 13 months of collage in Florida so, I don't care about fuel as long as I am happy and have reliable and fun transport.
Any help or suggestions out there???

I'll sell you my 2006 Hayabusa: 13,000 miles, custom paint, custom wheels, tons of chrome, PC III usb, Ivan's TRE, Muzzy full race exhaust, Corbin seats, etc. If you're still looking for a bike let me know.
If you're not living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.
Sound like you already have some idea what will fill your need, so compared to your budget I'll bet you'll have your answer. Especially if you're going the used route; you'll be limited to whatever is available in your area. If you're thinking of getting one in IN, you'll be limited partly because I don't recognize that town and suspect its not near a metropolis (Indy, Cincy, Louis, Chitown). You'd also have the trouble of getting it down to Florida.
keep in mind that bike theft is pretty common, I gather, in FL. So you probably would be well served to have something somewhat unattractive. But your call.
EDIT: Congrats on the turnaround story. It says a lot when someone can pull themselves up by their bootstraps.
