Which bike?

Ok, I am done dealing with aches and bruises and cable ties and gaffa tape, and visiting the wreckers for new bits... My F4i stunt bike is also in demand, so I figure its time to sell Scarr and return to the track, and stop drawing so much attention when I am on the road.

Time to buy a road bike. Now I have always been partial to R1's, have fixed the suspension on a mates 05 R1, and have ridden a '99 and still loved it.

So I want to get one, but do I go for a deal where I get an older model that is in top condition, and a write off same year that I can fix and turn into a track bike, or do I get a later model and hope I don't kill it on the track (like I did my last track bike...)

Or should I be sticking with the Hondas.... I'd be keen to hear what others thought about all this.

Get a used R1. You must like to stunt since you had done all that damage to your F4i. You know your gunna want to try it on the R1 so get something used that way if it takes a hit its no big bust. but thats just my
