I'm moving off to college early this August. I'm buying myself a bike as a graduation present. In my arguements with my parents about them letting me get it, my dad did bring up a good point. Where could I keep it while I am living in the dorms? There's no garage so that's out of the question. Is it ok to keep it outside in the parking lot? or will the sun damage the paint?
Getting a cover for your bike would be a good idea, most university housing allows for some parking pass purchases; look into it. And don't buy a new bike because that draws thieves nicely and is a bad starter anyway. See New Rider stickie threads for the rest of the conventional wisdom.

yeah, I was worried you'd say that. I'd really like to NOT have my bike stolen. Maybe I should just wait till I move into an apartment?
oh yeah, and ZX6R, yeah I do a little shooting haha. Just got my savage to group under a half inch at 100 yards. I know that was completely unrelated but I thought I'd throw that in since you mentioned it first haha.
Absolutely not! I'm using Winchester and Hornady brass, 24.5 grains of Varget, CCI primers, and 69 grain Sierra Matchkings and 68 grain Hornady BTHP Match bullets (I found these to be cheaper and just as good as Matchkings).
