Re: Dreams

Haha well they say if you think about something a lot right before sleep you will dream about it so I guess it makes sense! I woke up and tried to fall back asleep real quick to pick back up on my dream without success!

Re: Dreams

are you getting the 08 fireblade then? I hope so. I just saw a few in person. The headlights are so cool. If you have a choice consider the white one.

It looks like the dealers are having a tough time selling them so you might be able to talk them down a bit.

Re: Dreams

I'm not to sure yet, if I can get a crazy deal on an 07 then I may just get that instead, I'm not awesome enough of a rider to really tell the difference ya know? Ill have to let you guys know when the time comes.

Re: Dreams

remember it has nothing to do with how good of a rider you are. You could buy a 2000 929 and get similar performance (or at least more than you could use). You are paying for the all new bike and the newest thing on the street. Why pay all that money and get something thats already been everywhere for a year. If you were going to get a year old, I'd just buy a 5 or 6 year old bike and save 1/2 the cost.

Re: Dreams

Well I'm not sure, I personally like the look of the 07 over the 08 as I'm sure some will agree. And yeah its older but I'm not really worried about that, It will be a few more seasons before I can start to really use the bike for what its made to do. I think Ill be content on the 07

Re: Dreams

If it will be seasons before you will be able to use the potential, why not buy a 929 or 954 with low miles. They will undoubtably have better resale (less loss of $ than the 07 or 08).

I mentioned this before, but remember the 96 civic vs the 95 civic. The 95 looked much better at the time. The 96 had these strange super huge clear headlights. Now EVERY car has huge clear headlights and it looks way better than the old 95 opaque smaller headlights. That is the way you can tell an older car from a newer one now.

The same thing will happen with the 07 vs the 08. If you are ok with older style, you could get good looks with the 954. You could also use a few of the $$ you saved for some really cool add on's to make it look even cooler.

Re: Dreams

Is your family giving you the money for the bike?

You could get prepared medical residency and school by asking them for their evidence for wanting you to buy from a dealer or at the very least get their rational.

You CAN buy a used bike from a dealer as well. Don't forget to talk them down though. My buddies dad went in and worked out a deal for a used bike and then after filling out all of the paperwork and taking up much of the salespersons time he said, No Way! I'm not going to buy it if this is the final price. I want it for what we agreed on (that was without taxes ect. and this was totally planned of course). He got his used R6 for $2000 under the asking price.

Re: Dreams

I think its more of an insurance deal for them. I'm not completely sure but theres no sense in demanding a used bike, they are paying for it and they wont give me the side money if I buy something cheaper so I figure what the hell, ya only live once.

Woke up wondering why my wife was beating on me, she was pissed off in her dream, I turned away Nicole Kidman and Angelina Jolie's invitation to have a foursome because I was tired.

I haven't been able to remember a dream in forever

Re: Dreams

Dreamt one time time I had one of those Y2K jet bikes...got on the thing and headed out to San Francisco just blasting past everything like mad...and suddenly I hit an old section of highway that had been destroyed in the last earthquake but for some reason wasn't blocked off. Caught more air than Evil Knievel. Suddenly had a cape and everything. Landed it, laughed like a madman, and looked up just before I plowed into the back of a Porsche. Woke up real quick from that one.
