Motorcycle: an 01 gsxr 600 by the time u read this hopefully
new to gixxer.com, definite buyer
My name is pj & I'm a new rider from chicago within 3 weeks of purchasing his first bike which will undoubtedly & inarguably be an 01 gsxr 600-a bike in which I have seen eyebrow raising prices that fluctuate.we will touch on that later.
I first got bitten By the bike bug when my dad had ahis zx11 back when I was 12.I thought he was the coolest thing for him to have a bike. So as I got to college & met new people, joined organizations, etc., I was randomly called up by a frat brother one day to learn how to ride a bike. I jumped at the idea and headed right over to his place. He taught me the ins and outs on his katana 750. The moment I pulled off on that bike was the moment I made up my mind. Fast forward to today and I am about 3 weeks away from purchasing my very own.
The choice of an 01 Gixxer was not hard at all. It's fast, its a great 1st bike size as far as CCs, & I've always thought that it was the most gorgeous bike on the road. Mind made up.
Now, I'm working at Cedar Point in Sandusky Ohio searching for my Gixxer of choice in the Chicago area( something I can DEFINITELY use your help with).
now i have seen this particular bike as cheap as $2000 and as expensive as $5000 in alleged good condition. To be quite honest I do not mind a few Knicks and flaws here and there, as long as it looks and runs good overall and is reliable. What should I be paying and where would be a good place to look for a good price?
