"Say what you mean and mean what you say." One of the many things I attempt to use in my everyday life.

Shame that people get played but that's what I'm learning happens on here.

Thanks for your respectful feedback. You seem to be one of those genuine people I would consider a friend.

Thanks. Luckily the forums is full of them. You just have to know how to find them.

+1 I always look for one-owner with low miles and never get the first year of a new generation!

Good Luck to you man, I went through similar after a lay off and divorce. Things will get better as long as you keep a plan going and keep yourself motivated!

First make sure you set aside at least $500-$1000 for small emergencies, deductables, etc. Also, set aside or build at minimum 3mo. pay in savings, for lay offs, etc. Then, if you must have a bike, at least spend less of the settlement on a 08-10 model and pay for the insurance in one annual payment, which is far cheaper.

Re: Been a minute..

Thanks guys. I appreciate your input. And thanks for the e-thug help. It's like I said. I wasn't saying I was going to go buy one tomorrow with the last few bucks in my pocket. I was simply looking into getting one sometime in the future and just wanted some input on the new models. When I do get another one, I want to have plenty of money set aside and be well ahead on everything in-case anything happens.
