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.
