Hi. My name is Dustin and I'm a LCpl in the Marine Corps. As soon as I get back into the states I'm looking into buying a 99 Gixxer 600 for a first owned bike. I'm from Medina, Ohio but am currently stationed at Cherry Point, NC. I was wondering if there is anyone from around there that I could ride with when I get back. Also I was wondering if 3500 is a good price for a 99 with a spare engine that needs rebuilt (ate a rod) and a spare rear wheel with cush drive. It's missing the rear belly pan and has scratches on it. It also has 13k on the engine and about 19k on the bike it's self. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
