Is this a good deal for my girlfriend???

she's looking at getting a bike, and we found this deal today, the guy is financing it and he's looking for someone to buy it out from him. i dont know a lot of details on it except that its never been dropped b4... it seems to be a nice bike and its about an hr from here so we might go check it out, im just trying 2 get you guys opinion on it first.... also she's an average rider, and she rides my 03 r1 like a champ on the back roads and this will be her first bike, but she's been riding my bike on and off for the past 2 yrs and now she wants her own bike.... let me know what you guys think...

'05 636...excellent bike. Good power and light. Good price as long as its mint.
You guys will really like it. The only downfall is when you get off a liter bike and realize how much less torque and horsepower it has.

its not for me.. its for her so the loss of power and torque isnt that big of a deal to her, she just wants something to ride so she doesnt hafta ask 2 ride mine all the time lol, and she already has a cavalier so the bike will get better gas mileage than her car. i think it'll be a good investment 4 her.

If it's a first bike, that's a lot of bike.

If it ain't broke, fix it 'til it is.

Check it out real good, that seems to be priced a little to low, but maybe the guy is just dumb.
