Why waste the money? You can buy Kawi race parts and build a close to spec AMA bike for 11k, with a left over 08 that's 19-20k, throw in Ohlins, Wheels of choice, and whatever else you'd like and end up at 30k. Spend the remaining 10k+ on tires and track days.......
nice bling machine,.but I would be more impressed if it had a balls out worked up motor also!.........or at least a snail hanging on it!........anybody can buy a bunch of Chrome stuff and bolt it on a bike!....and yeah,..........38k?..........he be lucky to even see 25 in this economy!......nice show bike though!.......and 38K with no custom paint?......WTF?
I understand that, and my reply was obviously my opinion.:idea:Yea that's kool nothin wrong with that. But that's what YOU like. Not everyone is into the track day thing, the race look ect........Some people think that is a waste of money too. Everyone is different. There is no right or wrong way on how to spend money on your bike. It's your money and your bike so you can do whatever you want with it.:idea:
yeah,.I can see that I guess,......I like the bike though!....looks good! I would rock it at bike night or something!....but I like the curves way too much!!Here's what he was thinking! He was like I got the LE flame edition graphix so there's no need for custom paint! I'll just dump money into everything else. I bet that's what he was thinkin. I mean b/c to the average person who doesn't know about bikes in general or more specifically the zx-10r. They will look at that an think it really is a custom paint job! Even people that ride bikes are stupid like that an ask is that a custom paint job just b/c they don't know or keep up with bikes. So I can't knock him on that it's easy to fool the average person. But I agree if you're gonna spend that much you might as well go the extra step an put 5 more grand in for custom paint.
Well a regular vehicle, ie family car? No, unless I have 4 kids and have that kind of income. I havent run a buying situation in my head where I had to lay out 40K to get a reliable vehicle. I can normally do it for under 20K (used for sure). At the same time the object of interest is a power sport vehicle.You'll spend 40k on a car tho, won't you? :dontknow:
