i think i'm gonna sell the F4

believe me, i don't want to, but... i need to make room in my budget and my "garage." what would i buy that is so much better than my beloved F4?


this the exact bike that i am looking to buy. Moto Stretta is my friend Tomohiro's shop. the guy on the phone in the background is my friend Jeff. lets just say this bike is 1 of only 3 in Japan. i started it and sat on it today on my way back from Okutama.

think i could get $9,000 for my F4? 2002 with 12,XXX Km on the Odo. not selling with the Motocorse exhaust. i'll save that for my next F4 when i get back to the states.

All, I've already counseled young Nick on the phone. Seems like he is smitten with this little hottie and it looks like he may be a goner. Can't argue with the choice of bike, friend of mine here had one (this one maybe?) and it is pretty sweet.....




Nick: what will you do regarding garaging it.... ? Better than what the F4 had or the same? You don't want the wind screwing this one up.

If I could have another bike with money not being a big problem the DB8 would be at the top of my list. My only concern would be maintenance and reliability.

lol! tell me about it. reliability shouldn't be too bad. the TL engine is pretty damn good. and parts are usually pretty easy to come by. the throttle bodies, maybe not so much, but how often do people need to replace their throttle bodies? and it even has a TL headlight, so that's cake if case i need to replace it. now bodywork... yeah... lol!
