I liked my Diablo Rosso Corsas, but I won't pay retail for them (they were take-offs). Michelins have served me well in the past, so I have high hopes for these.

I just recently got a job selling cars on the european side. I'm starting with VW's and such, but get the chance to drive around Audi, BMW, hopefully going to take this 2013 911 we just took in on a trade, someone snagged it before me this morning.

But it's amazing how different the way they sell cars compared to bikes. Man bike dealerships around here just are...idk after learning about car selling, it's like they don't care about money. ha

I found the weirdest motorcycle forum. A guy that I ride with told me there was a local forum for riders. I had forgotten that I was on it a few years ago but it was always dead so I stopped going. Anyway I decided to give it another chance.

So like on PBNation how you have the "User Text" under your name, I entered "Knees in the Breeze." But when I saved it, it came out "Cliche removed by Robot." Apparently "Robot" is their "System." After asking about it I was told that ALL motorcycle related cliches are filtered. How stupid is that? It's a motorcycle forum that doesn't allow ANY motorcycle jargon.

But it has dozens of threads with people complaining about how dead the place is and the admins and mods asking for suggestions to improve it. I gave them one. They didn't like it.

I'd ride it, but not for $3k. That 125 can't be much fun for anything except dicking around in parking lots and residential streets.

Looks like a good replacement to the crf50 for pit bike stunting. Still better than a moped too.

agreed, 3000 is way too much for a 125cc bike

Says you guys.

I'm sorry, but how much cheaper could they possibly make it and still make money.

A friend of mine is currently in the running to win "Picture of the week" on a website.

I'm trying to help him win it, and it would be awesome if I could get some of you guys to help out as well.

Right now, it's Honda vs Aprillia. (Honda is who I want to win, obviously) He is in the chicken suit. Go and vote it 5 Stars. Should take less than 10 seconds to help out.

**** people on craigslist. Dude emailed me offering 1100 dollars for my ninja (i have it listed for 1600). When I told him, in a roundabout way, to go **** himself (i was in a bad mood. rough day), he comes back quoting KBB value (which lists lower than what these sell for in my area in the damn spring time) at 1450.

So offer me 1450 you piece of dog ****. ****.

Yeah, it's a new bike guys not some clapped out Craigslist special that daddy is selling for meth money.

New Michelins are super stable. These are going to be great at HPT.

I'm with you from a seller's perspective, but when buying I'm willing to make myself look a little *******ish to save a few bucks. I'm trying to teach my dad to ride my Ninja so I can sell it, I have a pretty serious ankle sprain and the doctor said it's likely to be 6 more weeks before I can walk comfortably without it rolling and up to a year or more before it tightens back up. I got into the battery and topped it off, took a charge and runs perfect.

Whoever else busted up their ankle and had to take off riding, I feel your pain. As soon as I'm unable to ride, I get all the motivation in the world to take her for a spin

1400 or 1500 would have been at least somewhat reasonable. The main thing that made me was when he wanted to argue back with KBB value after offering me 350 dollars under KBB value.

It's like hey, not only am I going to offer you a ****ty insulting amount, I'm going to confirm for you exactly how ****ty it is and then say it's reasonable.

$350 under is rough, and arguing (not haggling) with a seller is incredibly stupid if you want their bike. I started watching American Pickers, their negotiation skills are pretty legit, especially the line "you can't buy it and sell it"
