Bare - I do hate to think of you being without a bike... who is Jack gonna ride with?!? I hope the insurance deal works out to your best advantage!
Total it, buy a $2000 Ninja 250 to hold you over, then sell it for the same $2000 when the CR gets here. You can get any number of bikes in good running condition for $2-3k and sell them for the same or mor come summer. And a handy guy like you could probably find a beater for around $1k and have it running smooth as silk within a week for next to nothing. Scott
I'd offer to join you, Jack, but for you it would be like getting stuck babysitting the neighbor's little girl. You'd spend your rides waiting - "where in the hell...??"
Mattsz, Id be honored to ride with you anytime !
Looking forward to riding with you guys again
