It's my first bike, just got into riding, the guy before me never rode it so it only has 260 miles on it. Some day I'll have a Triumph Speed Triple next to it.

Nice! I see you had an SV and tracked it ... Sweet! I used to race an SV ... great, underrated bikes.

Welcome to the forum!
Thank you!
I loved my SV.
Easy to ride and very forgiving.
Well, except once at a track when I was making a stupid choice.
Put 35,000 miles and went away to Arizona somewhere.

Welcome to the boards!

Rough drop! Love the Repsol CBR's, have been eyeing one at the dealership next door for some time now. How do you feel about yours?

I absolutely love mine.
I'm more like a supersport (600cc) rider than a superbike (1000cc).
So it works for me.

Though, if you are bigger guy, you might want to consider 1000RR instead.
Also 2014 CBR1000RR SP has everything you need.

And there are S1000RR HP... Endless.

Small dude. 5'9'' 135lb.

Went from a '08 ZX-10, to my now '12 650R. Kawi's for whatever reason.

I don't really want a liter bike again, it's just unnecessary, but I really want to get on a 600 with a little more power than I currently have with the 650.

I usually ride alone, so I'm just looking for something different that I can control myself with, which is already hard enough.

I'm 5'3", so tell me about it.

If that's the case, CBR600RR should be perfect for you.
You probably can put both feet on the ground.
Where I only can reach one foot only.

Ha, yeah I didn't have a hard time flat footing on the ZX10 or the 650, fortunately.

I thought about getting a ZX6, but I want to get away from Kawi and try something new.

Wouldn't mind a Duc of some sort, but I do mind the price tag.

Well, my Repsol wasn't all that cheap.
If you can find a 2013 brand new, it's still gonna be over $10K.
Taxes and everything probably somewhere $11,500-$12,500.
It was more like $12,500-14,500 last year.

Probably wouldn't buy new again. I bought the 650R new, and I didn't feel any different about it from buying the ZX10 used. Honestly, not sure why I bought the 650 new in the first place.

The one on their floor is used. I'm not sure on the mileage, but I think they have it listed at $9,250.

It's only a year old.
It can't be more than 10,000 miles.
My guess is probably somewhere around 4,000 at the most.
Check to see if it has any aftermarket parts.
My Akrapovic evo system itself was $2,500 + Power Commander.

I'll check it out next week when I get my new front tire installed. I can't recall if it had stock pipes or not, I'm pretty sure it did though.

Hell, I can't believe I'm still on stock pipes on my 650.

I love my low growl.
And it does get louder when it opens up.

I am unfortuately heartbroken, and a bit embarrassed to say that my beautiful 2 wheeled baby was stolen this weekend..

That make two bikes that some coward has taken from me and I was not able to stop him in his tracks because I was not aroung to challenge the thief.

Of course I would want to replace it, but it would just most likely be a matter of time before someone decides to take that one from me too.

Just can't have nice things in this world without someone cowardly plotting against you behind your back, instead of working to earn it (like most of us here) or even having the decency to at least face and challenge the guy you want to take it from.

I am not really the vengeful type, but I REALLY want to cause damage to the flesh of the people responsible for the theft of my perfect (for me) BMW.

That really sucks...
It has to be someone who studied you enough to know you'll be gone over the long weekend.
Do you have any security system at home?

Either way.
Hope they can catch this guy with your bikes.
Or wishing you a smooth transaction with the insurance company.

Thank you. I really appreciate the well wishes.

You are absolutley right. they must have been watching for a couple weeks at least, because they knew to bring a bolt cutter to cut the lock/chain I use to secure my bike.

Also, my work hours are pretty erratic, so they plotted for the perfect time to strike. bastards.

Still have a little less that 3 months left of good riding weather, so I REALLY am torn between going out to get a replacement now, wait for the insurance to do their thing before picking up a replacement (6-8 weeks)... or maybe just curbing my erge to ride to avaiod going through this again when someone decides to stalk my neighborhood again for potential bike thefts.

My new 2013 ninja 650. I don't have many modifications on it yet but it's coming along. Been riding for about 3 months now and I love it.
