paying a price for a bike isn't just the only thing my friend :)... i was once asked that if i had unlimited amount of money and i was to buy a car and a bike..which ones would i buy...and i answered
CAR = 1967 Dodge Charger or 1973 Ford Mustang
BIKE = 2006 ZX-6R or the FIRST ZX-14R
upon this reply they asked me...WHY SUCH OLD MACHINES ?
and i said because you have to earn them :)...not buy them... i believe we haven't earned our right to get good machines yet if we don't come to understand them or respect them :)...
The first time i rode a Yamaha R1 ... i literally screamed in my helmet and stopped the bike after 30 seconds or so. I have ridden many good bikes till now but i feel that i have not earned the right to ride the 1000cc bikes yet. Its not that i can't buy them...just that i don't want to buy them ...YET
