    ~$2.50/gal for gas this summer, it's not going to bite, it's going to engorge.

    It's funny someone started a thread yesterday about wanting an R6 and then I left work and saw some guy riding one home. It made me :wtc: because I want a bike too.

    I guess it depends on who your insurance company is. My insurance only went up an additional $80 a year when I bought the 1000. And that is full coverage on both.

    I'd buy a bike for the summer, just for the gas prices, but I think my wife would divorce me :o

    They're quick, fun, handle well and go stupidly fast. They're cheap to buy, cheap to maintain and....wait, talk you OUT of it? :doh:
