I wish i could find a cheap bike to ride to work during the week....That would save on gas ALOT and it would be fun...I would get a bike and save money and then finish up the ranger

if you get the bike get a CBR. they hold up longer and are better built then any Suzuki or Kawasaki. They have a better following than any other bike company. I love my '05 CBR 600 F4i. i wouldn't trade it for anyother bike.

HEY now !!!!!! My Ninja 636 is doing just fine. Bikes are like anything else, a little preventative maintence goes a long way.

I say do the bike. $4500 is a steal.

I say get the bike, but remember that you're gonna be paying about another $1500 on top of the bike cost for gear and taxes and stuff...
