Evil tempting bikes!

One of the guys I play softball with has a line on two Suzuki demo bikes. End of season, they are taking them out to the track this weekend then selling them (not racing, ride school). They are both GSXRs, one is a 600 the other a 750. He is looking at the 600 unless I'm interested, then he'd go for the 750. It is a wickedly smokin' deal - $7800 for the 600.

Hmm. This is one hella sexay bike. I seriously lust it. I love the look of it, and the price is soooo tempting. This bike new is $11800 (That's $4k off!) Here is where the kick ass justification comes in - even if I just ride it this fall and sell it in the spring I'd still make money. (hmm - could this be where I 'spend it like I stole it?'). I'm not sure my investment advisor would think it wise, but what he doesn't know won't hurt him.

And then there is the girly perspective - my leathers and helmet match this bike perfectly!
