Cant Believe it....***UPDATED***

***UPDATE**

Read my last post....




Ok so I screwed up...blah.... I actually have butterflies in my stomach.

I have been looking at RC51s for SOOOOOOOO long. I used to have a VTR1000 and loved the bike. I swore I would own nothing else after that than an RC51.

anyway about 2 weeks ago my wife gave me the ok to get another bike.

so a few RCs were for sale. one was beat up and asking way to much. The other was perfect but then the guy backed out of the sale and kept it. so I looked and looked. even thought about flying to another place and driving one back.

then I came across a 2006 zx10r ninja that was a smoken deal. couldnt pass it up. Bought the ninja. Well then 2 days later a sweet 2002 RC51 came for sale. had everything on it that I would need. Low mileage etc and an awesome price.

Now im stuck with this ninja. I could buy the RC and sell the ninja but wife will KILL me.

The RC is at a dealer so im trying to see what he would trade the ninja for but we all know how trades happen....

What would you guys do??

where is the head smash emote lol

Pic of the RC51. Its a 2002 with 22000km and has SATO pipes....and a picture of the ninja with a pipe and 33000km....

Actually, I think don't think Nobody got down like that, but MB is from IN

As for the original question...hmmmm...seeing this is an RC forum...hmmmm...I'd say sell the ZX and get an R6

2001 SP1 (sold)
2004 SP2 (properly stored)
2012 Ruckus (stolen)
2015 Grom (under construction)

Weyrauch pronounced (Y Rock)...Rock for short.

no love, no love at all hahah

Well I just traded that POS ninja and bought that 02 RC51.

It is in great condition. I paid 1000 incl taxes extra with the trade of the ninja but the guy threw in a front and rear tire...

here are some pics... absolutely love this thing...

Mods are from what I can see...double bubble windscreen, PCIII, rear under tail kit, braided brake lines, Sato racing pipes (not sure if full system) front shocks look to be a bit different on the top part, adjustable levers. and that's what I see for now..oh and a gear indicator but doesn't look to be working...

Looks like the prior owner added some accents on the feathers.
