    I thought about getting the VFR, but the upgraded suspension was worth the price of the NC35....the VFRs are a little more beat down around here, also.

    I ordered some stuff from sportbiketrackgear.com a few weeks ago (RS Taichi gear). Their prices are good, and even with shipping, not as much as buying stuff from the local shops.

    so if i do get a 2nd hand, id need third party insurance? i looked at some old threads and people recommended kwiksure. can anyone advise a price range? or does it vary depending on the person/vehicle?

    im very new to being a grown up and i've never bought a car/bike before. im still trying to figure out a budget.

    okiboy ;

    yeah I bought some draggin jeans over the net - its just nice to try stuff on .....


    mike-

    u need to get insurance and u need to produce it in order to transfer the vehicle documents to your name..

    PM me and I will give u my agent sabrina's number - can be done over the phone..

    simply fax her a copy of the vehicle docs prior to sale - then meet the guy u buying from at the Transport department - show them the money but dont give it to them until u at the counter and transfer to your name is in process

    mine was 1300 ( few years no claims ) I think its usually 1700 -2000 ( unless u want learner insurance in which case 4500 )

    actually most bike shops can help u get the insurance even if u dont buy a bike from them- but the brokerage company they all deal with has poor attitude to customer service -

    hence I found that my own household/medical insurance lady could arrange - and its waaaay easier than having to trudge to "that other company" when ever u need changes etc..

    ( like they made me get the bus down there and pay 400 in cash - just to get cover note for change of bike.. ) wouldnt issue first let me pay an hour later. or ATM transfer

    Ninja

    Gotta love the Ninja's. Had a ZZR1100 back in the days, and here's my hypersport in HK! ZX12R

    I've put on a Yoshimura exhaust (oh the sound is a beauty), and did a fender eliminator kit as the stock fender looks ugly..

    @audiot - i totally hear you about trying stuff on. Sizes for bike gear run different between all manufacturers....more so, even, than shoe companies (i.e nike, adidas, etc)

    I got insurance easily through the people that sold me my bike @1500 for the year. Not bad at all, considering in the US I'd probably be paying this amount monthly.

    However, they did NOT tell me that they also used another 3rd party agent to acquire this....so when i needed to provide proof of insurance, the actual insurance company wouldnt give me paperwork, and neither would the bike shop. I had to find some tiny room hidden back on the streets of Sham Shui Po that produced the proof for me. They also refused to answer all 6 of the phone numbers they had listed on various sites....Total PITA....
