sailorjack Posted December 17, 2014 Share Posted December 17, 2014 As someone whose had more than 20 motorcycles of all flavors over the years and averages about 10000 miles on a bike each year (last year was an oddball, about 21000 miles in 12 months) you would think I'd be able to relax when a new bike is released but noooooo. So I am stuck going back and forth between a smart money decision and going into debt. The smart side of Jack says "Hey, lets get a 5th generation VFR. You've had a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 6th gen VFR in the past and you know how much you love them, they are cheap enough to pay cash for and they offer 80% of what you want/need in a bike" Then the dumb-ass SailorJack says "F that mess! The FJ-09 looks to be the near perfect bike for you! Modern everything and since you put a bunch of miles on your bike every year you can justify a payment since you'll likey hang on to a new bike until the wheels fall off!" My wife is no help, she says "well, you really like the bike and we can afford the small payment so go ahead" If I'm smart I'll save pennies for a year and settle for the 5th gen VFR while I raise enough for a new FJ-09 or a lightly used, well accessorized FJ-09 in a year or two. I don't think I'm smart enough for that though. Talk me out of it! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
