Whoops, never saw your response. All good reasons for sure to keep a bike like ours for general purposes.Sure do miss the ergos and gas and insurance.
I now get around 38mpg and insurance went up by 300 bucks per year.
These 600ss are terrible for errands and commutes thru daily traffic. Its like having a Ferrari in Manhattan. I now have a weekend and nightime thrill machine.
I was pretty close to getting a Ninja 300 or CBR500R but a part of me thinks if I only ride this one season I can sell it for not much less than what I paid for it. I don't want to take the new bike deprecation loss anymore. I took a bath on the CBR250
