It's got over a hundred thousand miles on it, and he gives it a 5 out of 10 on appearance. I was an assistant used car sales manager for a couple years, and I used to have to call and get buy figures from motorcycle dealers on trdes all the time.

uhhh.... no.... i has about 31-32000 miles on it.
You find a zx6e for that price(700-1000) in running condition, you snatch it up and sell it for double, easily...
IMO, streetfighter it and go wild.

Oh, woops! I was backward on the miles, duh. It's still not worth 2k.

Depends on the condition of the bike. It has to be up to date with its service. The bike is going on 14 years old. If I felt confident that it was taken care of and had a nice moist chain, clean sprockets, straight frame with certification, sealed forks, fresh tires and other regular maintenance papers, I would pay 1500 max. Especially if the cosmetics are beat and has visable crash damage. probably less though. If the bike looks trashed, and not just the plastics, I wouldn't let them give me the bike. you could spend 2,000 easily just getting it back on the road again.
Did I hear a RC for sale? I'm looking for one.

1. I'm up in Canada, meaning the bike only runs for about 4-6 months during the spring/summer/fall, and they are all fair weather riders.
2. The bike was sold certified, with papers and history check, no accidents (at least nothing more serious than minor dumps).
3. The only thing wrong with appearance really (maybe I shouldn't have given it a 5 out of 10) is a slight break in the right fearing. Scratches along the side, all minor, not highly visible, gas cover little hard to turn with key, but really OVERALL looks quite clean. Maybe more like a 7 out of 10 on appearance.
4. It is Canada, so it's Canadian dollars.
Well I'll just come out and say it, LOL, it was advertised for $2600, I bought it for $2100 which = $1766 U.S. dollars.
I'm about to post a picture...

Picture uploading is not working, I'll do it later.

What do you plan using the bike for?
4-6 months a year?
Thats the real luxory of living in California. I can ride year 'round. I would go crazy if I had to sit in traffic for six months in my car waiting for summer again so I could lane split.

School and work and all have me booked, but I try to dangle around AR as much as possible dude.
Nice to see everything is running well.

It's, I guess my "learning/practice" bike. And yeah, it can get shitty with traffic and all, so I mean, I'll be riding it couple times a week in the hot weather, I'm puretly fair weather/fair traffic rider, hahaha, sorta chicken too

Good decision on getting a cheaper used bike to start with. A lot of kids buy brand new r6's and wreck them by the end of the week. It sucks for them, but good for me because I can buy their used parts on E-bay.
My advise to a new rider. WEAR YOUR SAFETY GEAR. On real rides we wear full leathers. But just around town, MINIMUM, I don't leave the house without a good pair of riding boots, leather gloves, solid leather jacket, (don't go with that textile shit or ICON garbage) and of coarse a good helmet. Expect to have a few get offs.
Riding without gear is like going on a steroid cycle without anti-E's. Nothing may happen, but if it does, you're PHUCKED.
Believe me bro, shit happens.

Can't wait till summer of next year, maaaaaaan that's a long time away, hahaha. At least it's something real nice to look forward to.

$1766 US, I think you didn't take it too hard, I personally wouldn't pay over 1300-1400 for such a bike, but being in the business I am in I have good access to things like that at wholesale prices.

The cosmetics dont look bad at all. Maybe thats the good side though
Cool bike to start out with. Like anything else, do some research on how to handle the bike. There are a few good books out there that can give you the basics on riding techniques. They really do go a long way in learning proper position and how to handle corners.
