Not sure if this will be well received, but I want to throw it out there. Feel free to PM me if you're interested.
As you can tell by my collection, I'm relatively new to the hobby. I'm also in the Army and can only do so much with that government salary.
I have a 2008 Yamaha FZ6R (yellow sportbike, R6 engine but geared more for city driving than racing, with a more comfortable seating position than the racing bike). Kelly BB says I could sell it for 3 to 4k. However, there are a few issues; it hasn't been ridden in about a year or so, the battery is drained, and it probably needs to be serviced before I would consider it safe for a real ride. Aside from a small scratch on the top of the gas tank, though, it's got low milage and looks great.
I'd be willing to trade it for a decent playing machine (preferably one of those that averages in the 2-3k range). For the right pin, I also have some extras like a helmet, padded jackets, fender-eliminator kit, and other things I'd be willing to throw in.
Mods, if this kind of trade isn't allowed, please feel free to delete this post.
