    sedition is going bike shopping (insurance finally cleared!)


    YAY! Insurance check *finally* cleared and now i can *offically* go shoppping for a new bike. I'm still considering a used bike, but if i can find a dealship that has good deals on a 2005 R6 / R1, I might be tempted for something in all black

    SO....can anyone tip me off to any dealerships that have good out-the-door prices on 2005 Yamaha's?

    thanks in advance!

    I was succesful by going to 3 dealers

    Got the best offer then went to my local guy and he matched it.

    Also I think that Ohio ebay guy gives you a good idea of the bottom pricing

    R1 good choice but look at king zx 10r

    You might want to hold out for a few weeks. Let the dealerships make it through Christmas, and year end bonuses, etc. About late January, mid-Feb you might be able to swing a better deal. Good Luck...

    sidewinders is still the best deal i seem to have come across. i'm gonna go try to check-out that bike out this weekend along with an 03 R1....however, IF i came across a *really good* deal for an 05, which i havn't so far, i'd be tempted.

    The question now is, where are you going to store whatever new bike you decide to get? I wouldn't want to lock it to that same bike rack again

    i know, right? I've been thinking about this ever since the day my bike got stolen. what am i going to do differentlly with the next one? for starters I'm gonna add two Krypto New York chains. they clearlly didn't have enough time get through two last time (dosn't meant the wont the next hime, however). prolly one for front wheel / one for back, both locked to something immovable. I'm also gonna move it to some where closer to peoples houses (i.e. prxomity to windows may scare off someone with a blow-torch), and i'm gonna look into something like lo-jack. if they want it, they will get it. I just have to make as difficult for them as i can.

    The problem with alarms is everyone feels the need to set theirs off all the time for no reason so they don't attract the attention they should when it's needed A car alarm going off in the city is as common as everyday traffic noise
    Lo-jack would be good for tracking it down if you find out it's gone in a reasonable time, probably only a matter of time before they locate the transmitter Though i did see a show on Speed a couple years ago where a tracking device was appoxied to the inside of the frame on the bike?

    I'd at least store it in the house for the winter

    Well If you want the bike better come quick and better bring cash. Because once it snows out that bike isnt going anywhere unless you want to shovel my whole backyard to get it out of my basement.....then once spring the price is going up $500.00 bucks. I'll be home tonight leave a message saturday is the only day that I have free this weekend. Take care....

    The alarm works great. Never have false alarms. I store the bike in a garage but it's great when it's parked in boston and there are people all around, or if I go inside somewhere for dinner. The keychain will beep or vibrate when the alarm goes off. A range of a mile or a half mile or something. It also tells you what time the alarm went off and what sensors were tripped. Even if it doesn't atract any attention, if a loud alarm goes off a theif is not going to hang out and keep working on a lock or keep trying to push a bike onto a truck. It will scare them off, even if it's not atracting attention.
