    He decided to not buy a brand new CBR600 and Go Used. I talked him into it as buying a new CBR is waste of money. You can always find a well kept 09,10, from someone who didn't ride. Saves you 3-4K

    He decided the save money can go towards a lower mile 2nd Gen truck he originally wanted.


    Thanks Everyone

    ^ I went under and there is No Frame rust. That was one of the first things I checked for. Any welding or cutting and the famous 1st Gen Rusting. ​

    Check the part of the frame where it goes from a boxed to C frame, right where the bed starts. See if there is any cracking or damage.

    Uneven tire wear could mean suspension issues, f'd up tierods, or simply he just never was was at right tire pressures and never rotated. That's all I can think of right now.

    ^My buddy decided to buy a 2nd Gen Access Cab
