    Been about 2 years, but I'm back riding again. It feels good. I did miss it, especially w/ the nice weather now! Anyway, I traded my 2001 s10 for the bike. I didnt see much sense in having 2 pickups, and after having the truck up for sale for close to 2 months w/o it selling, I figured this was a good trade when it was offered to me.
    2005 gsxr750. Slip on exhaust, previous owner removed the secondary tps (throws a code, which is annoying, but i'm used to CEL's at this point, lol), and it had new tires, battery and a couple other things done last season. Has 8400 miles on it too. Anyway, heres a couple pics :)

    Thanks man. I think it was a good trade and I'm definitely enjoying riding it. Wish I was still out in Phoenix though. The roads over here are trashed and drivers are nuts, lol

    hah, yea, I suppose thats probably true, however, I really never had any problems w/ the s10. It was an awesome truck to own for 6 years :)

    Sweet ride! I miss mine too... I had a Kawasaki ZX7R with full "kit" motor, basically a street legal race bike. I may be picking up a streetfighter/cruiser in the near future, we'll see. Anyways congrats on the bike and avoid the fuzz, they love the sport bikes!

    Thanks man! You definitely should pick up another bike! I'm enjoying riding so much more this time around for some reason. maybe b/c its been so long w/o one.
