Question i dunno

hey guys, i have a question and was wondering if you could give me some advice....just bare with me...lol

let me explain why i am asking....i was born in da USA but brought up in England all my life...i got here like two years ago to carry on with my studies....when i first got here i didnt have a social security number....and didnt know how important it was to get one....by the way i have a dual nationalty, thats why i can stay here....lol...lucky me. now after 1 year and 9 months of applying i finaly get a social....thanks god.

now that i can finance i was wondering if i should buy a motorbike or just wait an extra 2 months to save up for a procharger....i have $2900 saved up now...and could go either way ....put on a down payment and finance the rest on the motor bike or as i said wait a bit longer and get the procharger......what you guys think?

any advice would be greatly apreciated...and i have already thought about the turbo way but not realy inthused about going that way...no offense to any peeps with turbo...i know you can get better numbers with it.

well here yah go...save up and get a faster car with shittier gas mileage, or keep the weekend driver how it is and buy a bike and get a zillion mpg and then still be able to have fun in the svt :) although the kit would be fun!!!! it's up to you man :) Personally I would never get a bike considering the people over by me have no consideration and would kill you in a second on one and then drive away. I dunno about florida though :)

Well, were it my money, I'd buy the bike. There's almost nothing on 4 wheels to even match a 600cc bike in a straight line, how else will $6000 get you a 12sec 1/4 and under 3.0s to 60. Also, its just plain awesome.

I'll probably get a bike someday, but for now I'm pretty well convinced I'd kill myself, a bunch of my friends ride, the power is addicting.

If you were me, i would go for a bike. Something fun, like a R6. Ive always had more fun with bikes than a car.

That's a very sweet bike, especially as a first purchase. Very underrated. But you'll love the v-twin torque and I don't feel it's a bike you'll outgrow anytime soon. Congrats, I think you made the wise choice
