I'm 22. Born and raised west Michigan. I've been looking all over Craig's list for a 2002 and newer Cbr, gsxr, or r6/r1..(not new to riding just the forum) .. Hoping someone knows of something for sale. I'm looking in the 3500$ price range but can go higher and I'm not to worried about scratches and little stuff. I'm willing to travel to travel to find a good one. PLEASE let me know if you can point me in the right direction. Thank you for reading

Welcome to TWMI, I ride an R1 myself and would highly recommend the bike to any experienced rider.

BTW, that Ducati is priced to steal, I might have to think about that one myself.

That still seems low.

Not as tempting now but still a great deal. Heck that Termignoni exhaust probably cost close to 2k itself!

And BTW in regards to the OP another bike to consider would be the Honda F4i , they are great starter bikes!!

That still seems low.

Kinda high miles 8,400 I will have more than that on my bike this year.

that Buell Blast would be a good starter bike for sure..
