    Unhappy May have to sell

    Well, it look like the recession may be catching up with me, there is a major re shuffle at work and I could end up with one of three things. 1st, and the best case, I might get a pay rise, (management re shuffle), 2nd, I might have to take a pay cut, and 3rd and worst, I may be out of a job. .

    So here's the most crap bit of it all, I might have to sell my pride and joy. She's an 07 RSVR Factory in Red Lion colour's with all the usual Factory bit's like, OZ wheel's, carbon fairing parts, carbon front mud guard, carbon rear hugger, Ohlins front and rear, Ohlins steering damper, and Brembo brakes. She's done just 3,500 mls, has full main dealer SH, is always kept in a garage on an optimate, not ridden in the rain, (I hate all the cleaning after), and is all standard apart from the following.

    1) The previous owner had the frame polished, I was told he wanted the Factory but didn't like the caramac frame, (this is one of the reasons I went for this bike, IMO it looks a lot better for it).

    2) Oval high level titanium Leo Vince SBK exhaust system with carbon heel protectors. They look great, sound gorgeous, are great quality, as well as being pretty light.

    3) Map 2 activated.

    4) Tail tidy with slightly smaller number plate, (not to small).

    All the standard parts will be included if I sell.

    I'm a bit confused as to the price I should let her go for if I need to, I've seen them up for as little as 5,500 and as much as 7,000 , so what do you guy's reckon .

    I CANT UPLOAD PICS FOR SOME REASON, SO IT'S A PAIN, BUT IF YOU WANT TO TAKE A LOOK YOU'LL HAVE TO HAVE A LOOK IN MY GARAGE.

    Cheer's Stu.

    Cheers mate, I am hoping I won't have to sell it, but thought I'd better put it up before I needed to if you know what I mean.

    Not sure I'll be around for the ride out tomorrow, If I am I might be up for it.
