Talktalktalktalktalktalk. Yeah, Dan. I'd have a torrid, passionate affair with Lauren Bacall when she was 19 and starring with Humphry Bogart. Except that it's NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!Sort of like you buying or even leasing a Ferrari.A man of admittedly low ability like yourself could easily find any number of excellent, 5K bikes right here on the CCS board. Any of these bikes would be capable of turning way better lap times than you could, as you have said yourself. The extra 15K difference between this option and an Italian bike with full bling would buy you more entry fees and tires than most of us could ever dream of. But, like my affair with Lauren Bacall or your Ferrari, IT AIN'T NEVER GONNA HAPPEN!According to you, you rent Macinaw Island for a bachelor party, lease a McLaren for a quick drive to the 7-11, or buy an ex-Rossi GP bike to run track days. But for all your purported money and passion for this sport, you can't buy a used, race-prepped R6, and show up for one lousy track day.Talktalktalktalktalktal ktalktalk.In High School, there were athletes. Then there were guys who worked with the team as gofers, tapers, bat boys, or whatever. The school called them assistant trainers. We students called them athletic supporters.Either buy a bike and go racing, or shut up and go away. You don't have to be fast. You don't even need to win a trophy. Just show up and race. This board is for racers, not dreamers.
Umm, Dan:1) If you can't afford an AMG, a GTO is so far out of your price range it's ridiculous.2) You would only buy a 250 GT? Well, duh, do you know anybody leasing one? ;D3) If you think leasing is a better deal, once again you need someone to explain basic finance to you. I hope "your company" doesn't allow you anywhere near the money. If they do, are they publicly traded? I want to short that stock. ;DAnyway, I'm more excited about modern cars but I would gladly accept a 427 Cobra. I actually don't care much for old Ferraris (but I know their value). Porsche 917 is cool but I prefer wings on my airplanes. :)
Is that so? Tell me Papa, my two current car payments for the Pacifica and the Jeep add up to $1050.83 a month, not including insurance and such. Why is an AMG out of my range again? Now, you said AMG, not SL65. Furthermore, think of how many cars I could've gotten for what my Jeep alone lease cost is. My Jeep is $607.00 a month. For that, I could've gotten:Audi S4, A4, A6.BMW 5 series or M3MB E Class, M Class, C ClassC6 Vette, Escalade, Navigator, ect.
Cut the crap, you said you wanted a SL/CL 65. I say that ain't happening.I'll drop the leasing/financing argument: I won't try to explain discounted cash flows to you.
Hey Chris, ... But, in 2003, I spent more time at the race track than you did.
I'd be hard pressed to find someone who wasn't an instructor or Control rider who spent MORE time at the track than K3. This guy lives, breathes, eats, sleeps and pisses racing.
