Sell it or hot rod it? (the Niner)

What do you think? I bought it damaged for a song, had a lot of fun fixing her up, have just gotten it street legal and started to put miles on it. I like it and have begun to appreciate it for what it is but am not its ideal owner. If it stays, it will need to be tweaked beyond the normal bolt-ons.
I'm thinking it should go to someone who needs it more than me and I should look for a replacement (after all, you can't have a bare spot in the garage right?).
I'll put a few hundred more miles on it before I decide.

My brother in law will ride it Friday. If he doesn't want it, it goes on ebay Saturday.

Never take a relative's money for a bike. You can only give it to him for free.

Noooooooo.
He does get the "family discount" though which means I make no profit.

I like that philosophy. Why don't I have anyone like you in my family.

My philosophy is if you won't give a bike to a close Relative, then sell it to someone else. Then if they have ANY "issue..." there are no family rifts.

He's been riding an old vf700 since forever. The 919 would be a nice upgrade for him & he would not find a nicer one for the price.

I'd sell it and get something else if it isn't your ideal bike, but what do I know, I just sold mine...
