Buy AIG stock instead. It's a guaranteed winner.

Democrats be damned if that company will ever completely fail.

I think I'd spend my money on something else. The 9er is a good bike, but why have two?

I've got two, but for all the wrong reasons... Mainly 1 was percieved as dead, and I got a "good deal" on the 2nd. Though having a clock on the '04 is a "nice feature"

I want a Supermoto to go with my 919. The 919 is the most fun bike I have ever owned but... that SM thing opens up a whole new world.

I said the same thing then I wound up with 2 Kawasaki ZRX's. The 1100 turned into the cruiser and the 1200 wound up stretched/lowered and high 9 seconds.
At least they are not twins.
I also have a ZX14 so the problem with multiple bikes after the newness wears off is you have a favorite you ride all the time and the rest sit.

I went and bought a second 9er about 3 years ago. I bought it for a spare, just in case. Now I am doing a few mods to it and my fiancee rides it. I say if you really like it, go for it! IMO.

I reckon a Supersports or a YZF/WR, 3 bikes for me would be ideal. Treat the current 9'er right and give it to the kid who washes it the most!
