The never see you and the wind they displace, displaces you off the road anyway, about insurance I had a nightmare too initially it was 2grand for a year comprehensive, then after 6 months I got liability and then a miracle happened. I came across State-Farm Insurance. They're a boon to bikers. It costs me lesser to comprehensively insure my bike with state-farm than minimal liability insurance with Geico. It costs 400$ for 6months with State-Farm. They make you take 12months min. though and if you're new with them then or have not owned a car for more than 2 years then you need to insure your car with them too but who cares, its so cheap. I almost fell in love with that aunty who gave me the quote. Tears rolled down my eyes, the world was once again a beautiful place .... okk thats enuf of bs from me .
I enquired with all major insurance guys like Geico, Progressive bla bla about a brand new Suzuki GSX1000R, K6 and they all quoted me 6000USD for a year comprehensive for a bike that costs 11K. ***....
I look forward to owning the GSX next year only because State Farm.
p.s. dam this is a state-farm advert. LOL
You definitely should own one, if you want to convince your wife about the motorcycle, my serious suggestion is that you rent a cruiser one day and take your wife for a spin on the bike on a lone country road one-day. She'll enjoy the ride definitely and then you can buy watever you want, cruiser sports bike or whatever. Dam, this reply has become like a big essay. :P anyway I love that corvette man, and even more the G35, was wondering if its 6-spd manual ?
Looking forward to the US meet at indy.

Hmm thats very interesting..

because of the suspension which was due to 3 speeding tickets in a matter of a weekend long long time ago i pay about 1600$ for 6 months full (min state levele coverage) on the 2 cars..

man on the G35..it was love at first sight, it was up on the dealer lot on a platform where they keep their most desirable car, its a 2003, so no mannual, they didnt have one then and i had to have the car..today i saw my wife leave with it and boy it just looked stunning and btw i was standin next to the vette...but vette is just an awesome awesome car too(just like JC says, its far better than most ppl think), words cant describe what you get(you give up on very little too as compared to a porsche)..oh well now until my next target

Nice one, jkdas.
BTW guys, does it not look more like the gals wondering where from this flash of brown came in a sea of white ? Just kidding, buddy. As they say in the movie H'bad blues, "Dil pe mat le yaar, ........". Can't complete that dialog due to obvious reasons.

Are we ? If so, that sounds like great news.
But from what I saw during my brief visits and as per my friends in the West the pecking order in decreasing preference is something like black / white, yellow and finally brown.
Your statement about "envying blacks" itself makes it clear.
