Do I really WANT a fast Airhead?

Theres a guy here who has had his R90/6 for sale for a while. I have a sixth sense that I get a certain "feeling" that a bike I see for sale will be mine someday....and I have it in spades on this one. Same happened the first time I saw the R100RS, and the R60/5, my Range rover and my Dinan M535i. oh, the Husky and ZRX too....anyway I digress. This thing is for sale for under 3k, looks pretty good, he says it runs strong but sokes a "little". I figured if I can get him down to 2k or less, i have an R90 I can trick out. PLEASE talk me out of this!

I sense you will soon be entertaining us with pics of a certain R90/6 that's been begging for your attention.







When do we get to the 'fast' part?

Don't worry cause it's not really fast.

Bigger issue will be stopping fast

I'll just make sure I only gun it where I can see a long way....for the stopping part. Of course, in my opinion, a tricked out bike also means brakes and suspension........not just an all motor monster with a Hinge and a bad stopping problem...
