$7000-7500 for a new GSX-S1000 or F makes it a bike in it's own category. I would feel 10 times better only having to spend that kind of money instead of $12k for a new N1K. I wouldn't mind modifying the bike some at that price. I sent in an email to Ride Now in Gainesville FL about one they have listed at $7700 and received the same ol salesman bulltalk about needing me to call or come by. I told him I lived in North Carolina and just wanted to know the OTD price. Knew there was a catch and I've read that about Ride Now. Looks like they're spreading across the US.
