Have you checked into insurance?
Yeah, there's something special about these 1st gens. I paid cash for every bike I ever had, and only ever had liability insurance on them. I find it humorous that a few years ago when I bought Mrs. Bear the 2012 CBR1000RR, it's portion of the premium was higher than the 2005 ZX10R. A lot higher. Eventually it dropped down and was the same, and now it's lower. We are both insured for both bikes, no differentiation. No claims, no tickets, same riders, same policy, no changes except the bikes aging. Every bike I've put on that policy, the premium for it went down over time, but not my 10R. It was the first, it's been on there over a decade, and they still want the same money to insure it as they did the day I put it on...If it’s a 04/05 ZX10R, be careful.
