hey everyone. my wife has had a 7r for almost 2 years now. ive been on here a bunch of time fighting with the carbs, and i finally understand them better and got the bike straightened out. got to try it out a week ago and it was great, worked awesome. now ive had this bike for sale for the past few months and friday night we sold it. now i wasnt really upset to see it leave...but how it left was pretty heart breaking. 3 people from boston drove 6 hours to my house to get this bike. now if you put the 3 together they might have enough bike knowledge to tell the difference from a car and a harley. the one that bought it was an 80 lbs 4'11'' girl that has never rode a bike before. the only reason she wanted it was, it was pearl white and pink. now i already felt kinda bad that she was gonna reck the bike trying to ride it, but the sale had to go on. when it came time to load the bike up...we loaded it into a dodge caravan! thats not that bad part...ive seen it before and it can be done...the right way. now we had to tip the bike over a bit to clear the trunk lid. as we started to do this, the bottom fairing starts to hit the trunk latch...so i told everyone to stop before we damage it...the girls "boyfriend" say "fuck it it'll go just shove it in"...so be fore i could stop everyone else...the bike gets split open like a tin can. i the process of this it breaks both side fairings in roughly 8 places...broke the inner fairing broke the cooling fins from the oil pan...and dented the bottom of the exhaust. once the bike was inside the van...they treated it like a huffy..and just let it fall over. as much trouble i had with that bike...its hard to see it be treated like ah walmart shopping cart. but there is a bright side to it all, yesterday we picked up my wifes new bike. an 03 z1000 with 14k miles on it. all stock for $3300. dealer serviced it entire life. has new battleaxe tires...an undertail the solo seat and factory back seat. its the factory orange. we're ordering danmoto carbon slip ons and a pc3 tomorrow for it! i thought id share this with everyone!!
