    I NEED Help

    I have been given the GO Ahead to get one of these.......




    Problem is, If I get one now I gotta wait to get my new car till next year. My lease is up in May and might be more sensible anyway to wait since I get another raise in January.
    Any advice??? which one should I buy??????

    Wait for the car, then get the motor later.

    You didn't say if you had any other responsibilities, like a wife or kids???

    Now if you were retired like me, I would get the motor now and worry about the car later.

    Wait and get the car............you won't die as soon. 4 wheels beats 2 wheels anyday in the survival category.

    Yeah if he gets the motorcycle first, E_Lady can buy a better car with cash from the insurance payoff, and she won't have to lease it

    logically speaking, youd probably be better off getting the car first.... in my opinion though... the bike would be much more fun... Id say the bike in the top pic... idunno though... think about it for a while.

    I posted this somewhere else and got similar responses. One serious thought is the weather in the Pittsburgh area. We have had a great summer, not too hot and not as much rain. We get about 6 good months and a month or two of colder riding, then Nov. - March is out. One or two good weeks here and there in the winter. SOmeone asked about other responsibilities, yeah Wife,2 kids, 2 cars, 2 cats, hmm do i sense a trend xcept with the one wife If I get the car now, I cant get the exact model I want as I dont have any $$ for a down pay. If I wait till tax returns then the interest rate might be through the roof... Right now its about 6.5 for a new car...
    But I get a nice raise in Feb...
    Still thinking
