awesome should i stay or should i go

     

im holding a very edgy question in my heart right now... should i keep my bike, or, fix it up, and keep it and save up for something better later (that would take a few years until i get a job) but if i sell it it could jumpstart my way to a newer bike that i can make payments on because right now i could only (MAX) make 200$ a month... so any input?

IMHO, riding something is better than riding nothing.

Plus it helps you keep your sanity…….keep riding when you can.
The bigger, better stuff will come along if you work at it.

I'm with these guys, it may not be the shiniest bike out there but you can ride it and you own it right. I'd say keep it going and clean it up a little then once you have the money go for a nicer one.

You have a scoot with your bike. I would seriously keep it for now, fix what needs fixing and maintain it well. Learn to ride well and when you can afford a newer scoot then look into it. All the people above seem to be headed in this direction especially what Yzernie and Mainjet said; these guys are the men here I respect the most.

Semper Fi,
Bill
