Posting per the guidelines, so I might as well explain how I came up my new "to me" bike.

I recently purchased an used 07 Speed 3, a deal I couldn't pass up.

My wife and I decided last year I could upgrade from my SV650S once she finally got a new car. Well the time came and we were able to trade in the car she received 10 years ago on her 16th birthday for a new car. So that meant my time had come and with the baby on the way I had better make the purchase fast before the next 18 years of my income go into supporting someone else.

I had planned on getting a street but when I saw the add for an 07 speed with only 3000 miles on it I had to check it out for myself.

After meeting the guy and seeing he had saved every maintenance receipt, every reflector, every sticker that came with the purchase it was obvious he had babied the bike. So I made my offer and had the bike in my garage that evening.

It's only been one week and 300 miles but I can see why there are so many happy Speed owners on here. I've been ecstatic after every ride and I can't wait till work is over each day so I can ride home.
