when you're comfortable riding, you can probably sell said beater-bike for what you paid for it.
Thanks for your advice and concern, but I am planning to invest my money to all kinds of crash bars instead of the another bike. And I donīt mind some scratches here and there ... it is GS after all :).

cheers mate

My 2010 ZX10R SE.

I've ridden this thing across the United States... I love it to death but I need something more comfortable for traveling. I made it happen though, with a bad back and a few times with injuries!
