With a heavy heart I post this. I'm selling my Yamaha blue r3 with 2k miles. I'm expecting twins and could use the money for a suv down payment. It's got the Yamaha extended warranty and has been serviced like a baby. I'm in Miami. 3057676711.4500k with all my gear : (

See! This is what happens when you procreate - you have to get rid of all your cool toys (Been there, so I can empathize). Congrats on TWINS - double the fun. You're making the right choice - you can always get another bike later. Post up details on the gear you mention. Good luck with those young-uns.

Indeed! No minivans. Ever! Congrats on the twins!

Make it work ,man. You only live once, and you'll likely regret it. Heck, you have to do what you have to do. But there is always a way.

I am partial to manual transmission (I detest automatic, DCC, and paddles) so I am lmited oni choices, which are actually good-Golf R, Mini Cooper S Paceman/Coutryman All4, Subaru WRX/STI, or Ford Focus RS. The first will likely be my next car).

Anyway, getting off-topic. It's not like it's a $20,000 Ducati! Like the huge number of motorcycle categories out there as never before, there are wonderful new categories of cars blurring the lines between types like SUVs and Crossovers. I see so many behemoth vehicles like Tahoes, Suburbans out on the road driven by the most incompetent drivers. New Crossovers like the Honda HRV, Mini Cooper Countryman, etc are safe, roomy, fuel efficient, and well-rounded.

I'm not telling you what to do, but hey, just trying to be positive, and maybe, .just keep you among the Yamaha and R3 brotherhood.

Again, congrats on the twins! Wish I could buy it, add it to my Raven, and make it my race bike. Bike can't do it at the moment. :) Good luck with everything!

Congrats on the twins. If they are you first, I will say kids are tons of fun, not to mention a never ending cycle of learning.

Oh the pitter patter of (four) little feet. Congratulations on the twins and sorry you have to let the toy go. Like Stirz said, you can always do another bike some other day. Your children will be yours forever. Used to ride before marriage and child, maybe 30 years ago. Mine, he turned 21 this past June and that some day has come for me.

Best of luck on the sale and best wishes for your family.

Congratz on the twins, too bad you gotta get rid of the bike though.
We're also expecting our first in June and wife has hinted few times that I'll be getting rid of the bike now that a kid is on the way :)
