True, but even the S52 version would be an awesome car to have. They're the only other BMW I'd consider trading my current car for. Plus, I've rarely been able to find even a non-///M coupe for under 10k in reasonable condition. I suspect there is a lot wrong with the one being offered in that CL posting.

Why do you want to get rid on your bike? Take it to Road America and enjoy it.

I just got 4 points off my license for speeding, insurance is way too high, and trackdays cost too much

I like the bike, but I also have a cruiser that I use way more often. Last year I put on over 6k miles with it, and only 800 with the 600rr..

Yeah, but I've got wheels and tires bigger than that on my riding mower! That's just silly...it looks like a go-kart with a car body set on top of it.

You're one of the few people that I've met who doesn't appreciate the awesomeness of the M coupe. I can understand why the design is polarizing though.
