Hardest decision ever! Help :)

So I can not make up my mind to save my life. I've come up with 3 ideas and can only do one at the moment.
First idea is to completely build my 03 gt. Motor, trans, rear, suspension etc.
Second idea is to get either an R1 R6 or gsxr1000 and put my build plan for the gt on hold.
Third idea is to sale my gt and get either a Mach or termi.

What direction would you go with this??
Thanks in advance!

Depends how attached to your GT you are. By the look so it... not too attached lol. That being said, I'm a huge Terminator fan! They're easily one of my most favorite Mustangs of all time.

I vote Termi!

It's not that I don't love my car, if i sell its more then likely going to be to a buddy of mine thats been hassling me to sell it to him since I got it. That way i can slap him if he does something stupid to it lol, ooooor give him ideas and buy it back in the future

If this would be your first bike, I vote Cobra.

If you have ridden before, bike.

As long as you still have a reliable car get a bike. Just rely on your only transportation being a bike. I love my bike but I far from want to ride it every day. Plus the terminator is awesome. I would just go with that. Plus the only time in my opinion you Should get a bike is if you have money sitting there to use.

2&3 bikes aren't very expensive so you could get a bike, sell your GT and get a Termi

So despite everyone (nearly) voting termi, I decided to keep my car and build it AND get a bike . Figured I'd have fun with my gt for awhile longer and see what I can do with it... Main reason being some guy went into work a few days ago and was talking trash on the 2v's that lit a fire inside me... Damn f-body owners -.-

Anyway, thanks for everyones input

Good to hear you are keeping the Mustang. Keep us posted as to what parts you are putting on the Mustang. Should be a fun build.

Get a bike lol. I love my Mustang to death, but I have more fun on my bike, then I ever have in ANY car.
However, DO NOT, get ANY 1000cc if it is your first bike. Start on an older 600. My first bike was a CBR F4i, then uograded to a CBR600R, then to an 04 R1, and finally bought my 09 R1 brand new in 2010. Here's my baby.

I never rode a bike but like evil said better to start of on 600. But I've heard about guys jumping on 1000 thinking they the king of the road and ended up messing themselves up pretty badly

Thanks man i appreciate it. It's a blast. Still have my 04 R1 as well, which i use mainly for the track now. I definitely recommend getting a Yamaha or Honda. I personally hate gsxrs and ninjas. Whatever you do, dont buy new your first time, because I can almost guarantee you, you're gonna mess something up at some point lol.

Agreed. A 1000, or hell, even a NEWER 600 is WAY to much power for any first time rider. I dont care how responsible you are. Until you learn to ride on the street with surrounding traffic, and how to be aware of your surroundings 110% of the time, the power and throttle of a 1000 is WAY to unforgiving. One little misplaced blip of the wrist going around a turn, and boom, you lowside.

If you do not have at least 5 year on a smaller sport bike stay away from the liter bikes. My suggestion, get the Termi or Mach.

Nice, sounds like a good find and low miles for a 10 year old vehicle.
