Default caravan parks

Camping facilities in Perthshire are a world in their own right, offering meandering scenery that is ideal for walking and cycling. There is endless beauty to be discovered around the remote shores of Scottish lochs and a vast assortment of Scottish glens that inspire and overwhelm one's sense of wonder. All this within reach of perfectly situated caravan parks!

Hi, I have done alot more searching and I'll b ready to purchase my bike over the next 2 weeks. The two I really have my eye on are the ZZR600 and the yamaha FZ6R.

My main question is if I purchase a motorcycle can I put my father as the primary or does he need to own the motorcycle? I have a quote saying that the insurance for both of us would be much less than for me alone. Just need to figure out the ownership.

You should PM Ace with that question. He is our resident Insurance bubba.

So I found a loop hole. Any bike made 1995 or older gets classified as a standard.

Today I went and put down a 500$ deposit on a 1993 ZX6E/ZZR600. (2500$ is total price)

The bike is getting new brake pads, new sprockets and a new chain before I take ownership from the dealership.

I wont be able to ride it till may when im 21 but I can store it till then.

I can still get a refund on the deposit during for the next week so I was wondering if any of the more experienced riders think this is a good deal or I should get my deposit back and go for something else?

I'm planning on putting down 200$ to have frame sliders put on if I go with the bike.

The bike is almost as old as you are. Unless it was sitting a garage for 15 years, it's probably worn out.

How many miles are on it? Is it from a factory dealership or a small shop? Will they give you any warranty at all?

You need to make some kind of 'warranty' part of the deal.

They should agree to cover any major mechanical or significant electrical failures for 30 days.

And I'd look it over really good for corrosion.

But, the saying Caveat Emptor should be heeded, even from a "Dealer".

Will they provide you with any kind of warranty?

Sorry this is probably a dumb question but what is a caveat emptor?

I will call them and find out about the warranty.
