    Default New motor - which one shall I choose

    Mornin!

    Currently, I am paying off some debts (those that have stumbled across my website will know about my Virgin Money saga).

    To help me financially I sold my Bandit, which means I am bikeless (typically it has been sunny every weekend since).

    I was hoping to clear my debts by next summer, and possibly buy a new Yamaha R1 (as the new model will be released by then).

    But, I also would like a VXR. I currently have the Veccy SRi CDTi 150.

    So, the first question is, shall I buy a bike or car. The second question is Astra VXR or Vectra VXR?

    I did want to try a smaller car (but still fast) but if the Veccy has more toys etc then maybe I could go for that. Plus a V6 would be nice I guess, albeit higher service costs?

    Any comments would be welcome. Thanking you good sirs.

    I don't know about your finances but it seams your short. I apologise if i'm wrong.
    I would leave the bike as really you don't need one.
    If you need transport I'd go for a practical motor and something that you can afford.
    vxr astra or veccy are very nice but cost a lot to run maintain tax and insure.
    You yourself can make the right decision.
    If their is nothing at all wrong with the veccy sri 1.9 keep it and build your finances back up.

    Got to agree keep your car and build the finances back up. Advice you don't want to hear but it's the sensible choice. Once you out of the black you can start to save up for a bike.

    I'm cramming the overtime in at the moment in a bid to sort the debt out. Wont take too long, so should be in a much better position come spring time, which is when I was thinking of buying something.

    I clicked on the link to the pics of your Siggy Andy, but the site is down.

    Thanks for all your thoughts guys.
