I had it shipped to Washington state, so no California sales tax (nor Washington). As long as you ship out of state you do not have a pay taxes in the state you shipped from. You are lucky that you have no sales tax in Oregon.hunduc said:Tax rate in San Fran is what 8.25% ? so there is at least $1300 in taxes.
Anyways somewhere between $15500 and 17000
Unless you were able to ship th ebike out of the country I just noticed where you live

Yeah, that's kind what I was thinking. A lot of my friends have 1000's, and they would leave me in the dust on our runs to Death Valley and Valley of Fire. I would then be past them once we get to the twisties, too much maintenance costs with a Duc. Been there, done that. Maybe when I his the "Mega Bucks", then you can buy almost any bike and not care. Thanks.John said:For overall performance, realiability and price the GSXR hands down. In fact, this week you can get an 06 OTD at the Marin dealership for what I heard is the unbelievable price of $10,400.
The GSXR1000 will run pass the 999R for a third of the price and a fraction of maintenance costs.
If I was a lottery winner I would buy the 999R.
My buddies only smoke me on the straights, they like to hold the 1000's wide open for miles. I have a 750, with 147 RWHP but it's geared for the track. Therefore, my top end is limited to about 160 mph while they continue down the road at 170 or so. But once we are in the corners I usually leave most of them behind. The thing is with the new 1000's the guys that were at one time slower are faster now. I think the new 1000's make it easier for the average rider to go fast, be it maybe too fast for their own good. My question is will the 999R stay with the 1000's down the long straights and can it withstand prolonged stints at or near redline?Bodhi said:It is usually the rider not the bike that makes the difference. If your buddies can smoke you on a Gixxer 1000 vs a Duc 999 then they can probably smoke you on a Gixxer 600 or 750 too. If you can't afford a Ducati then by all means get one of the excellent and affordable rice burners. A Corvette is cheaper than a Ferrari. I guess it depends what you're looking for.:think:
