Is that in Florida? I'd buy it if it weren't on the other side of the country.


I must retreat to my place of Zen and meditate on this.

I was just in contact with the seller...
           he is down to $1,200 !!  If I was only 500 miles away instead of
1,000 miles away IT WOULD BE MINE!!

When it comes to a decision like that, you really have to ask? It never ceases to amaze me how some people can't get their priorities straight.

Forget the damn house and go get that bike.

I get a bad vibe from that ad.  Someone with enough money to buy all of those addons, but uses the phrase "efen steel" as the purchasing tagline. 

$20 he bought all of the crap, and ran the engine itself into the ground, then shined it up for the ad after it had been sitting for a season or three in the garage because the clutch is fused or something.  Look at the rust on the tailpipe - none on the bottom like if it had happened while riding.  When you're talking over a thousand dollars it pays to spell properly.
All hail Sir Lucas, Prince of Darkness.

When an idiot thinks it's the same as not thinking at all!
