2005 Triumph Tiger 955i

Can anyone here comment on this bike? Is the minimal wind protection and seating position good for all day rides? Durability, issues, etc.? Thanks.

Looks like a non-ABS bike with heated grips, bottom dollar price is 4700. Seems like a decent deal even with 19K miles?

2004 BMW R1150R - 19K miles

Has anyone owned this year R1150R, any issues? What would one of these used with factory bags and a GIVI topcase sell for? Any input would be greatly appreciated.

2003 r1150 rt

Looking at one of these used with about 30K miles, any known issues? Fueling OK? Would it be better to wait for the right 2004? I hear the head changed. Any input would be very helpful. Thanks.

Suzuki GSX1250FA

Has anyone seen these bikes deeply discounted as of yet? Local dealers have leftover 2011 models at $8999.- From what I understand it is an evolved Bandit with a few upgrades.
