Observe the handguards that some kind soul sent me a few years back.

I will never sell that bike. It fits me too well. And that money i shelled out on the Wilbers shock was well worth it. She now has half the suspension to suit the engine that once semi-impressed this BMW salesguy i know. Forks are next when i have some cash.

Any reason that I should not buy a 2006 T100 with 14,000 miles on it? Any thing that I should look for? Thanks in advance for the assistance.

None. As long as it's been maintained, you're good to go.

The only thing i'd look over twice would be the spokes.

I've seen a couple of those in that vintage over 60,000 and ticking along like champs.

Love this bike. Once I get the forks squared away, it will be perfect.

Keep in mind the 06 was the last 790cc and the 07-08 were the only carb'ed 865cc; 09 starts the EFI 865cc.

In case you wanted the 865 or EFI...

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. What is up with the spokes? Tightening, corrosion?
