I've got a line on one in like new shape with a few thousand miles for less then $4000..... but it is green :(
Just shoot the green with some spray on bedliner.

That'll make it "man up" and give it a tough street fighter look.

Rhino Liner and some ADV stickers would be even better!

Manganos,
This would keep you out of trouble, and very busy, for a while...

Two sides painted, first coat. Catch the other two tomorrow.



And every bench need a vise:


And every garage needs one of these:


Donated to the cause by my boss.

Me thinks I'm really beginning to like this guy.

Wow, Guy. That is looking fantastic.

But your Craigslist Ad says...

"It is gonna get me in trouble ;)

So what am I asking for this wonderful bike?

$4200 OR trade for a KTM AdventureR , Triumph Tiger, Kawasaki Versys, Suzuki V-strom 650, Something I can put some cases on and travel a few hours up to the mountains and camp. Something that isn't going to loft the wheel in 3rd gear just because I stretch my hand. You get the idea, try me I might just want it as I have motorcycle attention disorder."

I vote for the KTM ADV or the Duc MAD for sure...

Hey Guy,

Great looking garage! Enjoy the sparseness while you can!!
This is what it could look like in less than a year (it did for mine). Missing from the pic is the other side with 3 add'l bikes and the Fridge

Cool, I was torn between the Versys and the Wee. The GF pointed out the differences in the seat (IE that there was no way she would ride on the little seat on the versys) and that made my decision.


Booni, I agree the Wee does not wheelie but so easily, it could be the big tank and all the tupperware weighing down the front. Of course, I'd never trade the ugly headlights for anything. I can see at night.

I am. Looks like I have a lot to look forward to.

Now, if I could only get the danged lumber company to come by and pick up the extra stuff, I'd enjoy a little more clear floor space - for awhile anyway.
