hard to beat that.

I think the air heads are cool too, but I do not think they have the same reliability as the oilhead bikes, and they are typically more expensive.

the oilheads are like 1984 corvettes, ugly and cheap.

There's an '05 1200GS for sale locally. Has a top box but no bags. $5K, 35K miles. Down side is it's got those dagnabit cast wheels instead of spokes.

Team- Navaho is already up there and I'm heading out due in by nightfall.

We're staying on Smith Mountain Road off of Hwy 7 south of Jasper, heading back to Baton Rouge on Sunday Morning.

Time to put the goats back on the rope and your daughters back in the cellar.

Post up or give me a ring if you want to cross paths for tall tales and foolish shenanigans. Tew Tew Feyve-Thre One Feyve- Thre Ate Ate Ate.

Good question, I will get back to you on that. Looking into insalling pedals on it.

My plan exactly. I have to go to Gentry at noon to do a presentation for United Way. I will take a leisurely ride on the country back-roads

Well, considering you've probably paid twice that in premiums over the life of the bike, I'd say it would be easy to sleep taking that much for it.

Man if I were offered 6K I'd be looking at the new Husky 650 Terra, seems like a great bike.

Gotta have something that the Missus can sling her cheeks across as well. her comfort probably factors more into this than mine.

I had a brisk commute on my BMW 650 variant today. The TR650 is getting a lot of good press and the dealers have to be pleased. I test rode a Yamaha WR250, last weekend for the first time. That bike is a blast to ride and relatively cheap to buy and own.

Just by chance, if any of y'all have an unneeded STOCK shock spring for this bike , I am a buyer. Or I can trade one I have which is for a 220-250 lb rider. Thanks.

Good Price! I paid a little more for mine last year but it only had 13,000 miles on it. I have the cast wheels, but I don't intend on taking it off road much so not a problem.

Would the front wheel off your old bike fit the front? If so you might be able to pick up a used rear wheel somewhere. I'd like to find a set and mount TC 80's on them just in case.......

Seems awful high...

Guess I'm not going to have a set just in case at that price.
