Trade for a Street Bike

I have a great 17 year old son who is leaving to join the Navy in August and would like to have a street bike to go with him. On his radar is something along the lines of a Buell Blast or GS500.

Well, to be honest, on his radar is a Buell XB12R, but we're not gonna go there

What we have to trade is a 1997 DR350 (13,300 miles to go up a little here and there with the weather) and an 1983 XR200 (sitting in a barn right now).

As a former Marine, please heed my advice: wait until he has a permanent duty station. It's not going to do a lot of good to ave the street bike unless it's to ride between now and when he leaves. Shipping stuff in the fleet is a pain in the ass and won't endear him to his (navy equivalent of a platoon sergeant).

God luck to him. Hope he chose a good rate.

yeah, he probably won't even be allowed to own a vehicle until he is at least partway through his A school, maybe even later. 8 weeks of boot camp puts graduation sometime in October. Then, unless he's in one of the 'advanced' programs, like Nuclear Power or Intelligence, etc, he will have some more time across the street at Great Lakes Training Command, and I don't know how they handle vehicles there. I was a Nuke, and we weren't allowed to have vehicles on base during school until we were quite a ways through ('A' school for us was way longer than most, though).

Thanks in advance to your son for his service!

If you get down near Milwaukee WI and want to sell that DR outright, drop me a PM.

When you give us so little we can work with in public, you have to run with it.
