They are asking $3600 and don't seem to inclined to move. When I presented NADA values they replied that that's merely a guide.

If their song changes, I'll post a link to the bike.

Dang, is it low mileage in mint condition? Different market and all but I paid just $5800 for my 2005 TDM900A, complete with Ohlins suspension, heated grips, titanium exhaust, Givi rear carrier, etc...

I'd ask them if they're high but I think I already know the answer...

Maybe I misspoke. I assumed the USA, so we would be talking 1992,93 models.

Carpe is a great forum for sure Would not have got Avon Azuras otherwise, saved me money, and I reckon they are better in the wet than the old MEZ6 tyres.

My fuel consumption is getting bad. Maybe I should do the emulsion tubes whilst the engine is out for the big stripdown. New rings may also be good for Kyoto I think....

Come on back! Things are changing rapidly, and there's a thread on Spain running at the moment you might want to use as an excuse to chip in.

Sitting position...

...hi everyone,
A recent TDM owner and Im having problems w/ the sitting position. I'm streching to reach the handlebars and it gets tiresome when filtering in town. I use the bike every day for commuting. It appears to me that it would be best if the handlebar was an inch closer to me. Any ideas as how to modify it? Try a different handlebar maybe?

I found some comfort in just adjusting the bars but am currently lookng for some other bars. Preferrably something with a crossbar.
