    I'm looking at a cheap 1996 duke in non running condition. 9k miles on the odo and appears to be in very good condition from the pictures. Should I go for it?

    There is a cheap 1996 duke nearby in non-running condition. Appears to be in good condition from pictures. Should I go for it or run?

    This was a very fun bike with a fantastic exhaust note!
    I sold it to put a good suspension and bumper on my FJ last year. As the buyer rode away I knew I would regret it.
    Love the FJ now that it's pimped a bit but wish I still had the Duke. Although it did jiggle the nibblies like no other bike I have ever been on. But it would carve up a twisty like nothing else too...

    bringing an old thread back to life, I sold my v-strom and bought a '96 Duke this weekend. This is going to be my daily commuter for increasing hooliganism and making the work commute much more fun. So far, been through 3 tank fulls (all 9 gallons, ha!) and loving every minute of this bike. Previous owner put Dunlop Sportmax Q2 tires on it, which I'm not such a fan of, especially on wet roads full of fallen leaves. I plan to ride this until it dies, or I die, whichever comes first.

    Next up is to look for a proper dual-sport bike for dirt/street long-haul adv riding.

    A 2000 Duke II showed up localy for sale. Cheap.
    What should I look for on these bikes? I've always wanted a supermoto, but know nothing about this bike.
    What's the service interval?
    Any weaknesses/strenghts?
