    starting to feel that we should pool $500 or so, buy some IA/IL shitheap, title it in mules name as a rally planning 'gift'.

    2015 Honda Gold Wing

    I have got a Honda Gold wing in excellent condition for sale. I am trying to sell to step up to a slightly faster motorbike.

    It's been storage kept, therefore it's looking sleek and there's really no damage on the original paint, which you could see in person if you wish to. The motorbike runs great without having any problems in any way. I use it everyday to commute and I also will not offer a person a motorcycle that was not safe to ride from the very beginning. The miles are gradually climbing so if you're interested in a clean, nice looking, torque-y naked motorbike, your search is over. This one is ready to be yours!

    There's a theory that some of the email scammers intentionally use bad Grammer and make no sense in their messages to weed out the smart people.

    Gotta say, I do less and less looking in CL every day. I think @argentcorvid might be onto something.

    Cool name BTW. Does it have something to do with large, black birds?

    No title and it's not running because it's missing vital parts (like a carb). The CL350's have value only if they have good original mufflers and side panels. This example has neither - and he turned down $400 for it.

    Yeah, someone is an idiot. If the pipes were in good shape, I'd offer him $200-$300. As it is? $100 maybe?

    You're probably right. A slow head shake does resemble a head turning.
