    My 11 year old son has recently taken a liking to riding his little brother's TT-R 90, and I'd like to get him his own bike. We've sat on some 110's at a dealer and they seem a good fit.

    He has some sensory integration/autism spectrum challenges that make this venture pretty cool, yet also kind of challenging, so I'm looking for an electric start bike with an auto clutch, to keep things simpler for him.

    I'll pay a fair price for a fair deal and am willing to drive to make it happen. We're in the SW part of CO.

    Thanks!

    Anyone have some bicycle cases or bags for air travel? Looking to borrow/rent two of them in the next couple of weeks.

    When I've flown with bikes in the past I just go to a local bike store and get one of the shipping boxes they get bikes shipped to them in for free. They are a little bigger than the most travel specific cases, but the airlines charge the same and you don't have to do quite so much disassembly to get your bike in the box. On a trip to Hawaii once I was able to get two bikes in a single very large bike box and was only charged for one bike. It was VERY heavy however. Reenforce places like the corners, hand holes, and spots where the axles hit the box with duct tape.

    Hi all,
    I'm looking for some Wolfman or similar luggage racks as well as a larger tank, IMS (either size) or Safari doesn't really matter. Just working with a budget.
    Let me know what you've got.

    Anybody have a serviceable shock for a BMW K75? I am working on getting one back on the road that has been sitting for a few years and it appears the shock is shot.

    PM me if you have anything.

    anyone around Woodland Park have a ignition coil or CDI I could try out on my bike trying to figure out what is wrong before I spend a butt load of money on the wrong parts.

    I have one, a Hagon set up for a K100LT. It's a few years old but only a few thousand miles.

    Would a tank from an '02 400EXC work? Have one for an '04 450EXC too.

    I have a clarke that was on my 07 525 EXC. PM me if you're interested and I'll come up with a price once I give it a look. Would you want a petcock, rad shrouds and cap? I'm pretty sure it would come with an aluminum cap (Tusk?) that I have no other use for.

    Try the places that sell the used U Haul or Ryder rental trucks. Those trucks usually come with those ramps and a bunch of people have them removed. I think we used Rush Truck Center the last time we bought one. There is a location in Pueblo and one in Denver.

    I actually have a ramp from a moving van. It is about 2.5-3 ft wide and about 12 ft long. It is all aluminum and is fairly heavy. I haven't used it in a long time. Scrap value alone is probably a pretty good number. PM me if you are interested. I have no use anymore for it.

    I need a rear wheel that will fit a 2002 RFS, the one I have had a loose sprocket and the holes were slightly ovalized when I checked :cry
