    Here is the scoop on the $1000 GS. I was the lucky one to score the bike thanks to Matt Guzzi. The bike has a little over 15000 miles on it an has not been started for over two and half years. I put a new battery in it. Drained the gas tank. Changed the oil and filters. Pulled the injectors, had them cleaned. New plugs. Air in the tires. The bike now runs GREAT!! I will see you all on the road. See pic below.

    aaaahh.. youre the one. that bike was hot topic almost the instant that it hit graigslist. that afternoon there was movie night at barbs, and there were quite a few of us talking about it for a bit there... everyone was asking around checking to see if someone knew something about it or if someone had gotten emailed back about it. congrats.
    but akmud is right. i think we would all like to see some pics!

    This looks like the one that was crashed on the Dalton during the making of the movie "The Ride." Would have been about two and a half years ago....maybe the bike is a movie star.

    If this bike was in a crash, someone sure did an excellent job putting it back together.

    Nice bike. Check your oil. Sight glass looks down a bit..
    Get in touch with Dapman. He has a black tank that will make your bike look like new. He went with an adventure tank.
    Can't wait to see your new ride up close and in person.
