    Cant decide if its a good deal or a money pit but aren't they all ? But un-chopped bikes are getting hard to find . If it has not sold by mid week I might go take a look at it.

    My friend Mark just upgraded his Wing from an 05 to a 12. He's selling his old one for the reduced price of $6,499-- the dealer just went through it and replaced parts and has it on their floor though it's still his bike. 105,xxx miles and many many more to go.

    I sent a PM, a Text, and replied above. No response(s) to any of them. CL posting is gone, so I guess it's been sold.

    Too bad...I would have loved to have seen it.

    They are worth it. I love mine, other than the requirement for 90+ octane.
