    Yeah, it was a winter project. I use them to give me something to do and learn new skills. I really like the bike, but it is not really my riding style. That said, if I didn't have my GS, this would not be a terrible only bike. It rides very well and runs great, plus gets a lot of attention.

    That’s it? After all the work you put in to it? That seems like a screaming good deal. A Dragon for $4500 - damn...

    It has 81K miles on it, and while it runs great, has new tires and full service, it is still a 5-10 foot bike. They go for that much in lower miles good condition.

    I appreciate the offer, but I am good. Unless you have a pop-up tent. I could use a couple more.

    Wow, that really came out nice. Use to own 2003 CL, and once took it up to lake Tahoe. Coming home on highway 88, with my wife on it also, that bike handled like it was on a rail.
