The one in Lander has 20+K miles and it's the highest price at $5K. It does have hard luggage (looks like Gold Wing sourced items) and windshield, stuff that's useless to me. Thus far no clear dog.

I'll need a new battery for my '88 NX come riding weather. What's the consensus out there as to the best, longest lasting, sealed battery. I'm getting tired of replacing mine every 2-3 years.

Allstate 125

did you look at the little red Allstate? I've been thinking that it's probably my size and it reminds me of my high-school days when two strokes roamed the Rockies. seems a little pricey though.
