I would go to craigzoom.com. It's a craigslist consolidator and you can search for cragislist ads all over the country.
Thanks LarryGee, I tried the craigzoom, which I never used before. Saw some interesting bikes, most on the west coast
There's a great one in Seattle, for sale by a fellow ADV. rider, a bit of a drive from Upstate NY
$250 plane ticket but iffy this time of year for a fly and ride. And if I did storage, between that, airfare, and travel money back here, it kinda detracts from the good deal it currently is.
