I know! I talked to the guy on a Friday and got him down from 3800 to 3000 and then gave him the cash the next day before he could change his mind. Oh, and he even delivered it. Probably best deal that I'll have in my lifetime. ;)

I almost bought the bike that Mikef5000 now has for 3500 earlier that same week but I'm glad I walked away from that deal because I found a better one. ;)

You stole yours for sure!

My main concern with the ad is who in their right friggen mind would purposely make a bike they are selling unridable? It sounds to me like he is trying to hide something. Maybe it is missing 2nd gear or jumps out of 3rd? Scares me.

Reminds me of the old used car tricks like.."runs great, just has an exhaust manifold leak" Rightttt, it also masks the slight rod knock. lol

I would wager that is James, the owner of the store. He used to be a cruiser rider but got a Strom 6 or 8 months ago. Nice guy,

Edit, looks like 2 others already said that. N/M

Well, by doG, if anyone sees one at that price, let me know! I'd be ready to buy that real quick!

Area Info

Greetings, Any Inmates have any information about the New Carlisle/Springfield area. Wife and I are looking to possibly relocate to a new area. She graduated from Springfield but that was long ago. Riding areas? Population Density? Crime? Traffic? Thanks in advance. Brian. Also might be selling my nice well kept 04 DL1000 V-Strom if anyone is getting the spring itch.

No I don't know anything about that area, but why would you leave that little slice of heaven you have now? I thought your place was really nice,and great location away from the masses.

Thanks, I thought the same when I picked it out on the internet in AZ. Now that we have lived there for 2Y's I would rather drive thru it than live thru it. Without being disrespectful to the local tribes and there heritage I find many to be unmotivated and feel they will continue to be unmotivated because they have made a living in doing so. In some ways much like the area I find myself in now. YMMV. I learn long ago if you are not having fun, make changes. That is what I am in the process of now. I will let you know when it go's on the market. "Make it Adventure Ohio Clubhouse South"

I live in Tipp City so I can tell you New Carlisle is very rural and has little to no issues in the areas you are asking about.

I would stay away from living in Springfield especially if you have school age kids.

You are moving to the flattest part of the state. I trailer my DS bike to where I'm riding and just plan on getting out of the area as quick as I can when I'm riding my street rides.

Good luck.

Does not compute. Taking the fun way home would take two days. Making time requires interstate.

To be honest, my suggested route for those two points would have you not going through Ohio at all.....
