Rocky Mountain Most Wanted

This is a thread for wanted to buy, motorcycle related items.

Rockies has threads for flea market and craigslist finds, now you can post up if you're looking to buy something in particular. Perhaps an inmate has exactly that item and might be willing to make you a deal?

Post up your Wanted to Buys (WTB) here.

WTB: Hitch Carrier

I'll start. I'm looking for a good quality 2" receiver hitch carrier. Prefer Joe Hauler or equivalent quality, not interested in the Harbor Freight model. It's for my WR.



AGREED TO BUY, PICKING UP SHORTLY

WTB: Motorcycle Lift

I'm also in the market for a good motorcycle lift. I'm tired of doing regular maintenance without one.

The Craftsman for $120 seems like a decent deal, but I'd rather buy a used one.

I'm not looking for the big, expensive pro lifts. Something more like this one...

My son is shopping for a dual sport in the 400-550 CC range.

Looking for an SE or possibly an ADV.

I am going to look at the two SEs on CL, and am considering one on the East Coast.

Thanks

A 650 KLR in good shape, around $3,000 or so, preferably in the Denver metro


A buddy is looking to buy and there are a couple on CL, but I'd rather buy from here instead if possible

I have one of these that you are welcome to if you are willing to store it. I don't really want to part with it completely because I do use it like once a year. So if I can borrow it back you can have it.

That sounds like a win-win! I'm in.

I think this is a review of the model I have: http://www.dirtrider.com/tests/parts...sport_carrier/

Wzd1a, I'll PM you. That sounds perfect!

The Harbor Freight one works great and is maybe $60 with the coupon in every motorcycle mag.

This is a great idea, Osprey.

Maybe when someone buys something they have posted as WTB, they should go back to their thread and state: "BOUGHT", so that persepctive sellers don't waste their time.

Buy on!

I use a johnny hauler w/ my Touareg. I bought it at Cabella's in GJ. It cost $60. Very sturdy although a bit on the heavy side. I'm hauling my KTM 530 on it.
