Thank you truck6, I didn't think this damn thing was ever going to move...

Nice tag in Lenior too, somebody had better grab it pretty quick, or it's in for a road trip next week.

Great to see you tagging T6D. Where have you been hiding that sweet VMax? I'm really green with envy. I lusted after that bike all through the late 80's. Would love to find one that looks that nice today. Am I correct in thinking this is the Lenoir Co. tag up for grabs? First page hasn't been updated in a while.

Joe the tag Ray got was the Lee county one. Lenoir is the next one I'm pretty sure. Glad you were able to grab that tag after all Ray.


You got this via Crapatalk

Well I lusted after a V Max since 1988 when I first rode one. Could never really afford one but used my settlement check from my knee injury to buy this one. Now the irony of it all, my knee hurts every time I ride the thing. My knee helped me get it and it is my knee that is making me sell it. I posted it up for sale last week.


Yes it is the Lenior county TAG that is up for grabs. An easy find for anyone. If you like the civil war history there is alot in the area to look at.

I'm really sorry to hear that you have to sell it. Just curious how this bike makes your knee hurt vs. the others? Is it the width of the bike? Are you selling it here in ADV or only locally on CL? I couldn't afford to buy it off you but i can dream can't I?

Leg position and foot location. Nighthawk did it too just not as bad. I need a bike with a longer distance of the seat to the pegs. If you get this way and I still have it you can take it out for a ride. It is a fun bike to play with. Acceleration makes you .

It's up on here in the Flea Market, Craigslist and the V Max forum web site. Lots of interest but no bites. Wrong time of the year to sell a bike.

Want to trade for my dad's vulcan???? It has the forward controls and my leg is almost straight when riding though I flatfoot it with bent knees at stoplights. It has a good bit of growl for a V twin. It's no Vmax but it is fun to ride. Could you convert the Vmax to forward control? At least throw some Highway pegs on for some knee relief. I hate to hear about having to sell because of ergos. PM me the link to your craigslist post so I can drool.

I am looking at the Versys. A Taller, narrower bike.

Joe,

I just don't like the longer cruiser bikes, never have. comfortable or not. Just personel preference. They have foward controls for the V Max but it is very pricey. I will send you the Flea Market link. It has more pictures than the CL link.

Well sorry, they make my hands and wrist hurt (nerve damage).

Lets face it guys I'm a work out broken down POS. I'm destined to be on a Goldwing before it is all over with.

I would have gotten trouble with it anyway.

A little late there with my post but you got the right spot. The stump next to the fire ring was a dead give away.

Nice grabbing...can't believe there was a bruce on that one.

No two wheels for me out here on Guam yet but I'm getting 4 wheels today ---> they are giving me a Mule to drive through the jungles. Uh oh

Have 2 rivers, a swamp, and some mountains to cross to get to where we are working.

I'll post a few pics soon.
