Sorry to hear about the chemo, Roadstar. That's a nasty battle, and good luck.

I'll kiss and make up too. Perhaps I was a little sharp.

(backstory starts....) long ago I once sold a toyota celica gt. It was ten years old, 100,000 miles....and it decent shape, for what it was. Five speed manual. Looked cool.

A month after I sold it the kid who bought it came to my apartment and told me the clutch went bad. He wanted me to pay for the repair. Even better was when I asked him if he even knew how to drive a clutch before he bought the thing. Nope, he said, but he still wanted money.

I told him to take a hike.

Kinda soured me on the idea of people coming back after a sale.

So, heal up. Get well...and good riding.

I greatly appreciate that, i`m doing good. As i have to go every other week for a 6 hour session (for 12 sessions) . Been out of work for 2 1/2 month`s (colon cancer) & i do get out & ride when i feel good. I`ll try & think real hard what i type before i do next time.
I see what your getting at with your sale, & that would put a bad taste in my mouth also.

Have a great day

My wife went through cancer treatment. Our three kids were little, it was a horrible time. But...she's doing well, healthy as can be...ten years past treatment...and here's to the same future for you.

Cheers,

Grab it

I found a 2004 ABS model with (get this) only 1800 miles.

Story goes that the guy who bought it got hurt (at work) and it sat in the garage for 7 years and then outside under a cover for another year.

A kid bought it, cleaned the rust out of the tank and replaced the fuel pump and realized the bike is too big for his taste.

He'll take $6500 for it. There is rust on the lip of the tank but nothing inside that I could see with a flashlight. There's also a thin layer of rust on the top of the shifter. Other than that the bike is immaculate and runs fabulously.

I figure I could put filter on the fuel line and get new tires - but I worry that there's some unseen damage from all the sitting around.

Any ideas what I should look for?

There's a part of me that likes the one with the miles that was ridden by someone who actually rides, knows the bike and took care of it.

Then there's the part of me that says "1800 MILES and ABS for $500 more!"

Like I said, conundrum.

Thanks again! I'm glad my buddy recommended this forum and I can't wait 'til I actually get a bike!
I just bought a 2004A for $7,000 and 45K. I would grab this one if it was available.
