I like this one...

....I am a motorcycle mechanic, but can't seem to figure out how to put together this motorcycle. But you are lucky lucky, because if I did put it together (which I won't, you know, no time - that old chestnut), It'd cost you three grand, but for half that, back your truck on up here and let me fill it with CB750 parts which, when put together (by someone, not me) may or may not be a motorcycle.

Wow...

I'll take $9599.00 for my 530 and $16588.00 for my 950SE.

No test rides, cash only. These bikes wheelie in all 12 gears.

And no trades, and I will not sell to a Texan either, or a TEA party member.

Need cash fast. My new quad is at the dealership waiting for me.

Rode this bike at the badlands, worked just fine. Still, bit of a high price but of course people are gonna lowball so it'll probably go for 700 bucks.

Also, this thing is actually maintained which is a nice departure from the other 1k and under bikes I've been party to (see also: dt175, it400, yz125)

Now looky here GQ. I like you. But this guy, just by being your friend; it doesn't necessarily raise his status that much, if at all.

And the cool things about that bike, like he said, long gone. So he only has a 32 year old four stroke with no title.

Fair enough. Couldn't sit and watch him get bashed without standing up for him, because that's what friends do. I'd do the same for your crotchety husk.

Big Bore, I'm 100% in your court! But I just pass it off as being a Craigs List thing. It seems to be a place where guys can be totally unrealistic about something and feel good about it.

But as with most things, at times there seems to be uneducated(stupid) buyers for some of this stuff.
It's crazy.

I was thinking about putting my GSA up for sale. Thought I'd ask $30k. After all it has Alaska experience.

I usually just lurk here and don't say much, just like to read the words of wisdom. But I had to say that bigborefan was really making me laugh with the craigslist comments. Some funny stuff.

Weather is suppose to be nice sunday anybody doing any riding? Would like to get the VStrom out and go for a ride.

Clymer manuals

So most of you folks don't need no stinking books to work on them cycles but.
2 Yamaha Clymers are in flea market. I see some "vintage" bikes ripping on this thread. In all kinds of shitty weather too. Pretty cool stuff.

I sent ya a PM with our calendar, easier to keep track of us that way haha.


And i'm glad my fame is expanding. After this Sunday, I think I'll be the talk of the town.


Sorted out the forks and the number plates, among other things last night. Sorry for the crappy pic, it was late the garage sodas were flowing.

^^ Looks good, very GQ.

I'd drop that tail light for the race, just to save the parts.

That course you guys are going to be riding looks pretty sweet as well.
