Looks pretty nice. I had one a while back, decent bikes. If it was close to me I'd be pretty tempted.

That v-twin sounds fantastic on these.  I rode one for a bit, they're excellent bikes.

Its in my state. I have the cash. I always wanted one. 

But. I totaled my motorcycle two weeks ago and the other people in my life might not be too happy about this.

If it is as nice as it looks, that will not be around when I can take a vacation to get uo that far. So tell the family you are buying and holding it for a GRM'er, and it's not for you. Then You are welcome to ride it anytime the family will let ya till come get it!!! Y'all's ridin' season might be about up by that time.blush

I was tempted too, to buy it, clean carbs, do maintenance, and resell it. I'm out of work because of my accident right now, so way too much time being spent looking at things to buy.

What if I hired you to clean the carbs after I buy it?

Appleseed can prolly get money to you sooner than me, but I was thinkin' the same thing. IF you were interested in some crazy plan like that.

Apparently the bike accident was fairly recent; at least your still kicking'!

Sounds like it was a bad scene, though.

Sorry, I missed out on the SV650. I hesistated too much. 

Sold the Astro a few years ago. Gotta update the profile. Now I just have a 2006 E450 short bus (home), 2012 MINI Cooper S, 2011 VW Touareg, 1990 Miata, 1997 Audi A4, and 2002 Ford F150... Need more space to store more...
