SOLD. Thanks for the kind words all!
This Bird was purchased new in July of 2001, and spent the first twelve years of its life with my father who set it up to be an exceptional sport-tourer and meticulously maintained it as a second, or sometimes third, motorcycle. In the Spring of 2013, it then made the move out to Chicago to live with me, where I’ve since used it to get my first Iron Butt Association certificate and take a number of great rides around the Midwest. She's never been raced or abused, runs flawlessly, and is simply a great motorcycle. In a perfect world I’d keep it forever, but I only have the space and the budget for one motorcycle, and I’ve decided a Triumph Tiger 800XC is a just better fit for the city jaunts that make up the bulk of my riding.

Exterior Overall, the paint and plastic is in very good condition, and the Bird is cleaned after every ride. There are small scuffs on the right side of the front fender and the right bar-end from a tip-over in 2013—these are visible in the pictures, but I'm willing to provide close-ups upon request.
