It just seems that way.  I've actually been watching Craigslist ads for quite some time.  I think used XX's are probably one of the best deals on the market out there right now.  When you consider that there is not much difference between a used one with ten or fifteen thousand miles on it and a new one, other than a few minor scratches.

It took a little foresight to create that hindsight.

When I was checking up on Zero’s bik today the service manager said there was a local guy selling his 300 hp turbo bird but is not putting it on CL or anything. This guy is a mechanical engineer and wants it to go to someone who can “appreciate” a bike of that caliber.

Well, after taliking to the guy again today, I am sorry to inform you he thinks his friend won’t sell it to just anybody. 

 

I started to tell him who your brother is, but I didn’t think it appropriate to call out the big guns. Yet.

The ZX-14 didn't excite me either until I rode one.

 


Do it, or a Connie.A Concours is plenty fast to keep things interesting and much more comfy.
