Here is a link to my XX.  $3750 was a starting point to feed the tire kickers.  $3K for a forum member. Have a Yosh Carbon can in the attic which can replace the polished aluminum. Also have tons of extras not listed, which could go with it for a local sale.  Not interested in parting it out yet, (i.e. returning to stock) and selling parts and having to ship stuff.  Also really no desire to sell it, just listed it to placate the wife as I just bought a Rubicon.  Sold my Concours, Cherokee, and Suburban I think I've done my part. Thanks for not looking at my half ass Craig's List ad. 😛

You should have posted it here only and you could have told her that you have it up for sale, wink, wink.  It sure looks good and I'm glad that I don't have any room in my garage.  You know that you really should keep it, right?

Thanks. I had it up on CL for $4K, and received a trade offer for KTM990, but the guy wanted me to give him $4-5K on top, and sounded kind of nuts. She checked the ad and suggested I lower the price to $3750.

MOST  of the KTM guys around here are nuts. 

 

I think you should hang onto that bike.  Once I retire, I'll want to travel a bit, and you having a spare bike on the west coast would be a big help.  And I like the color.

I thought I was giving it away too early with the photo, and funny that one of the few members who's been here and seen it was the first to chime in.

Mine is a custom white as well, prior owner was a painter at a body shop, it has blue glass in the white in it that really pops in the sunlight. Graphics have a carbon fiber weave in them, which is almost impossible to capture with my poor photography skills.

I'd love to see that in person. 

 

Oscar's has that luster, like the paint is so deep.

 

Mine was VFR pearl white before the mud, tar, road scrapes, heel scrapes, tipping over in the garage cracks, ankle deep in gravel horizontal scratches, and falling off the lift table cosmetic upgrade.  Cripes, is my name Philip?

Mine's "Lamborghini Balloon White".  From my understanding it's a multi layer job with metallic white with a pearl clear, and I think it starts with a silver base.  Tho I like white vehicles, white's usually nothing to get excited about.  The moment I saw a Lambo in that color I thought 'that is the best white in the world'.  When the bike came up for sale I jumped.  Unfortunately it wasn't done right and it has many flaws, but it's a good 10 footer.

 

I can't tell that Tim's is anything but 'normal' white with standard graphics.  Taking the pics in sunlight might bring them out.  A close-up of the paint/graphics and noting them in the ad might do it wonders.

I have some joker claiming her wants to come buy it tomorrow. I doubt he shows. CL flakes. I track CL regularly, okay daily. My old 2001 XX sold earlier this year for $5500, new owner is now willing to take $2800, but needs a beating for the horrible stickers!

Another Bird owner bites the dust.

I will be back. It was my 4th Bird. I intentionally pulled off my custom clutch and break reservoirs for my next bird!
