Opinions large and small, worth everything you pay for them.
Give the new Triumph Thunderbird a test drive and see what ya think.http://www.triumph.co.uk/usa/2010_NewThunderbird_Overview_2010Thunderbird.aspx
Old friend down the road....Heck man, that was quick. How'd you manage to unload, erh, I mean SELL that bike so fast?.
Now buy yourself a nice red Ducati 900.Or if you are of a more sedate mind, buy the Harley that you always wanted. You know you do, just submit to the cadence of the Hawg V twin music.I bought the Ducati and never regretted it. Not for a minute. You might buy the Hawg and never regret it.Right now is the good time to buy a bike, end of season. Go for it, you know you want it, you know you deserve it.I used the above rationale to buy over 40 motorcycles. I never regretted any of them.
Marty, Craigslist of all things; put up an ad and picture last night, within four hours had three inquiries and one of them bought it. And had another inquiry by the time I got home from taking care of the title.
And it'll have to be a used bike; looking around at new just about gave me a case of the vapors. I HATE looking at new vehicles; I never do until I need one, and I suffer sticker shock.And I have a clear conscience on the Vulcan, I had the problems listed in the ad, so they knew what they were getting. Except I just remembered I forgot to take the throttle lock off, dammit.
Craigslist of all things....Yeah, my son and his wife got rid of a sofa and loveseat recently posting on Craigslist. Those items left the premises quick too..And it'll have to be a used bike....Yeah I got a chuckle, or maybe it was a gasp, out of that link BigDick posted in his comment. 13 grand for a almost vertical twin? I know, I know, it's ~1600cc monster, but still? Wow! Sticker shock to the nth degree..
Son got me to go to the local BMW/Ducati dealer; BLEEP! Found a wonderful bike I liked, the base version is $14k. Ain't gonna happen.Local Triumph/Suzuki dealer has some nice bikes of both, including that Triumph; way out of reach.Roger, I can honestly say that since I was about 18 I have not wanted a Harley. Period.
Yep, just checked Craig's List Dallas for Vulcan Classics.At least five very low mileage ones there for 5K and under.
