picking up bikes
« on: October 09, 2008, 12:16:44 PM »
I have a feeling that the market will be flooded with bikes that don't get ridden much very soon.

Time for most to raise some cash.

ya... there are some screaming deals out there already...

there are bargins to be had in the liter bike class... AND they get comparable gas mileage to the Vision.. 40/45
although for some starnge reason, my last two tanks gave me 50+mpg ???

near me: 2001 FZ1... showroom condition, 4200 miles, $4200  :o

Saw an 08 Ninja 500R at my local Yamaha dealer for $3900.00.  Had less than 1000 miles on it.
