    auction ended with zero bids, so i emailed him and said if he puts it up with a buy it now of $1100, i'd take it
    he emailed back and said yeah, just say when
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...tem=4646818818

    izzit worth that much anyway as far as the bike itself goes? (checked kbb and nada, and 1100 is a bit under that)

    :hsugh:

    looks like its in pretty good shape... Im a big Virago fan, but Im not huge on the pre-84 models. I like the teardrop gas tank too much.

    I just picked up my 84 for 1k... its got the same starter crap that most of the early ones do, but other then that its fine... bearing that in mind, I have been watching eBay quite a bit and most of the 80, 81, 82, 83 Viragos have been going for less then that. between 600 to 1000 from what Ive been seeing over the past couple months.. you might try talking him down a bit.

    Hmm, $1100 for a bike that looks to be in pristine shape sounds like a good deal.

    And it's a Yamaha... can't go wrong with Yamaha :p I really do hate buying bikes without riding them first, though.

    There are a lot of people who learn to ride before getting a bike... have you taken the MSF class?

    nope

    i know i know...

    but if i don't have the/a bike now, i'll just postpone doing the msf class, and keep putting it off and eventually just never get to it

    Sign up for the msf class now. Since it's nearing summer I bet you'll have at least a 1-2 month waiting list... so sign up now and take the course in a few months and you'll be all set. In the meantime, get a permit and pep around on the bike or find someone to teach you a few things.

    that long? :noes:

    i don't HAVE to have it to ride, right?

    i mean, a bike taking up space in my kitchen for that long because i can't ride it legally, or get it insured/registered, wouldn't go over too well

    I'm not sure how Florida does it, but in CA when you take the MSF course you just need to take the written DMV test to get your license.

    You can also take the DMV riding test, too... but the MSF course is always recommended whether or not you have your license.

    Like I said before, you can go to the DMV and take the written test and get your permit. Then you can legally ride around on it with insurance during daylight hours (again, may be different in FL).
