    Thanks...i've been like a school girl all day around it.:o It only has ~1300 miles and not a scratch to be found. The seller was definitely a cool guy...he rode it home for me, filled up the tank, and even held first dibs for me when another guy offered him a bit more money.

    Nice bike, enjoy it, and ride safe! And ALWAYS wear your gear! None of this bullshit "I'm not going very far", I geared up today for a 3 mile round trip to gas up my bike, or "it's too hot to wear a jacket", I'd rather be sweaty than in the hospital getting skin grafts. And if I hadn't been hearing my gear when I went down last month, I would have had hamburger for an elbow instead of a bruise, true story. Just saying, your safety is in your own hands, but just because you are being safe doesn't mean you can't have fun. And I'm sure you;ll have plenty of fun on that ride!

    Yea, i intend to always wear it. I got all that stuff before i even had the bike just so there'd be no temptation to just ride without. I do need to pick up a pair of gloves though.

    edit: cant type...changed to to the.

    Awesome, good on ya! :bigthumb: Might want to pick up 2 pairs of gloves, that what I did. One pair is a short set that just comes down to the wrist and had lots of venting, and those are the ones I wear in warm/hot weather. The other pair is a thick gauntlet type of glove for cool/cold weather; the gauntlet style helps because they come up over the jacket sleeves and keep the cold wind out.

    I also got one of these:

    I love it. It's thin and light spandex that breathes fine, but keeps cold wind off the front of your neck when the weather is cool, and keeps the sun from burning the back of your neck when it's sunny out.

    Glad you found a bike, brobot! Seller sounds almost as cool as I am- my last bike's buyer needed me to deliver it out to Griswold from Enfield, in late March. :squint:

    I got a new pair of black gloves, I'll give you a good price. Let me know

    Gratz on your bike. $3400 sounds like a great price to me.
