Sweet MotorCycle??
show user profile  9krausec
I am shopping around for a motorcycle for this summer possibly. My friend and I are planning on buying one each and bike from mid wisconsin to boarder of mexico and back with them (roasting hotdogs over a fire, sleeping off the road aways, kind of like Harley Davidson and the marlboro man except more bad ass).. I was looking for a cruiser but do not have my mind set on what kind of style I like the most yet.. Check this out though..

The seller seems a bit shady to me.

He uses lots of terms like "looks good... for a 1992"...

also, this raises flags:

This cycle is sold with a Bill of Sale.
THE WISCONSIN D.O.T. WILL NOT ISSUE A TITLE OR REGISTRATION FOR THIS VEHICLE.
Please check with your own state's motor vehicle department.
Many states will issue a title for a rebuilt or home built vehicle


Good luck, don't become an organ donor before your time.

I once rode a sport bike from Phoenix to Southern Colorado in a single day. Make sure you have some tunes or something to keep you company, and a helmet is a must since many states have helmet laws anyway. Arizona is not one of them though, all that is needed is eye protection.
Sport bikes are not known for their comfort and I basically put my pack on the tank and laid down on it while traversing the high plains and desert areas. I hope that you are an experienced rider because in Arizona/New Mexico/Colorado at least, there are very strong crosswinds.
It will help you to have a GPS that shows where gas stations are since you only get basically 100-125 miles out of a tank. Be prepared to stop often. At least on a sport bike.
If you make it to my neck of the desert, look me up.

from the pic it looks really nice. it's got a killer motor, size-wise. but honestly i have to listen to 'em runnin' before i'd lay any money down.
i guess if the miles are low enough, it sounds solid, and you can get the title then that ain't a bad price, even if it is 16 years old.
i have a '94 Yamaha XT 600 i'll sell ya! (wife doesn't like it)
fun as hell

Hm, its 16 years old, sounds like it was totaled (crashed) and rebuilt... looks like the only reason its selling for $2k is those rad exhaust pipes. And 1100cc? That might be pretty gnarly especially if you've never ridden a bike. I'd personally go for something newer/less flashy, its more important that a bike be reliable than it is to look good.

I'm actually thinking of getting one, since my car is on the verge of exploding, and the weather is getting nice. Something like this bad boy:

>Sport bikes are not known for their comfort

If you're talking about a bikes like a Yamaha R1 thats true. But the ones that are catalogued as "sport/touring" are actually way more comfortable than a chopper! On a chopper, your lower back will bulge, and carry your weight while compensating for the shocks. On a sport/touring bike your back will be straight, and your weight will be divided over your back and your wrists.

This would be my weapon of choice :) http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/2004-Honda-Interceptor-Red-VFR-800-w-o-ABS-Clean-title_W0QQitemZ260232529754QQcmdZViewItem

Also, you don't need a sixpack, but a couple of excercises for your abs really helps to enforce your lower back.

Mine has been collecting dust in the garage for over a year now :(

This is what I used to ride and it was a blast.(Not my bike in the photo, but the same make and color scheme) The first week or so I hurt pretty bad on my wrists and shoulders. It was a daily driver (no snow in Arizona) so I had to build up the proper muscles but after that it was great. I will likely never get a bike that is larger than a 600 because I know how much trouble I would get into. I once went from a stop to 135MPH to a stop in one mile. I was challenged by a BMW and a Corvette on separate occasions and smoked them both, not even close.
I popped only one wheelie. It scared the hell out of me. Not for fear of getting hurt, but fear of having to replace the expensive plastic.

Looks like a nice bike, but the company selling it and the lack of title would bother me. They probably built it from wrecked bikes they had at the yard hence the reason it has no vin. I would avoid it like a pissed off skunk at night. Also, since most bikes have a vin number, will car faxes be available for them? If so, have anything you buy checked out. I know enough guys with bikes to know that the are easy to wreck. To bad you wern't about 1 month earlier and wanted a crotch rocket. A girl that i work with bought one for her boyfriend and then 1 month later he left her. she had a Yamaha R1 1000 with 1500 miles on it that cost $14,000 in october that she ended up selling to a dealership for $8000 in the middle of March.
