Jacket's next motorcycle
 
I think the solution here is to just peer pressure Matt into getting the bike we all know he needs.. :D or just post up deals that are just too good to pass up, or maybe both. Here are the guidelines:

- $3000ish price range
- 450cc displacement or smaller
- 4 stroke
- titled, plated, can't be a science project to get it street legal.
- within the scope of the forum collective for tech support- can be different, but not an entirely "new frontier" technology-wise.

Jacket post up any other criteria I may have missed. :beer2:

I'll start off by noting this one has been for sale on CL for at least 4 months, and is due for an offer he can't refuse: http://denver.craigslist.org/mcy/2951422844.html

:)

- Size criteria should be 450 or smaller. Turns out the 350 EXC is a nearly new model, so that one is out.
- Other criteria: Offload my current 2 stroke. Had two people look at it this past weekend, but no buyer yet.

This is a fun article to gawk over the 450's - I look at it often when I need a fix.

I like the WR450 and of course any EXC or XC-W.

We could pick it up on the way out?

Wow, sweet! I've got room on the trailer Matt... and you can sell me that steering dampener if you want to get the price down a little. :D

Here's your WR: http://denver.craigslist.org/mcy/2934944363.html


And I know they're heavy, but I think this DR looks pretty classy looking http://denver.craigslist.org/mcy/2954755286.html

WR in Vail, with riding gear, pick it up on the way to Utah http://denver.craigslist.org/mcy/2926280602.html

If you want me to take a look at it, I'm happy to do so.

That WR has some potential, but there's some peer pressure around here to go Orange.....

On a side note - my favorite 2 quotes, which seem to exist in all motorcycle ads, is "low hours" and "extras."

"Low Hours" - What exactly are the Hours thresholds that all riders except me seem to know? Of course in most cases the bike in question is below this threshold....

"Extras" - Translation is that I'll have to spend lots of time unraveling the PO's hacks....

Well, we do all drive Toyotas but at least they are different colors.

It's the ads that don't say "low hours" that make me wonder how many miles are left on a bike before it totals itself.

I think a WR would be cool. I'd like to learn more about other brands of bikes. I wonder how much of the trail spares junk that we'd carry would actually fit both on an Austrian bike and a Japanese bike?
