Default advice

What do you guys think of the Yamaha Vmax? Mid 90s vintage, so carbs and no ABS?

held the title for the worlds quickest production bike for a LONG time, yet a great everyday bike if you stay off the cams. If you're into that quasi cruiser/standard thing, I say get it. They are well sought after, so resale is no issue. The issue is finding one that hasn't been drag raced from every stoplight and beat to hell imho

a near-death experience is just god following "catch and release" regulations...

Anyone interested in a Kawasaki Vulcan? Guy at work bought one last week, crashed on his way home & broke his wrist. He's ok, but bike is for sale now. Needs turn signals & a kick stand apparently, I could get pictures if anyone wants? I'm guessing sub-$1k here, not sure didn't even ask
