Hi - I'm the second owner of this wonderful motorcycle. This was my second bike and we had some great trips down to Virginia, up to the Catskills and Pennsylvania, and even an eight day trek to Nova Scotia. This is a solid, reliable bike that is strong enough to carry a second rider and gear or spirit you along solo through traffic. The upright seating position is also great for seeing above other vehicles in traffic.
I purchased this bike in March 2012 from an older gentleman in Delaware. Since then I've conducted oil changes at the start and end of the riding season using Shell Rotella T6 and K&N oil filters. In December 2012, at approximately 10,000 miles, I replaced both tires with Bridgestone BT-023s. The bike currently has around 22,000 miles. The bike features an CALSCI windshield that was modified by the previous owner to better move the air up and above your head.
If ridden responsibly, the bike easily gets around 50 MPG. The bike also features an aftermarket exhaust (Akrapovic e1, 0502) that sounds great. There's also one small dimple in the tank that you likely wouldn't notice if I didn't point it out. The bike also has Shad top and side plastic cases which do show some wear and tear. I also installed heated hand grips and a usb port using a relay. The USB port is located under the seat. Lastly, I installed one inch lowered pegs from Knight Design to provide additional leg room on long rides.
I still have the original windshield and pegs and will include a mini bleeder for changing the brake fluid, an oil filter removal tool, ceramic brake lubricant, an oil pan and front and rear EBC Organic Brake Pads that I have not installed.
I'm only selling as I got engaged over the winter and she doesn't want to compete with a Japanese motorcycle. Sad story, I know.
Test ride only with cash in hand.
