I bought my bike used in July 2011 with 700 miles on it; I am the third owner. It now has 3700 miles on it. Not a lot, but I enjoy each one.

The most amazing thing about this post is that the first two owners combined managed to put 700 miles on your bike combined

Yeah, when I verified the second owner hadn't mistyped the miles in the ad, I had to buy the bike. BTW, he never took the bike out of Rain mode.

Sorry, but I am disappoint.

Less than 2,000 miles since April. With 2 businesses, a wife, 14 month old, and a new house that still needs completion, just no time to ride.

Wish I had something this crazy when I was still in my late teens and early 20's.

Dr. D, that's the kind of deal we all dream of. What color? Did they do any aftermarket additions?

I'm 23 and decided to pull the trigger now while I've still got cat-like reflexes to manage the power

My dad is a business owner and we just built a house, and he literally put 700 miles on his Harley last year...that stuff just consumes so much time, but when you do have a chance to ride it really is a stress reliever.

I like the seat, and the tank bag is sick...probably comes in handy.

Don't worry - the reflexes are still there. I race bicycles now, but raced CCS for 5 years and one year in the AMA.

Enjoy it man. I had some awesome times riding with my buddies when I didn't have any obligations. I've lost some passion for riding - I think racing does that to you.
