Default Voyager XII

Anyone here ever ride a Kawasaki Voyager XII? I'm looking at getting a tourer, but don't want so much weight and I want something cheap.

haha!! No not really, but after riding 1500 miles from 5pm Friday to about noon on Sunday my right hand is still numb. I don't have the $$ nor the desire for a Wing or an HD tourer so I'm wanting to find something cheap, but less painful than the Concours.

Damn, dude, a ride like that on any bike is likely to leave you a little numb somewhere, that's a lot of miles! My Concours was really numbing my right hand, but adding the throttle stop helped a lot. Being able to take my hand away for a few minutes now and then made all the difference.

Does your motorcycle jacket, by any chance, look like this?

No it won't. Smoke wants something cheap. 13 grand ain't cheap. He can probably get a good Voyager for about 5-6 grand (6-8 grand for the later year models with less miles). Even cheaper if he's willing to put some of work into it.

Umm, no, I have a blue and black Joe Rocket Ballistic 4.0 thank you.

I don't mind some work, but wouldn't mind something that had less than 50K miles and was in pretty good shape.

Cycle trader seems to have a wide selection under a nationwide search.

...he can find an '80 Gold Wing with only 32K on it for $2400 like I did. Lots of options out there.
