Easily the most bang for the buck I have ever seen. Looks cherry too. Unfortunately, my license took a BIG hit riding that damned Hayabusa. It's crack on wheels! I buy cruisers to cruise. After riding sport bikes, the 'Power Cruiser' thing doesn't do anything for me.
I check the three areas of Craigslist near me every morning with coffee. It's kind of a ritual. I hear you on the sportbikes, I'm amazed every day at what you can get. If a guy is low on money or needs a second bike toy that won't hurt the budget, there are some serious deals! I had a sport bike, well an Italian version, a Moto Guzzi Lemans. Loved that bike, sold it because I couldn't handle the clip-ons anymore. I have spine injuries so those kind of bikes are not an option anymore.

Check this out, it's just a few day slice of one small area near me:
sacramento craigslist > motorcycles/scooters: search for "fatboy"

What area are you in?

I live in the Chicago area. I search Craigslist here every day too. I bought and sold 3 bikes through there already. It's the best. Cheap Harleys are non existant here though, cept Shovels.

Hey hey, you guys are getting a little too civil with each other here, before you know it you'll be taking showers together. Now let's get back in our corners and remember your positions. On one side we have "Harley's Best F*ck The Rest" and on the other side we have "Yamaha's superior engineering and manufacturing process makes it the obvious choice"....

When the bell rings, come out typing

"Star is a fake company that makes copycat motorcycles. Their fake tough-guy riders deserve no more 'kudos' or respect than that of any other brand."

What brand of motorcycle he rides doesn't make a guy any more or less tough. That has to do with [fighting] proficiency, shape (fitness), size, weight, and attitude. Or are you just referring to the commercials? Personally, the guys I tend to have the least respect for are the fat guys who ride in the reclined position on any cruiser, whether it's a Harley or a metric cruiser. They're about on par with the young squids who drag/wheelie from every light on their ubiquitous 600cc GSX-R's. Of course, if I were young and stupid or fat and reclined on a cruiser, I'd have different opinion

You idiot. Miatas make you gay and Harleys make you a tough guy. Everybody knows that.

Firefighters use forklift to move 900-lb. man - CNN.com
