Smile Wanted: Suzuki or Kawasaki

I'm looking for a Suzuki Marauder 800 or a Kawasaki Vulcan 800A. Hopefully, it is near the border of Central Mass, and Conn. Anybody got one they wanted to get rid of?

Kawasaki and Suzuki have been trying to get rid of them for years.

Smile SUZUKI or KAWASAKI

Yeah, but I heard they are very forgiving bike to ride for the first-time rider. Well, maybe not the first time. I had a KDX220 about 5 years back. I know it is not the same, but it is close enough for me. I'm 6'1" and 270lbs. I have heard that those two would be the perfect match for me.

Due to problems with my back, neck and leg, I have a hard time getting on a dirtbike now. I was looking to get the marauder or the vulcan so that I could convert it into a trike. I know it would be easier for me to ride with my present disabilities.

If you want a trike you'll probably want more power than a sub-liter cruiser can give you.

Red face Marauder ??

It seems that my luck is not with me today. Went out yesterday, to check on a local bike, and got rear-ended by someone who wasn't paying attention. Now, due to that driver, I am down 2300 in funds for my bike. Go figure...

I'll bet the guy who rear-ended you was driving a Miata.
