If you weren't in Nevada, I'd think about taking it off your hands.

11 years old and 6k miles? Neat. That's a cool looking bike, I actually like it better than the new Buell stuff. It looks bad to the bone.

It's probably taken that long to accumulate those miles in-between repair-shop visits...............

square headlights are so 80's.

Really, the Cyclone and S3 are great bikes. Just enough to be fun- not enough to get your license suspended.

Well I'm right next to Nevada and will keep it warm in my garage until you pick it up.

Smart A*&!!
My other 1997 has 55,000 miles on it and it has NEVER been in the shop except for oil changes and a fork seal replacement.
My 1998 has 25,000 miles and only a dead battery has let me down.

Beat that sucker with any other brand. I know...I used to ride Kawasaki's.

Now to be serious. I would like to sell this one. Wife does not ride it so... Out it goes.

In case you didn't know (but I think you suspected) I was merely yankin' KenMoore's chain, not really intending to cut-down the bike. The Buell/Harley reliability thing is a long-standing joke here, mostly without any basis in reality.

That said, my '04 FZ6 has ~50k miles on it, never in the shop once.

Actually that wasn't my chain you were yanking. I thought we were going to keep this fling just between us...
