I've got a crashed '88 HawkGT I was gonna rebuild, I'd prolly sell to ya for what I got in it - $750.

(No, not really. I'd never sell a HawkGT to an Infidel..............)

Nah, "The AirHawk" is an '89 Red, the wreck I picked-up is an '88 Blue.

For what you're planning to spend BrowningBAR or I would end up with 4 or 5 motorcycles. Get a used S3, a used Wee-Strom, a used Monster 750 and a used DRZ400.

Sounds good, but I live in a condo and rent a storage space for my bike(s), rollaway tool chest, compressor, workbench, lift, etc. I have the space and the patience for two bikes max.

But, maybe, one more could fit in there! I'll check the listings during training today. I love WiFi!

Thank you!
I test rode one quite extensively while waiting to pick up my '02 1150RS from Max's in New Hampshire. I loved the motorized windscreen but overall I found it too bulky for my taste. The RS is simpler, lighter, still good protection for touring. Compare the two if you have the chance
