Jon, there were a several people who seemed to take my decision harder than me! A couple of regular customers even got snarky about it and would give me a hassle every time they came in. But all is well now, let's just call it a temporary bout of insanity and move on. :D

Gummiente LOL

JStark….no, it's not blue. It is black. I found that buying a second hand bike was not easy. Aside from budgetary constraints, the sellers I contacted seemed to not really want to sell their bike. One guy said, "Oh, my friend wants to borrow it for the weekend." I told him to let me know after the weekend and that if his friend didn't dump it, I would come and see it. I never heard from him for over a week. In the meantime, I had bought this V-Star from someone local. He had back surgery and was advised not to ride anymore.
The other guy told me....oh, I need to change the oil in it. I said ok, how about the weekend. Or how about in a day or two. He said ok, but when I contacted him, he had not done it.
Seriously, why list it for sale?

I was looking for a 2nd hand 650 V-Strom, but they are rare. Lots of 1000 available, but I didn't want a 1000. In the meantime, I have something to ride....when the snow and ice and frost go away.

2003 Honda Shadow 750 ACE. Fascinated with sprockets and getting more top end out of the old boy. Any advice is welcomed and making it into a bobber is on my bucket list for kicks. Also, any mods that you dig for my bike, please pass them my way.
