I finally found my SP2 - Now I have bookends!

Been waiting on this bike to come up for sale since last fall. 06 model. Finally did and I got it. Supposed to pay for the rest of it Tuesday and pick it up later in the week when it dries out. Now to start looking for some carbon and a few other small goodies. Too nice to go crazy on it tho. One owner and the mileage is correct!

Sweet bike! - I think most of us would be tempted if we found a rare unused example like that. Well done for having the patience to wait till the right one came along. It paid dividends.

Thanks guys.... it ended up costing me a little more since the guy brought into a local shop to consign it. I knew of the bike last year but not how to get ahold of the guy. The local shop is treating me right tho. Too nice to pass up. Now I know where that new ohlins rear shock I have laying around is going.

What did you give up to get this? I know you stated your wife was about to castrate you for your last purchase.

Nice to see a low mileage bike go to a good home.

MB. I think she finally gave up. Honestly she's a real gem about my addiction. I'm very lucky to be married to her.

JD... thanks.. I had a possible choice between this 1 owner stock gem or a 3 owner 04 with some mods (but a very nice bike) for a little less money. I think I made the right decision.
