Hi

Hello all. Just picked up a '04 with 10k for 3500. Salvage title, but I think it was mostly cosmetic damage. Runs like a champ and doesn't look too bad either. This is my first twin, ridden plenty of I-4s and singles (read: supermoto) on the street but nothing is as torquey as this thing! Love it! Looking forward to shooting the breeze with you all.

Thanks. I'm originally from Colorado Springs, living in Sierra Vista, Arizona and on a business trip for two months in Hood River, Oregon. I figured with all the good roads up here I should have something to ride and I left my XR650SMR in AZ so I started browsing Craigslist and found this one. I'm happy with it. Haven't decided if I want to keep it and ride it home, or try to unload it before I leave.......

Yeah, I do miss the springs, but there are quite a few good roads out here. Found a loop that reminds me a lot of the Deckers>Pine Junction run.
