Attachment 163013 I've been a Kal person for a long time, starting with a G5 (100cc) street \ trail back in 1975 when I was 14. I've had some super nice 1's over the years, including a 1980 Z1- R (black, yosh pike 29mm smoothbores) a 1976 Z-1 900 B, ( F-A-S-T but didn't like to turn) and my all time fav, a 1981 KZ 1000 LTD. (two tone black and silver)
Always wanted a ZRX, but took a 15 year bike vacation after being hit by a drunk woman in ATL. in 1995. Retired in 2011 at 50 with NO DEBT (!!!! :grin:) and now have alot of free time.
Started with a 2006 Mini Cooper S (supercharged 6 speed), bought a new Mini (paddle shift auto - tubbo) and then it happened. My current female called from work. "come by" 2005 Shadow 1100 beside her car, and she ask -- "Is that worth $2500 ?" I said sure, so she says she's buying it for us to ride. The guy was laid off and getting ready to lose his house, (wife and 3 kids) and had to sell it to catch up the payments. Great deal at $2500 so I went ahead and bought it !! (not her)
Decent bike, but not me. So--looking on craigslist Friday and fell in love !!http://knoxville.craigslist.org/mcy/3030730802.html Called right away, left message. No call Friday or Saturday, but he called Sunday morning. Went to see it, offered $3000 cash, and he says "no" and I about died !!
Left, but KNEW I had to have it !! 9700 miles and killer shape, couldn't be beat. Bank closed yesterday, and I thought about it all day. But -- 6pm rolls around and I knew I had to call and buy it. Got it at lunch today and love it !! Any feedback or opinions on the deal ?? Fair price ?? New tires, K and N's, etc., but I've never heard of this exhaust !! (Dale Walker Holeshot ??) How is it ?? Do I need to replace it now ?? It sounds nice, but am I better off with a D and D or something else ?? Anybody else have this type of slip-on ?? Please help !!
