I bought this bike in March of 2021 in Southern California while there helping family during COVID. It had 1247 miles on it. It had sat indoors for 6 years. I rode it through the desert to Borrego Springs and Joshua Tree National Park at Twentynine Palms, CA from Orange County and on some day trips in Southern California. Then I shipped it back home to Illinois where it has unfortunately seen little use. It does just as well in 6 lanes of high speed freeway traffic or canyon carving as it does on dirt timber roads.

It starts every time no matter what the weather is doing.
Clear Illinois title.
Garage kept.
5989 miles

Specs and Review

I lowered the bike using lowering links. I’m 5’7”. It can be put back to it’s original height in literally 10-15 minutes. I have a standard length side stand and a shortened one. Short one is on it now. Can be swapped in minutes.

It's kitted out with the following:
Shinko 705e dual sport tires - purchased April 2021
12V and USB outlet.
RAM ball mount for phone or GPS

CalSci Oil Filter Adapter - allows use of M20x1.5 filters

Velcro mount for I-PASS

There is a scuff mark on the left body panel. The original owner dropped it in a parking lot with under 250 mi on it and quit riding! The last time I checked on eBay a replacement was going for $149. Since it is barely noticeable and does not affect performance, I decided to leave it as is.

No SCAMS to pay more, cashier’s checks , no low balls etc. Cash only of purchased locally. I may be able to help with delivery and can connect you with a reliable shipper if you need it shipped.
