Actually it's Clanfield, not Canfield.20k is kaka. The reason used bikes don't sell for any more than they do is because many folks don't understand that bike engines have been hardened and run as long as many cars. Maintenance is cheap and fairly easy if you like skinned knuckles.
Plus, if you buy it you will be in the fine company of Ms. Canfield. I've had an open offer of marriage to her for at least 5 years, but she keeps saying something about Holland and their dikes or something. I just don't understand.
ditto. It isn't as heavy as big cruisers or road couches, but it is tall. If you have an inseam of 30" or less, consider installing lowering links (cheap). I have found myself embarrassed and picking it up at stop signs when my toes land on gravel. Lowering links solve that.About 40K on my '03. Never a problem. Just maintain, add farkles, and ride like heck. You'll love it.
And... I agree with bwringer -- take your time to reacquaint and increase your safety knowledge.
You, my friend, have raised the farkle bar. We kneel at your feet.I bought my '03 in December with 10,500 miles. I finished the car in May and have put 2,000+ miles on it since. I am really pleased with it.
Thanks for your kind words, Bureaucrat. I did install heavy fork springs but I have not added a fork brace. When I take the rig off the road next winter, I am planing to do a steering mod to reduce the trail. I will either build plates to push the axle forward a couple of inches, or will build leading link forks.You, my friend, have raised the farkle bar. We kneel at your feet.
Did you do anything to stiffen the front forks on the bike? I've heard that having a sidecar puts lateral strain on the suspension because the geometry is totally different when doing corners.
