My kid just picked up a CR250 and is looking at selling his CBR250.
I guess he's done riding on the road.

Let me know if there is any interest I'll have him post it up in the For sale forum,

I need to sell the V65 and Nighthawk and buy a nice bike with a seat the size of a love chair, something I can actually find a nice set of Hard bags for. Id love a Hardley, but can't spend that type of money on a bike that isn't worth it.

If you want comfort, a Goldwing is what you want.

Looking to either get a back rest or a solo saddle before Friday. Leaning more towards a back rest for now. Don't want to test a new seat out on a 1k + mile trip

Agreed! Depending on how much your looking to spend you can pick up a gold wing of various age for less than you would think. ( although they are kinda pricy overall ). But unlike that other brand a little age and miles don't mean nearly as much . as long as it has had a bit of regular maintenance they will go for many many miles. ( 200,000+ miles is more common than you would think.

Or a 1st gen Kawasaki Concours if you're looking for something a little sportier than a 'wing.

(and might be more affordable with the money you'd get from selling those 2 bikes)

I picked my wing up for $ 3,700. And they are cheaper depending on year/miles

Wondering if it is worth the $200 to put progressive springs in the nighthawk.

I heard progressive springs are very good. That's what I'm going to go with when I rebuild the front end on my bike

I just acquired a 2004 Husqvarna TE510. It's probably a 7/10. The plastics are a little thrashed, but everything else is pretty good. Needs a few little things, (brake lever, kickstand bolt, missing a couple fasteners, etc. )

Anybody interested in it? The bike is pretty powerful and more than I would want on the local trails.

I'll put some pics up later. I'm thinking if I can sell it now (as is) I will, if not, I'm going to replace all the little stuff and the plastics and pump up the price.

Good candidate for a snow bike.
