Well I might buy another motorcycle.........

Postby thkbaron [OP] » Mar 24 2020, 9:06pm

Used to own a 2005 Suzuki Boulevard M50. Sold it when I moved to afford the pay cut at my new job....(this was 2008). I've missed it every since. My wife of all people stumbled across one on facebook. it's in Canada so I'll have to do a speedo swap on it....but it only has 6000 miles on it and I can get it for around 2100 bucks. USD. Can't pass it up. I'm assuming the brake hose and fuel hose will need swapping not to mention a complete fluid swap.

It's not the indian scout I want but lets face it. me dropping over 10 grand on myself when I have 2 kids running around is completely unrealistic. Let's hope it works out! Hope everyone is doing well with this corona garbage. Stay at home and just detail your trucks guys. I'll be doing the same.

Nice, still waiting patiently for my uncle to give me his '03 deuce. Would be nice to drive if it would ever stop raining!

You don't realize how much you miss a motorcycle when you don't have one until you've had one. Just like a truck. LOL! :mrgreen:

Every time I've sold one, I've kicked myself for doing it. Sold my BMW a couple of weeks ago and didn't get my new one until this past weekend. That was long two weeks... And it was especially hard since I knew what I'd be getting, but agreed with my friend that he'd still ride it until he found a new one. Damn it was tough...

Just go buy one. You can get them for 5k these days. It was one of the first Harley’s I rode back in the day.

Still miss my 94 Fat Boy, but my body is too beat up for another bike, and more importantly, the boss says no.

That sounds reasonable for a bike to just go out and play. I've got a 2017 Suzuki DR200S dual sport. Only reason I have it is because I get the itch to ride every once in a while and it serves that purpose. I hate street riding here in Central Florida. It's scary! So the little 200 is great to go off on a trail and blow some steam. I picked it up from a guy 2 years ago that had bought it brand new 6 months before that. It still has 285 miles on it. I paid $3k for it! His family forced him to sell it because they were scared for him. I'm sure eventually I'll sell it too. I barely use it! Anyways, it sounds like a fair price to get you back to riding.
