A bit more on the CL find. Allison took a horse and went camping so it's all HER fault. I have a possible buyer on the Beemer coming, nice bike and I am not giving it way but if it does sell will need a mount for a camping trip this summer. The old Road couch, Ventures are always a good possibility, big n heavy but comfortable as an old pair of shoes. I have a couple prospects in tick list, then THIS popped up on CL yesterday, no pics no description, no phone number, a kinda high price but not to far away. Left message widow calls me back, long story but bikes been mostly just sitting for "years" but she says battery has been on tender, lights come on, but it doesn't crank PLEASE come and look. Took Prius, no trailer trying to reduce the odds of my buying it (HAH!) Not quite as good as the pics, but remarkably well preserved 40,000 miles very well kept, a minor oil leak. Stupid thing cranks an starts! Run it up and down the road, everything works. Even the on board air compressor, automatic adjustable suspension. Radio CB etc. Only thing that didn't come to life was the cruise control and that prolly will with a little coaxing. Runs, handles, stops all OK. tires are as new but old, some dry rot cracks. Try REALLY hard to walk away. She wants this thing gone. Make the I don't really want this, sorry if I offend you offer, she holds out hand to take the cash. Damn. In truth it's paid for, title, keys in my hand but it's still in her shed. need to go get it kinda big for my trailer. AND there's a 78? GS750 Suzuki 11,000 original miles hasn't moved for decades sitting in the shed also. Aftermarket mufflers, repainted gas tank, otherwise, all there, all stock, motor kicks free. Doesn't look like it's ever been tipped. Pete you listening? Some pics of the Venture. Westering sun angled into shed, made pic quality poor. Always an adventure.
