Be careful if you test ride the V2K.

Those of us who have them, are fond of the saying..

"If you have never ridden one, you will never understand..."

If you ride it, your going to want it....

What you say is true. I did not even ride my before I bought it. I just sat on it and it was over. I HAD TO HAVE IT. I was all grins and thrilled riding it home after dark in April in the low to mid 30's. I did not care it was coming home with me.

I drove by the local dealer to see if they had one to look at, didn't realize it's a discontinued model. The used one is across town (close to you Smedlin) so I might drive down tomorrow. Gotta talk to the wife tonight and see what she things about spending 2500 more on a bike. Not looking forward to that conversation.

PM sent..lol.

Actually she gave me the stink eye about going up in price and said I'll have to wait a while...lol.

Still have this other bike coming up next week I think that was in the 5k range, so we'll check that one out. I may still go look at the 2000 tomorrow since I'll be out working there anyway. Then at least I have a comparison to consider once I see the Nomad next week.

Well he's definitely trying to get the word out so he can sell it. This bike showed up on Pensacola's craigslist a while back. It's only an 8 hour drive.

Wow. Well, in fairness they had it down at HoT a week or so ago so maybe they were hoping someone would buy it while in town for the event.
