Picked her up!

Picked up my first road bike tonight! Went with the 900 Classic LT. It's a 2010 with 6,000 miles on it, fantastic condition, power outlet and highway bars....$4,580 out the door! From what I've seen on CycleTrader, I believe I got a killer deal! I did buy the 2 year warranty and lifetime battery replacement warranty too, not figured into the above price.

Drove her over an hour home on the highway, which wasn't ideal, but it went fine for my first road experience. I did take the safety course and road dirt bikes when I was like 12, 20 years ago, so wasn't totally new out of the gate.

Her name is Spockette....yeah, nerdy. But come on, it's a Vulcan!

Nice ride! Welcome to the forum.

Still plenty of season left to enjoy that beast. Actually I think "Spockette" is a great name for your bike. I named my Classic LT "Buffy".

Good deal for the bike. Looks like you got a few extra upgrades too.

I wish mine was that color. That color combo is awesome.

Good deal

I have a 2009 and love it.
Mine is red and gold colour.
It has 67,000 km on it and still runs great.
