It’s the twin to mine, aside from the city cases.   I kinda want to go look at it to take a picture and tell my wife I’ve had two all along and swap them out now and then.

I thought the same thing. Did you get the K75 that was on DC/CL in the underground garage, that the person hadn't tagged yet?

You can't get a better deal than that, with the miles and the year.

Cracked lower right fairing maybe. Easy fix.

If it was red, I would have it by now.

Yeah, that wouldn’t bother me at all.  I’d have some fun with it, in fact.  If I had a spare $1600, I’d have twins right now.

If I were where Barry is, I'd buy that sucker, do all the maintenance, photo the splines and flip it $2500 in the Spring.  Maybe swap my cases for the city jobs unless I was planning on some serious long distance touring.  Those damn city cases are getting like unicorn farts and when you can find them they are at least $200.

I suspect it has some running issues due to a rotted Z hose and fuel gum in the injectors.  No big deal if you let it sit all winter with a tank full of Techron and real gasoline, and start it up every couple weeks.

If only I wasn’t saving up for sumpin’ else.
I did ask if he’d sell the city cases alone.  Guess not. 
Why it’s still available is beyond me.  I thought it would be gone quick.

If I didn't already have 2 "not ridden enough" 1100's I'd snatch it up in a heartbeat.

I bookmarked the ad.  If he really needs to sell, the price might go even lower with the temperature.

"Come save it soon from a weekend of off road thrashing. . . "

That will more than likely a shorter thrash than a weekend if it's actually off-road, once it's dropped and the fairing is dangling.  We've been warned of the possible outcome—in fact, I think there's benign extortion happening here.  :giggles

What is up with you Northern guys, $1600.00 for a 25K K75s in this shape??
If it were closer to AZ I would already own it.  I'm complating on making him an offer and covering the shipping. I've got a call into a shipper I use right now for an estimate.
Please, somebody buy this, save me from myself.

I only buy them if the seats don't have rodent damage and they're within skiing distance.
