Yes, it's a shocking thought, but it's true and you can discuss them here.
i went to the shop and looked at new bianchi's just before christmas but i need to do some work on the wings and my super " k " firstYep...Besides my 91 Wing, I also own a 97 Valkyrie standard, my hot rod Goldwing! and I have a 98 Kawasaki KLR 650, for when I want to get a little dirty. I'm also going to pick up a Specialized Hardrock mountain bike this weekend...Does it count? It's a bike!
I got the Cannondale Synapse 4 and love it. Very comfortable as road bikes go. Also have a Jamis dakar team that I've had for about 12 years for my mountain bike riding.i'm more of a roadie myself and i expect a new bianchi to cost $1000 - $1200 for a cheap one plus $150 or so for pedals. the 1500 needs a new rear tire and have the used left shock replaced. i'll change the fluid in the rear and check brakes while its apart. the 1200 just needs all brakes inspected
bigjim, The Vmax has always been at the top of my list as something to own. I just never had that opportunity come to pass. It's a shame you had to let it go.I hated to see it go, but there wasn't enough budget for 2 bikes- so I sold the hotrod. My 1990 Vmax--totally bad to the bone and more than enough to have your drivers license revoked several times, but no room for the big man to stretch-out! This bike can lite it up in the first 3 gears and make your life flash before your eyes in 4th and 5th! The Vmax also has the marvelous ablity to embarass the so called Harley Vrod in the stop light Gran-Prix! LOL--so they can put that in thier Screamin-Eagle pipe and smoke it.
