Rollin', Rollin', Rollin'

I've been real excited about riding this year and the weather just won't cooperate.  I've been out three times and only one was of any consequence... and I needed my heated grips.  So what's an agitated rider do when they have time on their hands, this one likes to look at craigslist ads.  I found some beauties, I set the search parameter for under $3200 and am just amazed and what you can get.  I would guess that 60 to 70% are cruisers but you poke around enough and you find some very interesting machines.

The first one that caught my eye and actually had me talking with Serena about adding to our garage was a 1992 Suzuki GSX 1100 G.  Sort of a big muscle bike with shaft drive.  The current owner had it listed for $1700 and then dropped it to $1200 a few days ago.  Don't think it's there anymore, that price was a steal.  I balked from pursuing it when I found out how much it weighed.  Here is an image from the web:

The other one that really caught my eye was a 1983 Honda GL1100 naked for $2800.

Here's the link to the ad: https://boston.craigslist.org/sob/mcy/d/1983-goldwing-gl1100-low-miles/6542375178.html

Normally I find brown about as appealing as grey or black but it just looks right on this bike.  And those wheels, gorgeous.  Think this one might be too heavy for me too but wow, such great bikes.

Practicing Normite.
