I have had the beast since 1990. It has been very good to me, its like parting with an old frend. Its just one of them turns for the worst in life and I must part with it for I am in need of funds. I understand I am not to say things of that nature as they indicate a vunerability and need. However I will not move much on the price. In all the years of sitting astride two wheels this by far is and has been the most enjoyable and exiting ride for me. It has been customized a few times along the way, and is now in need of some external attention. It has never ran so good as it does now.
