Another craigslist gem

http://houston.craigslist.org/mcy/1682049103.html

Going to look at this one tonight. Might buy it. It looks sick. And from what I understand, pretty reliable. Much more so than a Ducati.

But Ive heard maintenence is super pricey.

He will definitely have to come down some on the price or I might have to consider this one. I have a friend who lives there and am sending him by to check it out.

Have a friend who commutes in London with a F4. He loves it but does take his oil head when the weather is a bit dodgy...

What became of the Tuono? I really like those things and would be interested in yours, I can always repaint it...

I get first dibs on it and really have no interest in it. Like I said before I would rather have a pristine bike than a stained bike and a few thousand dollars. PM me with your contact information. I will see what the insurance company is going to charge me to buy it back and if you like that price just throw me a couple hundred as a finder's fee. You can come look at it if you want.
