    Not sure if these were shared previously. From a trip I did in northern CA up in the costal range based out of trinity lake this past summer.

    I did that ride about 1.5 years ago, it was incredible! Took 1 all the way up to 101 then into Oregon and Washington, camping along the way.

    This photo might even be in the same spot lol.

    So, I shot the guy with the used 2019 Super Ten an email through cycletrader with a list of questions. We'll see if he answers.

    Well that vfr turned out to be a piece of crap. The bike had 8900 miles but the condition it looked like it had 40,000. 12 year old front tire, worn brakes, no brake fluid in the master, no clutch fluid in that master, scratches all over, leaking from bottom of head bearing, chain bad and the oil was black. He had no records of the bike at all. The guy traded for another bike a year ago. He did no maintenance at all and seemed clueless. It’s a $3000 bike that he wants $5000 for. Bike is not safe at all to ride. Crazy people. So I walked well ran from there.

    Damn. That's a bummer that it was a waste of your time. The hunt continues!

    Damn sure looks like the same spot looking the opposite direction. Yup thats the avenue of the giants. When I picked up my super tenere in Eugene OR, I rode due west to the coast then proceeded to take the 101 (including lost coast route up in fortuna area), to the 1 and took the 1 the whole way south home to the ventura area - 1200mi of riding. Most beautiful ride I have ever done, especially highway one from its northern start to the golden gate bridge.

    You are an animal to do a ride of that distance on a bike like you pictured!

    Don't get too excited. Not sure Cycletrader will even deliver the email. I just don't want to try and do the stupid text thing. Don't like putting my number out there unnecessarily.

    I reached out to a dealer in Kansas that has one with the gear on it that I'd like, but they haven't answered.

    Definitely the most beautiful ride I’ve done as well. It was hard not to stop every couple miles to take in the scenery. I wish I had the time to make it up to Olympic National Park, but my destination was further inland towards Yakima before heading back.

    My wrists were definitely angry, lowered clip-ons aren’t the best choice for long distances :rofl:. I recently inherited my father’s ‘04 Harley Road King that will make trips easier on my body. I’m hoping to do 1/101 all the way south, potentially to Baja, for my next big one.

    Here’s the Road King on my 2x cross country trip last summer to pick it up. We had always talked about riding out to Sturgis so I went way out of my way to make sure his Harley made it out there.

    I don’t see it like a waste of time. I am retired so not a big deal. Plus you really need to get eyes on something you are really interested in. Pictured ALWAYS make it look better.

    Well that's good that you don't feel like it was a waste. Definitely agree that hands/eyes on is the way to go. That's why I was trying to bribe @nd4spdbh to go check a couple bikes for me, but I didn't know it was a trek through Mordor to do it.

    Huh. Never heard of it. Still, I don't think I can do that. Email is the only contact option on the ad. Just gotta wait and see what the guy does, I guess.

    I noticed that the inquiry through cycletrader to the bike in KS I got an automated message from cycletrader that it was sent. I never got that for the Cali bike. I sent another, and apologized if it was a repeat.

    These are the questions I asked.

    1 - Are you the original owner of the bike?

    2 - Where the sun damaged the dash, does the indicator for the turn signal still function properly? Are there any gaps created by the melting at any of the assembly seems on the dash?

    3 - Was the bike flashed/tuned with the addition of the exhaust, or is it still stock? Does the exhaust include its baffle?

    4 - What brand of auxiliary lights are those? Would you mind sending me some additional pictures of how they are mounted? The images on cycletrader aren't clear enough to see very well. Did you have to drill to mount them?

    5 - When the barkbusters and engine guards got their character markings, did either have to be bent back out afterward? I've read SW Motech bars tend to partially collapse to absorb energy and often have to be bent back into shape.

    6 - Do you mind sharing the story behind the character gained on the bars/guards?

    7 - Do you have any maintenance records for the bike?

    8 - Does the skid plate have to be removed to change the oil, or can it remain in place?

    9 - I see a tank ring for a bag. Can that be removed and do you have the stock hardware?

    10 - If the headlight guard were removed, are any stock hardware pieces included?

    11 - Are any of the stock components included with the bike?​
