I just bought 2004 Buell Blast with 26 miles on ebay for $2300. I followed some wise advise in this thread.
I went shopping with my wife to different Motorcycle retailers. We went to Suzuki, BMW, Troy City Garage: sold different brands, 2 Harley stores and she fell in love with the Buell. She just past her MSF training and is not confident if she will like riding. The 2007 Buell Blast retailed at $5,000. I got a great deal on used one. No significant changes from year to year. Being delivered this week.
We asked the seller why their was only 26 miles on Bike. He stated he bought wife a Kawasaki but bike was to big for her. His wife dropped several times, and he sold it and bought her new one; but it was too late she never rode again. The Buell sat in garage for a year. She lost her confidence in riding because she had wrong bike.
This bike is said to be easy to handle. Bike is low to ground and my wife is flat footed with some knee bend. Wife is 5'2". If my wife builds her confidence in riding the cost is well worth it; If it ends up being a piece of junk when it gets some miles on it, so be it. We bought it right. Good lesson here.
Thanks for this thread. I may have a riding partner soon.
