Where to advertise a Yamaha cruiser (2006 V-Star)?

Hi, all,

I got roped into helping my friend sell her 2006 Yamaha V-Star 1200cc (impulse purchase, inappropriate bike - soured her on riding...).

I would think that it is best to place a classified ad in an online enthusiast forum devoted to that brand/style of bike. Unfortunately, that is completely unknown territory for me - never having been involved with cruisers.

Do you know of any venues appropriate for advertising of such bike?

Thanks in advance.

I sold my LT in here. I would sell a V-Star in a V-star forum. Google is your friend.
And then there's always eBay. Some like it ... some don't. I do.

It must be a 1100 Vstar. As far as I know they don't make a 1200. The do make a 1300 though. Heck, I would advertise it here on this forum.

Thanks guys, it's all useful info!

(And yes, it is an 1100cc - shows you how little I know about these...).
