Re: Middle aged!!

I went to look at a 96 RT1100 this morning, 42K on it, but I did some research about the grease fitting!! which the owner stated that he couldn't afford to have it done, so I left it.
I ride a 2013 Kawasaki Concours and want something different, I do like the K series or K1200R, but funds can be pushed to $3500 right now, or wait until Spring and save a bit more,,,
