Thanks for the welcome. As I am new here I don't yet have the option to make an album to post pics in as per Wizard's tutorial. Or if I do, I wasn't able to find it! lol
Thanks for the tips twowheels, as I was sitting on the bike I was thinking it was a tad low. Comfortable though. My inseam is a 32 so that makes sense.
It'll probably take me a bit to figure out what is comfortable as far as handlebar angle and suspension etc... especially considering I'm coming from a sport bike where 'comfortable' isn't necessarily high on the list of attributes.
The bike is a consignment from the wife of the owner who died recently and has the following options : (cut and paste from dealer description)
This bike is perfect and ready for a new home. Comes with MRA Vario windscreen, UFO handguards, SW Motech engine guards, skidplate and running lights, Givi side cases, Twisted Throttle tool canister, lowering kit installed, cover, front and rear stands and BRAND NEW Heidenau K66 tires.
The bike apparently never so much as saw a dirt road. At least according to the dealer. Not that I don't trust them, but you know how it can go sometimes. And part of me thinks maybe the whole 'he died' thing might be a way to tug at my heartstrings so as not to haggle on the price. Who knows. But let's say it's all true - I guess my question is : Is $5500 CDN a fair price? It's been there a couple months and it's dropped a few hundred in price already. I don't want to insult anybody by lowballing (say $4800??) but couldn't really find anything equivalent for sale to compare it with. So any feedback would be great. I'm ready to drop the hammer soon if it seems to be a decent buy.
