History
my buddy bought this bike new in 1999. we rode together(at the time i was on a 1997 bandit 600) often. that is the first time i saw the bike and loved it, especially after i rode it. years later in 2008 i convinced him to sell it to me. it had been laid down on the left side so the lower fairings were trashed. it had been sitting for 4 years! the bike had 7000 miles on it! we came to an understanding on price. shook hands and made the deal.
