Hello for Los Angeles - picked up a 2001 Speed Triple!

Hey everyone, I'm Don.

Long time rider but just back in the saddle after a 20 year hiatus.

For 2 weeks I got to love the crap out of my 01 Speedy until it was discovered the engine basically needed to be replaced. Oh, and the cinder block size rock I ran over kinda put a kink in the fun as well. Fortunately I had a 99 parts bike that had snazzy black wheels on it.

Truly a love hate scenario going on right here. Hopefully it will turn out alright in the end.

I'm aware its not advised to just jump in with a for sale/wanted ad right out of the gate but I'd like to know what the process is for posting that I need a motor. I've read the rules and plan on being a contributor to the site where I can.

For the record... looking for a low mileage 955i, for less than ebay prices.

Peace!
