I have 4 bikes. An 09 Rocker heavily modded, a Ducati 1098 that is fairly well stock, a Moto Guzzi LeMans MKIV and a Yamaha XT250.

One thing i do know is that nobody gets out alive.

Saw a Harley hit a deer last weekend, and he was probably doing 70mph.
I was dialing 911 when I saw the guy stand up. He had a helmet and full leather, riding boots etc.

I hope the deer was OK.

My friend Craig bought this as a butt-ugly seventies style chopper, sometime in the early eighties.
We tore it down and built this. A mish mash of parts, but more or less a 53.
He fitted it with a foot clutch and single fire ignition. A total blast to ride!

Foot eh? That must be so weird to ride. Forces you to always have one foot on the bike when stopped. Typically that's a good thing.

Still has neutral doesn't it?

It's not as hard to ride as you may think. The clutch will stay disengaged when kicked back. You can sit at a light with it in gear and put both feet on the ground.
Starting on a hill takes some practice!
Once you master it....no problem.
Down shifting into a tight curve is a gas! .....so much fun to ride.

Yes, it has neutral.

Have 4 bikes currently, Yamaha XT 250, Ducati 1098, 09 HarleyRocker C and a Moto Guzzi Le Mans MKIV 1000.

Haven't ridden the old Guzzi for years but the other 3 are registered and get ridden. Just did the mirror delete on the Duke to replace the reindeer antlers they called mirrors. Bonus is that i can now see out of them.

Nice. Got a 2014 Bonneville. SUPER sad though that last year, our local Triumph dealer dropped Triumphs. Said there were 5 dealers in the state of Indiana as of 2017, but they all dropped Triumph due to Triumph being dumb with the process or something. Now the closest dealer is about 5-6 hours away I think.

So I haven't even seen what the new bikes look like. Yours looks different than what I've seen before.

So after two years of not owning a bike, I went and looked at one last night. The guy had OBO on his price, so I shot him an offer (not a lowball, 10% lower than his asking price) and he tells me that he's firm on his price. WTF? He's already $1k over NADA value.

I told him I'd think about it. Any advice on how to proceed, or should I walk away?

My former ride was an ivory BMW R1200C that belonged to Dave Abbruzzese of Pearl Jam before me:

Walk away, i would never pay over what the book value is. That guy is nuts.

I'm with you there, I'm not paying over book value. Just seeing if anyone has any advice on how to get the guy to come down, but I don't think it's happening. I'm going to call him back tomorrow and give him the same offer, then walk away when he turns it down.

I would probably just say the bank will only loan what the book value is. Id say im willing to give you that if you want it but i cant go any higher.

So, I tried this and the guy still didn't budge. No surprise there, so I moved on. A few days later he calls me back and says he's "willing to accept my offer". I told him that I've changed my mind, but I would do $1,500 less. He loses it over the phone. Tells me that my original offer and his now accepting of the offer is a verbal contract and that he could sue me, blah, blah, blah. His ad is still up and I'm still waiting to hear from his attorney.

In the meantime I did pick up this beauty. 2007 Ultra Limited. Burgundy and cream paint with gold. My wife and son absolutely love sitting back and riding with me.

As a young child, we rode on something similar. Often 3 of us on the one bike. How we didn’t burn our legs on the pipe, I will never know. So dangerous, but at the time it seemed like no big deal.
