    Default Shopping for a bike, where should I look?

    We're looking for a nice touring bike for my wife and I. Other than Craigslist, are there other sites to find one?

    Well, we'd like something we can hop on every wknd and ride for the day, spend a night and ride home...so a scooter with hard bags aint gonna cut it..LOL.. Thinkin along the lines of a BMW, or Honda ST1300, ..etc I don't want a Harley, and I don't want something as big and bulky as an all out Goldwing. Id like something somewhat sporty, but a cruiser for the both of us that will ride comfortably for a day long ride without having to pull our undies out of our cracks every 10 miles. Something used, say in the $8k range, something with hard bags and back rest for her. I've owned a couple bikes, but nothing in the touring version.

    I think this one is a brand new carry over. http://www.peacockltd.com/new_vehicl...12&pov=1579751

    Don't rule out a Triumph Sprint or A Kawasaki Concourse, both are nice sport touring bike, Sprint maybe alittle to sporty but worth looking at, you can find both of those used in your price range. I traveled 200 miles earlier this year to get the deal I was happy with. none of my local dealers would even talk to me for what I bought mine for.

    Default Bike?

    My Future Son-in-law has a very, very nice 2000 Honda Valkyrie Tourer. Sounds like the cycle you're asking for. I am guessing he would sell it for around $7000. Has 12,000 miles on it. Excellent shape. It isn't really for sale, but he may be interested in selling for the right price. Black and red. Has windshield, touring saddlebags, and a backrest. They just did a 1400 mile trip with us and it ran great. Beauty, too. Central WI. If interested, let me know.
