out of curiosity... why buy a new one? you could buy an already broken in one and save sooooooooooo much money and you're not really losing hardly anything in the deal

well I would have to find a used one at a dealer to finance, because I'm not going to have the cash to outright buy something.

I'm pretty uneducated when it comes to loans and all that, because I try to avoid buying things that I can't afford. I guess it may be time to start looking into it

Either case I want to wait until early 2013 once my life smooths out and I can set myself up with some sort of savings

Valid question. It's rare to find a used bonneville on craigslist around my area (even though I live by the largest dealer in california) I'd estimate a new bonneville popping up on craigslist occurs once a month and usually not in the color/model/year I want. On top of that the few bikes that do come up are priced in the same range as brand new ones because they retain so much resell value. Maybe if it's different elsewhere but that's what the market looks like here.

semi-proud of myself for not going out on the bike today. Sunny and in the 40s, but still icy.

I do that with ebay all the time... just look at the gems in the middle of nowhere that I wouldn't feel safe purchasing sight unseen.

I like simple bikes as well. That bike reminds me of what royal enfield is putting out with their modern bullets. I sat on one a few weeks back and wasn't too impressed with how it felt but there's something cool about having a bike that you could fix up with whatever tools you have lying around.

I watched this awhile back on pipeburn. If I didn't know any better I'd want to buy an old trident and go on my own desert adventure. Anyone ever ridden street bikes where there's a lot of dust/dirt? The traction must be be awful on turns. Due to living in a city I've never done any dirt biking or dual sporting so I'm a novice about that kind of stuff.

Rode for the first time in a year and a half today, really sparked my interest in ridding again. Shedding some excess photo gear then buying a new bike. You ever find a shovelhead Scott? I am looking for one myself now. :ph34r:

Not yet, no. Probably won't buy anything for a couple months with it being winter and all. Going to keep saving and waiting patiently until something near perfect for what I want comes along.

ive made the decision that im going to start saving for a motorcycle from this point on, i saw this and saw some potential for only 350.

im planning on buying one this year or something like that and just working on it till im 18, my dad said that he doesnt want me having a motorcycle because they're dangerous. but he said he doesnt give a shit after i turn 18 so i figured i could just ride it down my street and back and learn to ride again (i rode dirt bikes when i was little).

i don't even care what i think, thats why im so sucessful
