Mel, I have a friend that has an '07 900cc Kaw Vulcan Classic with 8,000 miles. He priced it to me for approx $4,900.00 if this would fit your needs.

Sorry, Bernie, but that's too rich for my blood..... I need a "throwaway" bike, something $1500 or lower.... if I can get comprehensive insurance, I might just send my ST over, and bring it back; if I can't get comprehensive, just liability, I'll send over something that won't break the bank if I lose it.....something I don't care much about, or at least, something I don't care about too much..... You can help by finding me a battered ST1100 or a Nighthawk under 2g's......

I bet - with your ingenuity - you could make this into a backrest for Red and get some exercise when you camp...

Or, cheaper/smaller yet... I think I have an old 3-pack of these hand crank lights that I got from costco - I know you could do this mel - for charging your mini electronics...

Hey CJ¬* ... they look like a nifty hook-up.¬*¬*

I use a co-axial one for my heated gear¬* ...¬* but¬*¬* .... I carry a 1 w Solar panel that hooks up with the older style SAE connector, that I use for my Batery Tender. My main use for it(Solar Panel)¬*is when I'm running my¬*sound system¬*at camp, it helps to maintain/charge the battery.

If you wire one of those connectors directly to your battery,¬*you can borrow that if need be, to help replenish some 'juice', at camp.While it only pumps out 1 w, it does so in either full sun, or in total overcast conditions. Some charge is better than none.¬*¬*

Hey Dusty,
Where did you find that solar panel? I like that set-up!

Naw..... I thought I'd just get a couple of these..... glue em' on the top of our helmets! Heck, if I ride fast enough, and if I put electric motors in the sidecases, I just might create the first Honda ST1300 Hybrid!
