Not trying to throw a blanket on the party, but a few things in those pictures kinda make me wonder about their 8 thousand miles only....First the seat????....I've seen seats that same color for sale here with that Wing it came off of having several thousands of miles more and not be worn like that one.....While it is clean as a whistle there are signs of wear that come with miles, not setting in a shed...So either they don't know or they just are trying to find a gullible buyer....??????... I could be wrong.....

True... Plus the second half set of pictures show lots of wear, like the fork tubes have little to no clearcoat left, the dash cluster looks pretty roughed up. Among other things. Definitely not a garaged bike, must have set outside quite a bit.

He'd have been far better off having it professionally detailed, instead of hosing it off in a garage and taking pictures before it even dried off.

That is being sold be Rawhide. They take donated old vehicles and use them to train and rehabilitate troubled youth. The vehicle is more than 10 years old and in Wisconsin that does not require an odometer verification (motorcycles).



My bet is that it is 108,000 miles rather than 8000....

The bike is wet, which always makes the paint look better! I don't think that $2500 is a good buy!

While I think Rawhide, as far as I have found out, is an honest group doing good things....I'm sure that they will find a buyer, but my advise would be buyer beware!!!!

Ya know, it is hard to tell. This appears to be a bulk seller, turning over inventory quickly... The condition of the exterior is rough but not for a 30 year old bike that may have spent a good deal of its time outside... from the engine shots, is that a new clutch cable and boot or original, worm drive clamps on the fuel line but carb line is original...Hard to see 108000 miles and look this good. I think it is a very bad way to advertise and certainly don't know not to spray the radio and cassette...





I would risk it at half the price, BUT YOU GUYS ARE AWESOME!!!!! I LOVE THIS GROUP! Put up a GL1100 advert for a collective scrutiny, You will be assured you are well informed before going ahead and buying it anyway! This is tempting, bad time to sell a motorcycle, bad way to present it, but 8300 miles is possible in WI and a very good candidate for being a donation! We'll see
