Hi everyone, Looking at an 07 Kingpin Blue/white with just over 10,000 miles. Anything I should look for, it looks really clean. I'm currently riding a Vulcan 900 Custom and was looking for something a little bigger for longer rides.

Although I am not one, there are many KP owners and ex owners who can testify that its a mighty fine bike. If you've been lurking, you know we are a kind and helpful bunch here, so don't hold back with questions.
As far as what to look for, its the same as you would for any bike; wear signs, proper clutch adjustment, even tire wear, air pressures, oil level (checked hot, bike vertical) belt condition, rust spots, rust in tank, scored discs, service records/log, and so on. If there's a banging in the front end when you hit a bump, the steering head bearings are loose.

Well, looks like I'm pulling the trigger on this. Hope to have it home by Saturday if the weather holds out.

Well, finally got to go for a ride on the new bike this weekend due to the nice weather we've been having. Here's a few pics. Just turned 11,000 on my way to work today.
