I got off my "R" due to my hips & knees...just can't sit in that 'tight' position anymore for longer periods of time. Same with the "K". Checked out a cruiser & decided on the Vic. Been curious about them for awhile now.

BMW is much more popular on your end of the country...w/only 8K it should sell easily...I would think. Here in the Mid-West is HD country, as such mine might take some time. As I said it is an "04" w/33000 ABS & a few extras...Sargent seat, system bags,...that sort of thing.
I'm thinking of listing it for $6500 ? My "K" bike is a "project bike" I have it listed for about half that.
