    So I was getting on my 2004 tw wed at the post office and a guy came up to me and asked if I might be intrested in a couple more tw,s.

    Today I went to look at and test ride them. 1st bike 1995 825 miles clean and streight everything works, runs ok but I can tell the carb needs cleaned. 2nd bike 2002 1101 miles condition same as the first and both have clear titles. So I ask how much and he says $650 each or $1200 for the pair. Composing myself I looked at the bikes closely for about as long as I could (30 seconds mabey) and then said I thought that was a fair price

    Darn good deal. And here I thought I got a good deal on a new front tire. Good for you!
