Absolutely amazing!!! If I had the spare cash, I'd probably buy it just to have it, and be content (well, without having the Venturer I might not be).

I'm the owner. I don't ride it much anymore. Only put about 100 miles on it last year. It's in good condition. Not mint, but very good. I've always kept up on everything with it.

Howdy gents! Ran upto Saginaw after work (40 mph winds across I-75) and met with Matt (owner of this bike). The bike was just as amazing as the pictures.

Took it for a ride, and rode like it was on rails. Original exhaust and airbox gave it a very tight-fitting sound. I believe in quid-pro-quo, and handed the keys of my bike over to Matt, and let him go for a ride.

I spoke with Matt's lovely wife while he was out, and whatever I told her, convinced him to keep the bike, taking it off the market.

I'll head back up-there on Sunday to help him with the front brakes, and allow him and his wife the Summer to cruise.
