Ya gotta wonder how it turns out that an 18 year old motorcycle only has 6K miles on it. Did the buyer have too much room in the garage and wanted a motorcycle to fill the space?

I always felt like I had a Garage Queen if I did not ride the bike more than six thousand miles a year but I have seen more than one riding buddy with bikes similar to this craigslist ad.

That's the problem. I've never owned more than 3 bikes at a time and am currently down to two. dopeslap

I'm at 4, and I really need to get down to two. The maintenance is what's killing me - I spend more time working on the things than riding them. Problem is these bikes come up on Craigslist and I get itchy fingers.

I have had three R1200Cs, a first year in ivory/brown which was my favorite, a 2004 with the dual plug and CL heavier setup which I disliked, and the euro colored one which I decided by then that memories of my first R1200C were rose colored
