2007 Yamaha VMax
 
Someone has offered to sell me one for what I feel is a decent price. As I said 2007, 4000 miles and $6000. Somebody talk some sense into me before I do something I might find awesome!

Did they ever fix the second gear issues on those bikes?

I've ridden them, (a friend had a 1989, same bike 85-08) it was fun for rolling burnouts, but handled poorly and heavy. Didn't stop that well. Blew second gear and he got rid of it.

The 2009 and up is a real beast at almost 700 lbs wet and 197 HP.

Low retail is $2800, average retail is $3700. $6000 ??? a lot too much if you ask me.

Ed, way too much money, better choices to be made out there.

When you own a spotter every other bike become a dust collector.

Ya I think I am going to pass. Timing is bad. I already have a bike I haven't finished and ridden (KZ 550). Plus I'm in the middle of a riding arena project that is dragging it's feet. And I just signèd a deal on a new truck that I haven't even taken delivery of yet.
