My Roadster will be showing over 97K when I get home from Colorado. if a Sportster is worthless at 35.5 K, I guess I should pay for someone to take it from me?

Not a freakin' chance, Bucko.

I would say it used to be owned by a guy with young kids and not much time to ride. Am I right?

the guy I bought it off is an old'ish farmer and said he's retiring from biking but he wasn't the original owner. don't know anything about the previous owner though ? I did get it at a good price though and it in excellent condition.

97K? Boy that thing is just plane worn out and shot. I'll do you a favor and take it off your hands and won't even charge you a disposal fee

What a generous offer! I'll tell you what; I'll consult my lawyer and if he advises me to do it, I'll get a new lawyer!
