First Yamaha Ever

Horror story nightmare leads me to a Yamaha.

Bought a 2003 Honda Shadow Sabre for $2k. NOT running, but only 4100 miles and in outward appearance, a pretty nice bike.

Dealer quotes $3200 to repair and bring back to road worthy condition.

I declined. (hahaha)

Buddy at the Harley shop heres my story and gets me i nto a 2009 Yamaha 950 Tourer with 13k miles for $4500.

Very pleased and will post about our first ride this weekend.

Welcome to the 4M.

So what do you figure you'll get back selling or parting out the Honda? To me it seems $2k is a huge 8-ball to be stuck behind. Hope you can recover most or all or even better make a few dollars.

My buddy at work is a shade-tree mechanic. Will do what he can and sell to split profit.

Hopefully I can break slick.
