Thinking about buying a V-Star...
New guy here, just making my introductory thread but also seeking a little info and advice at the same time. Currently riding an '07 Honda Shadow Spirit 750. Bought it a couple months ago without doing much research and found it wasn't much for 2-up much longer than an hour. 3 weeks after I bought it, my Dad bought an '05 V-star 1100 which I like much better on the highway.
Fast forward, looking at buying an '08 V-Star 1300 Tourer with 4500 miles for $4k. Found one on CL with only a small dent in the gas tank. My first question is, this is a good deal right? I know it is according to KBB and NADA but I like to have others confirm it. Also, when I go to look at the bike...is there anything that tends to be problematic with this bike that I should be on the lookout for? He did have Cobra drags on it but they started to blue so he took them off and reset the fuel back to stock. Any ideas or heads up things would be VERY appreciated.
With my Dad riding a Star and my Father-in-Law with 70k+ on his V-Star 650...it's probably just time for me to join in.
