eBay moto finds that aren’t Tracers

Recommended Posts

A thread to drop interesting motorcycles found for sale online (eBay, Craigslist, et al) 

My thumb has been hovering over the ‘Buy It Now’ link on this VTR1000 Superhawk.  Somebody please buy this thing so that I don’t... :)

@rustyshackles - I saw your post about the Bandit 1250, but it seems to have disappeared temporarily.   Nice bikes... I’ve ridden an early model Bandit 1200, but never one of the new liquid-cooled 1250s. Looks like a really fun bike!

Yeah,  I deleted, thinking a 2016 Bandit wasn’t interesting/unique enough for the thread.  I do like the bike and it would be on my short list to replace my 2015 FJ-09. I’m not ready for a change yet but made the mistake of reading and watching Tracer 900 GT reviews...

Ha!  I see what you did there, @BBB...  :)

I’ll keep checking back on it periodically, but for now it’s still not for sale.   Which is either good or bad, depending on your perspective...

I think anything that catches your eye qualifies here.   It’s interesting to see what everyone has an interest in.

I had the same problem with this bike. Asked the boss, my friends, techs at work to talk me out of it. I already had a ZRX1100 i didn't need another 1100. BUT I wanted it........and dang it I bought it. Rode it like a stole it for 7 years and sold it. Great bike for something that zips right up to 150 MPH. Ole mans crotch rocked with handle bars. Yes those are handle bars on the ZX11 Ninja. My sport tourer before I wanted something lighter, in walks the FJ.

Besides, no matter how much stonk my engine has I'm still an old, slow guy. Takes more than horsepower to fix that.

@tktplz - Nice setup with the conventional bar on a ZX11!   That left-exit Muzzy pipe is nice, too... :)

This Monster Evo 1100 tortured me for about 3 weeks before it finally sold and put me out of my misery. Boy I wanted it bad. DFBBBD56-15CC-455E-A458-E12BA0C3AF8E.thumb.jpeg.fe29b868495ee0b32524a41492dcb007.jpegDED0BCC3-D5B9-4A64-8837-86EBF411C06D.thumb.jpeg.a1c3c51d58df4fa29fcb812bebf986f1.jpeg

Yes Ducati does make pieces of art as well as nicely done motorcycles. Aprilia Tuonos do the same thing to me. Doesn't matter, early V Twins to now a monster V-4 and still in the 400 something pound weight. Just does something inside, ya-know?

Oh really?  Perhaps I could interest you in a smoking deal on a Gen-1 Mille R?    You could put dirt bike bars on it & take off the lower fairing, then pretend it’s a Tuono...  :)

This is a BMW R9T, somewhat rare around here.   It would answer some of my lack of enthusiasm for later BMWs boxer twins - of which I've owned many - developed over a long time with them.   They were becoming too complex, too heavy, too expensive, too fragile..

This variation goes back in time: other than ABS there are no electronics on this bike - no cruise-control, no mode selections, no adaptive cornering lights, no traction control, just pure bike.   At only 785mm its seat height would suit me - no need to become a gymnast to easily climb on and off - and its relatively low weight of 220kg fully-fuelled and low c of g would help with stability.   Visually, it's pretty quirky, and somewhat derided as a poseurs's bike, but I like it very much.

@wordsmith - I personally really like the looks of the R9T, although I’ve never ridden one.    

It was the R1200C of 20-ish years ago the still stands out in my mind as the huge BMW misfire...
