    Thrstrmech, thanks I'll let you know if I decide to check it out. I'm kind of leaning towards not though, might hold out for a scg, wouldn't hurt to wait till after the holidays...

    Whenever I find the bike I am looking for, for a good price, it is far away...

    04's are as sound as they come. That is a great price as well. Pull the trigger and twist the throttle.

    Had an 04'. Loved it, should have never sold it, but had to get inside it. Clutch Ramp sheared off, had to fix that. Voltage reg needed changing. Other than that, 10k miles and they were all worth it.

    This XB12SCG in Florida really has me thinking.

    $600 in gas to pick it up in my truck
    $500 to ship it
    $145 for a plane ticket +$150 for gas in the bike

    Or wait for one a little closer...

    I appreciate the input on the 04 but I might pass on it. It's not exactly what I want and I know I would kick myself for not waiting for a SCG.

    Don't take a Buell older than 2009, otherwise you will fight with leaking gaskets, rubber components, bearings, electric wires and parts, plugs, rusted bolts and another bunch of different issues. I would recommend you take an XB12scg 2010, it has better rear wheel bearings solution.
