PostAuthor: tattoowho? » Thu Jan 29, 2009 10:19 pm

well,i have truly enjoyed this site and and my virago, but my step-father passed away on january 15 and left me his 2006 honda vtx 1300r. he was a good man,a great friend and lead a long life,70 years. i'm selling my virago now, i can't really afford 2 bikes, and can't begin to consider selling his. it's a great bike, he added all the bells and whistles.hyper charger, v@h bigshots,all sorts of chrome. he believed in going all out. anyway, if anyones interested, i'm asking 2500 for my virago,1996, 18,000 miles and runs great. thanks for all your help and the endless hours of enjoyment i have had hear. ride safe. :beer:

Sorry to hear that brother. Sounds like he lived a great life. As for the Honda, whatever gets the wind in your face is a great ride imo. Good luck to you and yours. Jeff

I am really sorry for your loss, for you and your family. It sounds like he lived a full and great life.

I wish I could help you give your bike a good home. If I win the lottery, I'll ride out and take your love off your hands.

UNTIL NEXT TIME....... Stay safe.
ALWAYS stay safe

"It's ready for just about any sort of on-roading, and, best of all, in the process it can get the rider emotionally charged without ever needing to drag a peg or peg a redline. The Virago is a custom style bike with a wide range of capabilities. There is something very special that relentlessly compels you to just get on and ride- somewhere, anywhere

Had to come back to let you know my Virago sold today,I really have mixed emotions about that, :baw: but it's over now. I recomended this site to him, want to say thanks once more, and hope you all stay safe. Oh, and I found a cool VTX forum, so far the guys on it seem like good people too. Ride safe. :beer:

Good luck with your new ride tattoo?. Drop back in here sometime and say g'day, and let us know how you are going.
