Well I've decided to put the trike up on the auction block. Spent the day cleaning it up . Then I had the wife and daughter follow me out on the highway so that I could put up some action shots with my ebay listing to show that it is a rider and not a yard ornament.

I'm already feeling a bit sad about selling it but I've decided to thin the heard. I'm just tired of sending checks to the DMV and the insurance man and I'd like to get a dual sport so somethings going to go.

After just one hour posted on ebay and its already got 4 viewers. I hope it sells well.




On another note the guy at the bike shop said that if I put the Concours back together he would like to buy it. Decisions, decisions....

The trike has some good old Mad Max flavor to it, going to be interesting to see what it brings.

I can relate with the decision thing, whatever one you make will be the right one.

Thanks for posting, best of luck!!!

$2425.00 is pretty good money in these times.

Nice to hear it went to a good home.

Can't wait to see what you buy next!

Mostly interested in the KLRs....there are a lot of them here, as there are so many backroads and logging roads.

Looks like a great bike there Kirk!

You know the routine, do the maintenance required ASAP (valve clearance inspection/adjustment). I'm sure Terry would be willing to help out.

I've owned a few 400's of the same basic design, and they all required a wonderful starting process. If you did not do one of the several steps exactly right, including holding your mouth just right, it would not start easily.

If all was good, and the earth and moon and everything else in the universe was in phase, one kick was all it would take.

Anyway, I bet that bike is high on the smiles per gallon!!!

Steve,
As you know starting is a process. But as long as I do it right it starts without issue. Fortunatly I live on a big hill so on mornings when I'm lazy, like this morning, I just bump start it. After that it starts pretty easy as long as I let it warm up first. If I just start it, run down to the store and shut it off its a bear to start.

I ordered a manual for it and as soon as it shows up I'm going to do all the maintainence stuff. Right now I just check chain, tires and oil.

I always thought the starting process helped build the connection between one and the machine. Added character to the bike. The powerband was extremely enjoyable.
