    Looks nice, but may not be a recent picture.

    The lack of the required from CO license plate and the intact front license plate delete plate leaves me thinking something's not right about it...

    It was previously owned in Illinois and that state also has a front plate requirement so the pic doesn't have to be old. Maybe the owner just thought it looked better without the front license plate (I agree with him).

    You don't know what you don't know which is why you have someone go look. Experience has taught me that all VX leads (trucks, parts, mods, etc.) are worth chasing down. Never know when you'll find an overlooked gem.

    No need to worry, my standards are still high.

    I looked at a nice Foxfire when I bought my Dragon. It had about 69K on it and the guy was willing to take 10K.

    I can try and track him down and see if he still has it if you want. Had some nice mods and nothing too radical.

    Was it a 2001 owned by a guy named Homer, in Indiana? It came down to this one and mine and this guy wanted more, so I ended up going with the other one.

    Nope, its a local guy that is a second owner. Has a huge motorcycle collection and has been featured on Speed TV with it a few times...really cool guy.
