Thanks to a drunk driver, I was in a nasty car crash a couple weeks back and it's going to be months - lots and lots of them - before I can ride again. Horrible time of year to try to sell a bike, but ... I could use the money for upcoming medical bills 'til whatever happens with the lawsuit happens - which could take years. It's a 1995 Magna, yellow, ~17,000 miles. When I got it, it was all decked out in cruiser-typical fashion, and I mechanically returned it to (mostly) stock. Took off the forward controls, all the chrome stuff, etc. It has steel brake line, new pads, a Trailtech Striker digital gauge/computer in place of the stock gauges, and a Honda 919 headlight (much brighter and wider swath of light). Includes tail rack and a tail trunk. I can pull off the tail trunk and put the normal back rest back on if you like. Located in Northern Delaware, $2500, pretty firm but open to reasonable offers, obviously not interested in trades. Pictures are before I swapped out the headlight; the headlight assembly is now black and chrome and larger. No surprises with this bike; the Magna uses the 2nd(?) gen VFR 750 engine with chain cams rather than gear cams, and this one is a rather good example of one. It's not a chromed-out show piece; it's a rider's bike and in very good shape. For those out of the area, I can assist with delivery or meetup, likely in exchange for gas money (if necessary) and/or overnight accommodations (again, if necessary). I have a trailer and tow vehicle. I'm easy to work with.

This week the guys talk about the new Husq Nuda 900 in all its naked glory. How can a naked bike look more naked...? The Nuda gets it done. Costco goes Zero and brings the electric bike crazy to the Canadian public. What bike gets honorable mention in one category and wins a completely different category? Well, check out the top-10 list for 2011 from Motorcycle.com and learn the answer. But one question remains.... Is it a cruiser? Nissan takes heat for crashing bikes in a cartoon. Yeah... a cartoon. Things to get over: that. We have some excellent feedback this week and Jim Long asks for some Pace Podcast Opining DuJour on the Harley Switchback. In short: the guys like it.
