    [QUOTE=Brillot2000;194107][SIZE=3]I just bought one of these bikes a few days ago on my birthday for $3,200. I found it in Crestline, CA. I washed and waxed it after getting it home.

    With only 16k miles, and at $3,200......me thinks you "stole it". What a great deal (assuming nothing needed replacing.....tires, brakes, fluids). Job well done!!!

    It was about 16.4k when I picked up the bike. I am very pleased with it...

    New tires and brakes all around. Nothing else needed really, just a tank of gas to get me going down the road. However, most of the black textured body panel pieces are heavily sun damaged and would not be restored with Mother's Back To Black. I decided to use a can of semi gloss black of Rustoleum to address most of those pieces. I may eventually replace some of the heaviest damaged parts later on. You couldn't tell from those pictures that many of these parts were painted.

    This bike is to replace the 2015 Zero SR that I had that went south on me.

    Not to put any salt into many people's wounds out there. The owner had it posted on Craigslist for $3,950. After we spoke over the phone and us meeting in person, he dropped the price to $3,200 immediately. I was not pushing him or nothing. I guess he liked me and saw that the bike be going to a good home and will be cared for.

    It has been over a week since I got this bike and I began to love within the first 3 days of riding it.

    Here are a few pictures that were taken at a rally I went to the day after getting her.

    The best $3,200 that I spent on a motorcycle.

    The NT is a great looking bike. I have a red one and I was thrilled to get it. I think it is quite a bit more bike than the NC but since I got the NC I mostly ride the NC. It feels so easy to handle that I actually feel safer on it. The low cg and dct are big bonus points for me. The NT is by far the more comfortable on long trips and I think the better looking bike. Hope you have lots of fun trips. They are very reliable.

    Thanks. I got this bike replace a Zero SR that I had that went kaput on me in only two years after buying it new. The Lemon Law helped me to get the factory to purchase it back from me.

    I am sure that this bike will be trouble-free and will last me for many years to come. NaTalie is now on full-time commuter service for at least 4-days a week. Then I will rotate my other two bikes in as needed.

    The NC is also a great bike however, the NT has superior wind protection and looks a lot bigger on the highway. I have had NaNCy for 3 years now and she only has over 13k on the odometer. The Zero helped to keep the miles down on her. I got 23k on that bike before it went fully south on me.

    I look forward to racking up the miles on NaTalie and the journeys ahead.
