Like we stated, boards are a superb place to seek for a new-to-you used motorbike. Or automobile. Or no matter. Very usually talking, individuals who care sufficient to affix a discussion board care sufficient to take excellent care of their love object, and placing the factor up on the market on the discussion board could also be a approach of making certain it goes to an excellent house. When you’re fortunate. Some fora (that’s plural) even make you leap by a hoop or two to affix.

Retains out the riff-raff… however I saved after it and right here we’re.
It’s price it when you’re out there for a 2001 Ducati ST4, although. This one’s excellent for all y’all who loudly proclaim you don’t want no steenkin’ electronics, and who poopoo bikes with extreme horsepower.

It’s all the time powerful to inform from a number of photographs, however this Duc seems to have led a sheltered life in a big suburban storage, displaying simply 25,000 miles on the ripe age of twenty-two years, and nonetheless carrying its birthday exhausts.
Upkeep-wise, the previous ST4 isn’t going to be the most cost effective sport tourer to run, however protecting on prime of belts and desmo valve changes and no matter needs to be much more doable when the price of entry is simply $4000 or thereabouts. Let the haggling start. She’s in Tullahoma, Tennessee, semi Nashville-adjacent. You would have a pleasant journey house from there, wherever you might be.
