We found my brother a starter bike. The vtx we checked out was a waste of time. All custom if you remember the orange one with checkered flags paint and rake. He never cleaned it and the oil reservoir had a crack and was leaking oil. We offered 4500 but no dice. Found a nice 2002 Yamaha vstar with only 8000 miles for $3000 for him to learn on before upgrading to an X. Anyone know of a good forum for him to buy parts and find technical stuff?
