    well did something stupid today. as some of you know i have had my zl for sale here in canada
    not prob to many of your surprise without much luck.
    most people don't know what they are.
    i just had the duck bill and tail repainted because i did not like the way they turned out during the first repaint
    (shrink marks) BIKE LOOKS BETTER THAN EVER
    anyway washed and took it for a ride today.runs perfect screaming fast and perfectly reliable. is it ok to only put a hundred miles a year on the bike, cant find a proper owner i think i should just keep it. thoughs 20200517_153233.jpg 20200517_153222.jpg 20200517_150618.jpg 20200517_153222.jpg

    It's really ok to keep her, she is a beauty.

    I'd recommend getting out for at least an hour's ride per month, you know, for therapy.

    You won't be able to replace it for what you sell it for if the time comes that you want one again.

    I agree with all that's been said......Keep it and enjoy your hundred miles a year! I haven't ridden my red one in 5 years.

    And sometimes there is regret of the one that got away. You listed Nasty for a great price and I should have trucked on over to pick her up. Aaahhh, she is where she belongs:D. Hope you both find some time to enjoy them.

    I sold my 1000 about 4 years ago. Instant Regret! Ended up buying it back this winter a little more rough than before. I should have kept it and would have treated her a little nicer.
