Default Just bought back my 04 599 Today!

Hey guys, I'm Back!

I traded my 599 last year for an 07 V Star 1300 as the lady and I were looking to do some touring. Well that didn't exactly work out and the guy I traded with had also decided to sell the 599 so I bought it back today

Here is a photo from last year before I sold it:


Here it is today:


He did change the turn signals and the tail light...which I don't like very much so they will have to go. As will the stick on gel tank thing all the frat boys put on their sportbikes. Other than that however, it's just a year older and has 1000 more miles (21k now). Still in great shape.

Happy to have her home.

Well this bike and I certainly have history. I bought it from a really good friend(who also owned the bike twice), rode it for a year and a half, got pushed out of my lane by an rv that didn't see me and rear-ended a van...went over the bars and faceplanted into the van (thanks to a full face I was fine). The bike only suffered a little cosmetic damage which I repaired with all new OEM parts and rode it another 6 months but much less often. I was almost scared of it. I ended up selling it because I didn't ride it much.

Better part of a year later, I'm looking at VFR's and the guy gets ahold of me and lets me know he wants to sell it. I rode a 99 VFR the day before yesterday and went to ride the 599 yesterday and decided I couldn't let the deal pass. I might end up selling it once again because I still would like a VFR but I'm happy to have her back for a little while and have the ability to once again make the deal that if the new owner wants to sell they have to call me first.
