Default Another Cincinnati 599

Hey all...

I've been lurking for a while. I'm an avid 4-wheel Honda fan, and I've finally joined the ranks of 2-wheeled Honda owners. I've been an auto-crosser and road-racer for quite a number of years now. SCCA and 24hours of Lemons have been my flavor.

I rode a 1979 yamaha xs400 through most of the fall as my first bike, and waited for either a Hawk NT650 or a 599 to become available. Well, here I am... I found a 06 599 locally in great shape, less than 7000 miles and under $3000

Is that Ryan Olton's (rfoap) bike? I think he's the only other one in town.

No, I don't think it's rfoaps. I was interested in buying his, Barx, but I didn't have the cash 2 months ago when he was selling. I got this from a shop in Milford. I suppose It may be his... but not sure how to tell.




Edit - yeah, it's not his. his had almost 10,500 miles when he posted it.

Gotcha. There was a phantom third 599 in Cincy! Looks like you got a good deal. Don't be afraid to touch base if you need any info.

Nice bike Casey. When did Milford get a bike shop? I don't remember one when I lived there from 86-96. Were the pics taken at East Fork?

Sheesh, left ya hanging.

Milford doesn't have a bike shop. They have a used car lot on 28, just by 275. A guy traded it in on a car and it sat (apparently) for months without any takers.

These shots were actually snapped at Stonelick state park about 10 miles north of eask fork.
