  1. I'm getting my Ls next week and am looking for my first cruiser!! My budget is around $7,500 and from what I've read, based on my size/weight, the XVS650 should be decent enough to learn on and eventually to commute (80% freeway, 30kms tops). To summarize:

    - XVS650 Classic or Custom
    - Not too old because I'm a n00b on bikes (I've run rally cars and do my own mechanical repairs on my Evos)
    - Mileage at 50,000ish kms max (I'm told these engines are good up till about 150,000kms before requiring a rebuild)
    - Located in Victoria preferably
    - Price at or around $7,500 including transport to VIC if not already there

    Thanks for your time!

    EDIT: If you can recommend another cruiser with similar power/weight in place of the Yamahas, I'd be willing to consider. As I said, I'm a n00b when it comes to bikes, but I'm willing to learn!
  2. :rofl: I thought from the thread title that you wanted 200 of them! Was trying to think what you could possibly so with 200 XVS650'S...

  3. *sigh* :LOL:
