    Default 2018 Star Venture Transcontinental

    Sale Pending.

    Well, it is with mixed emotions that I have decided to sell the '18. I love this bike but having owned it for a little over a year and putting only 1173 miles on it, I've decided to let it go. If things get better next year, I'll possibly look at getting another one but at this time, I'm thinking that my riding days may be coming to an end. It's not just the minor physical things, I just don't seem to have the passion that I once did.

    So, 2018 Star Venture with Transcontinental package. All the goodies that come with the Transcontinental plus Utopia backrest, Corbin passenger backrest, truck rack, saddlebag lid guards, highway pegs, custom tank bib/chap with stingray insert, ROX handlebar risers, Yamaha truck rack bag, Hitch Doc trailer hitch with electrical connection plug and play wiring harness (wiring harness not yet installed). That's a little over $2,000.00 worth of extras.

    Asking price is $18,000.00. Close offers will be considered.

    Beautiful bike, hope you get your asking price. I get what you mean about "passion" struggling with the same feelings. Hopefully next year is a better year for both of us.
    Take Care, Craig

    In the same space in time here my brother,,, in my case I just pin it all under the "Sucks Gettin Old" sign hanging in my heart.. One cool thing about us though = had a dream last night that I was wheelying uphill in the snow/dirt on a tricked out CR125 trying to find my way back to a party in the parking lot... That "dream" of days long gone by would not even be there had it not of happened that way,,, in other words = living life large has it's memory rewards! You did a GORGEOUS job (as always) putting that GORGEOUS scoot together in prep for someone who has the time, passion and energy to have/build some wonderful CTFW memories aboard it. I have seen it,, SHE IS A BEAUTY!! All the very very best in your sale here my brother and to the lop eared varmint who is fortunate enough to aquire your work of motorcycling art!!

    I was a bit excited when I first heard about it. But completely turned off by it after seeing the final product.

    Many of us understand.
    I don't ride a lot but I will keep at least one old bike to ride when I feel like it. Same thing with my boat. I have a 98 18' Boston Whaler that I don't use much but it's fun when I do. Sort of the same with my 2002 F150 4x4 and 2005 hemi powered Magnum. It's fun to ride out on the beach even though I have the Hemi Magnum to drive too. I'm an aging hot rodder from the 60's and I still enjoy the power that hemi has. That's the reason I don't buy new stuff any more since I retired. It would cost too much to keep so many toys that I don't use that much. But they aren't worth that much any more and they are fun when I feel like enjoying them. I probably will sell one or two of the bikes within the next year though, after I decide which one(s)?

    Wow! That was quick. It usually takes a while to sell a motorcycle but you never seem to have that problem.

    Not a done deal yet. Logistics is the biggest problem. Should know more later today.

    Appears at this time that the deal fell through. The guy couldn't get the time off to come get it. I've offered to meet him half way but I'm re-listing it until I have a deposit.
