Picked this bike up on September 24th, it'd gone through a couple friends with life changes forcing sales, when I decided to purchase it had sold from second friend to random buyer due to money issues forcing a quick sale. Decided to browse craigslist, kid whom bought it listed bike next day in quick attempt to flip. Showed up with cash, kid lied saying he had owned it a year and a half while it'd been a week then acted as if such statement was a mistake and "he flips so many bikes". I disclosed the purchase date and price, let him make a couple hundred and came home with the bike I've wanted and knowledge of it's solid history. Insured it the next day, scheduled my riding test for the following Saturday and received my endorsement.

Only "issue" bike had was the signals flashed so fast they appeared solid due to the integrated rear and flush-mounts, prior owner speculated it needed a new rear taillamp, however research on here pointed to relay. Local shop ordered "plug-n-play" relay for me, yeah might have been for an '05
