Hey there Everyone. I'm considering buying a XB600 and had a few questions.
first off, i've seen them advertised on the internet for around $1000. some are in the 800's but charge about a buck fifty for shipping, and then some are in the 900's but shipping is free. some people posted in this thread about getting one for about 750 or so. was that including shipping? and where can i find one for this price?
Secondly, how hard are the mods that you guys post? could someone such as myself who's never even held a soldering gun pull of that shunt mod thingie? it looks a bit intimidating, but if i get one of these bikes, i know i'm gonna want to do this to it.
and third, there seems to be a bunch of posts about people running into johnny law and having problems. I already have my license suspended and don't need anymore encounters with the local PD. Would you say that the look of this bike makes it a magnet for situations with the law?
and i guess last but not least, how do i convince girls that i meet that i'm totally that environmentalist guy instead of the guy who lost his license and has to get around on a bike? please tell me i don't need to wear sandles, i really don't like sandles. haha.
anyway, you all seem very knowledgeable and i appreciate any responses to this post
