Default yamaha virago

Anyone ever had one? Thoughts? May have a pretty good line on a clean 1100 for a great price. Less than 10k miles.

I had a 750 Virago. Plenty of power & great on fuel. Mine ended up losing oil flow to the head & snapped a rod which took out a cylinder due to a bad oil pump. Other than that it was a fun bike. Bought it as a project. What year?
Ive been looking at older Vmax bike recently myself. Always wanted one.

I looked at a '94 Virago 1100 up at PIkes Peak Motorsports yesterday with 25k on it, bags & a windscreen. Said I could have it for $1400. Id probably offer $1000 & see where it goes.

One I was looking at after being told by one half of the couple that I had the first choice to by it didnt communicate it to the other one and she sold it to a guy that showed up with cash while I was 8n a business trip. Too bad cause it was cherry.

That sucks. I had a line on an '85 Yamaha Maxim back up in MN for $500, the guy let it sit for 2 yrs in his garage & it looked damn nice for the price, didnt last 6 hrs on CL. I really want a VMax so Im holding out for one I can afford or fix up a bit.

Had a 87 1100 with the gold trim package. Best darn bike I had for some time. Loved the way it cruised. Did have a issue with the carbs and backfires.

I just picked up a 99 Kawasaki Vulcan 800 Classic for a freakin steal. Ive seen others out there starting for $2500 & up. Nailed down this one as a project (non running) & some questionable registration/title issues for $900. Just got it all squared away & have been riding it last few days to work. Most comfortable damn bike Ive EVER ridden. Power aint too bad either with the jet kit.
