VMF welcomes you and congratulates you on a great purchase! Is the exhaust a early UFO setup? I do like that style of clamping the cans vs the welded on bracket of Marks.

Great deal and congrats!

On a side note: Man I just don't understand many motorcycle owners... how in the HELL does someone own a VMax and only put 8k miles on it? Do they just use the Vmax to get their mail at the end of the driveway? I put 3k miles on my Vmax in the first 3 weeks I had it. But it's not just the Vmax... I see low mileage bikes on CL all the time. It's like they bought a motorcycle just look at. I don't get it.

Haha. I hear ya. I got kids too. Yea my weekends are often spent in a cage playing taxi to kids going from game to game. But if I got time, I hit the road... even if its just for an hour. I dunno. I just feel like I can put a thousand miles on the bike without even trying.

Couldn't agree more, ya done great on that bike! And yep, the 07' is the quickest! Haha, welcome and super nice Max.
8 k, it seems sad when you say it out loud, these machines are definitely happiest when there's bugs in their scoops!
Ride on all.

I'd think he'd have upped the mileage by now, hopefully. And it's been well taken care of.

Talk about not riding these things, I got my '96 last year with only 3,500 miles on it! The guy had it sitting in his garage for 8 years because it was "too scary to ride!" A good CL find that only cost me $4k!
