    OOPs!.. I spilled my beautiful Max!

Hagerty paid promptly on my zero-deductible and now I'm having difficulty locating some of the parts I need for this one. In particular, the original right side crash bar with the...

    Pre-VMAX Owner - about to buy

    Hi Experts and Gurus, I have my lustful eye on a 96 VMAX 1200. It's been holed up near a beach but still looks good and rides well. Registration has run out. What do I have to look for to ensure I do not buy a lemon? Thanks for you help.

    Would you buy one of these?

    Hello fellow Vmax owners. I am getting ready to run a batch of new VMAX hats and wondering everyone's opinion on the hat. I've mocked up a few colors with embroidery, but I plan to use the original font which will be digitized off the first hat shown here. Please let me know your thoughts...

    To sell or not? Someone buy it!

    So I made a post about what happened to my bike, the only severe portion of which was an electrical fire around the ignition, and somehow they didn't total it. With that said, Morley says he can get me the parts I need for around 150-200 from what I remember. With that, the bike has a ton...

    With new Gen2s available for $15K or less, at what point is it better to buy new?

    This is a spinoff of my other thread. I've been shopping pretty hard for a Gen2. I've found '10s listed for as little as $11K and I've seen several low-mile '14s go for around $12K on Ebay. It kind of seems like a no brainer--a '14 for $12K makes better sense than a '10 for $11K, since the...

    Would you be hesitant to buy a bike that's been "stored" like this?

    I'm in the market for a Gen2 Vmax. I found a '10 with only 4000 miles. The seller said he bought it used in '11 with 3K, and has only put about 1000 miles on it in four years. He says the bike has been kept covered in a storage unit. I asked if he uses fuel stabilizer and he said no, but...
