    Buying 20 yr old bike? Pulling the trigger tomorrow, talk me down

    Maybe Buying a Corvette

    Since we're V-Max riders, I probably have some support in my desire to buy a Corvette. I really worship the car, even though I've only driven one for 4 days (long story). That one was a 2012 Grand Sport. It was fun, but I REALLY didn't like the auto transmission. It just felt powerless until you...

    Buying Tips?

    I'm going to look at a '92 VMax and want to know what to look for. It's got 41k miles on it. I know to check for slipping out of second gear. What else?

    Great buying experience!

    I ordered a few parts from them and have to say that their products and service is top notch! It does take a long time to get your order stateside, but they have no control over that. Cheryl kept me informed of my order status and quickly answered my questions. I'm looking forward to my next...
