    Well, after 7 years of ownership it is time to say goodbye to my 1995 Vmax. I reluctantly sold it yesterday, the first person to see it snatched it up at full asking price (I was kinda hoping they would try to lowball me and I could hold onto it a bit longer, but unfortunately not).

    I want to thank all the wonderful :worthy:members :worthy:eek:n this forum for assisting me in transforming my stocker into the machine pictured. It was a long and sometimes frustrating road, but the good folks here kept me on the straight and narrow! I wish all the best in your future Vmax adventures!

    I'm still riding, but wont share what as I'm afraid of the relentless, yet warranted, mockery :rofl_200:

    Take care & ride safe,

    Frank

    No reason to leave, Frank... Even if you bought a Harley.

    It will be easy to catch him, just ride up on a Vmax! Trap sprung!!!:biglaugh:
    No need to leave just because you no longer own a Vmax!

    Yea why not. I’m sure while on that it’s still considered riding. How do you like it so far?

    Nothing wrong with a Can Am at all.

    I almost bought one last year. Wife was thinking of selling her bike and going back to being a passenger, so the Can Am was a good choice for us for long distance riding.

    In the end, she decided to keep riding her bike, so I didn't get the Can Am.

    Would be interested in a ride review after you have put a few miles on yours.

    Well...It's VERY different from the typical motorcycle, but VERY much like a 4-wheeler or snowmobile (I own those as well)...more like a sled on wheels...same ridiculous low to mid grunt and less on top...It's very stable, tracks well (when you replace the stock Kenda fronts) and is comfortable to drive. Mine is a semi-automatic...didn't think I'd dig it but I do (it downshifts automatically or you can do it manually)...it has a lot of storage...so more practical for me overall...

    Slingshot. I think it would be sweet if it were four wheeled.
