I fail to see the connection here my friend. A 09 harley dresser for $11K? It might be a good deal in some circles, but then again it's chicago in the dead of winter too. Bikes tend to get cheap when the weather is cold when a car wold be more desirable.

I liked the HD
But I Loved the Trailer. Wow , that is really like a fifth wheel for a bike. Need lots of torque to pull that around

I have been looking at touring bikes and that one just came up, it looks like a well taken care of machine for a decent price.
The trailer is cool looking but it would make me nervous hauling in the wind or up in the mountains, I wonder if the trailer has brakes?

That is a neat looking trailer. I didn't even notice it when I first glanced at the ad. Just imagining the extra 500-1K lbs pushing you down a wet road when some dipstick pulls out in front of you. I doubt the trailer has brakes, but it might. 40K miles on a 10 year old bike seem to be high miles to me, but perhaps not too bad on that model. Some might consider it just broke in. :-) lol

I have trouble keeping my bike upright some days (without a trailer) , such as last week when I had to run to NAPA in the slush / rainy snow to replace the Chinese Delphi OEM fuel pump that didn't make 15K miles.

40 ,000 miles on that bike is not bad at all.
My friends have from 75 to 120 thousand on some of their HDs with little or no issues. Just do normal maintenance and chug along forever.
My brother hauls a trailer like that from Michigan to Sturgis and back with his dresser with no problem. But his trailer is a box.
Not a beauty like the one shown 11 Grand for bike and trailer is a fair deal

I always feel like we are kind of cheating when we trailer the bikes out to a beautiful area to camp, we have done a bunch of 1 or 2 night trips on the bikes before but riding at highway speeds 1200 miles one way with no windshield is a trip unto its self :S Plus its nice to go somewhere and stay comfortably for a week in a big tent on cots with a heater :P
a bike and trailer like that could probably get us there.

I tend to agree on the cheating thing. When I went to Sturgis in 79 we hauled the bikes and all of our camping gear in a van, and slept in it too. It was a pretty wild night in the campground with some crazy fkrs partying and raising cain all nite.

Now days a lot of folks drive a nice pusher diesel with internet, dish, full kitchen and a fully stocked workshop in the box trailer.

What ever happened to strapping on a sleeping bag with a gas can hanging off the back? This is the exact way I migrated to the lou from a north iowa farm town on my harley. I had to have a gas can, because coffin tanks just don't hold much gas, and those cheap petcocks do not have a reserve . :-)

And another drug crazed idiot with an old kaw sitting in a NC cow pasture has some rather high expectations of a TOTALLY neglected bike. smh

Mad Max? The bikes I remember from that movie were much nicer than this POS.

$4K?, I wouldn't pay more than $400.00 for that one. It does say runs good and clear title, but i would have to see that before I believed it.

The price seems a bit steep for a non-running bike but it has awesome paint, and claims a clean texas title, sooo since it's in Ohio, I am assuming that the owner's name is not on the title. God only knows.. at least figure max title penalties as far as legalities on it.

What i don't really understand is why would someone go to all of the trouble to accumulate and paint all of these nice / rare parts, then never assemble it? That just does not register as a sane person. lol :pinch:

What a deal! And here I passed on a ragged out Kaw 1300 here in the lou for $1500.00. Just think of the serious money I could have made! They must be getting some REALLY POTENT drugs in Tx! lol

I would think that anyone with $650,000.00 to spend on ANYTHING would have half of a brain. It may be one of those trolls that constantly contact people trying to sell a vehicle running the ad? Of course they are contacting ME from a free ad, trying to get me pay them to advertise it with their own FREE ads. :evil: smh Cycle Trader?
