Anybody wanna Meanie?

I'll post this in the sell or swap section as well. I wanted to post it here too because we ALL know what a pain in the balls it is to ship a motorcycle. I'm sellin' the Meanie.

2002 Kawasaki Mean Streak 1500
I have to check on the mileage - still ridin' the sh!t out of it.
It's fuel injected, in great shape, mostly new tires, no dents, no dings, never been down.
It comes with a reaper fender for the front, a full size easy-on easy-off windshield, luggage rack, and passenger back rest.
All the tools are in the tool box and everything works - all lights, brakes, levers, switches, even the self-canceling turn signals work. There is nothing wrong with this bike. The color is candy gold spark, it's like a deeper burnt orange. I get talked up in traffic all the time and people often ask about the color - she's a head turner for sure.

I'm asking $4500 which is more than fair. That said, I'm open to negotiations as long as low balling is not part of your negotiation strategy. "Why are you selling the Meanie Mike, you LOVE that bike!" I know I know - but I'm looking to get either get a Victory or an Indian and I don't want 2 motorcycles in the garage at the same time. I figured I'd give my buddies here first crack at her.

You can also PM me anytime. Here are a couple pics, just ignore the scrawny tool-shed in the second one:

Why are you selling the meanie?
Don't tell me the wife made you sell it.....unless you are getting another bike.

I will ask around and let you know if anyone local is interested. I know you, and I know you take good care of your bike, so no doubt the bike is in great shape and would be a good deal for anyone to buy it.

Too bad it isn't Blue....
I really like the Meanie, almost got one instead of my 900. Good luck, should be an easy sell this time of the year.

Do you also have the sport bike still? I can understand going for the Victory as I hoepe to do the same at some point this season. I believe the Victory would be much better for 2 up riding besides. Good luck.

I do not still have the sportbike. I sold that to my twin brother who gave it to his wife for her birthday.

Do you mean the Victory will be better for 2 up riding compared to the VN750 or compared to the Meanie? I assume you mean compared to the VN750 but I'm just curious, maybe you know something about the Victory's 2 up capabilities that I don't know...

Now I think I remember you mentioning the selling of the sport bike to your twin.

I have no real hard evidence to quote on the 2 up capabilities of the Victory directly over the Meanie or the 750 but from my test rides of the Victories and talking to several Victory owners I am told that Victory's are very strong and comfortable with reserve power to spare for 2 up riding. The comfort level is also suppose to be pretty high. I love the feel of the full size models in the touring group. I am still looking to trade my 750 soon and move up to a Victory this season. Starting in 2012 they went with the 106 cubic inch motor with a 6 speed trans. I am totally hooked on the capibilities of the Victory and may even consider taking passengers on that but I will never do it on the 750 although I know it is very cabable of doing so. There is just a very different feel with the Victory. Much more solid and balanced ride in my personal opinion.

and always remember, "Ride until you rot!"
