Almost pulled the trigger...

I almost pulled the trigger on this 2003 Buell XB9S Lightning with 10,000 miles this week. Found it on Craigslist, and it's cheap ($2600), looks good in the pics, the owner says it runs good, and I've liked Buells since I first saw one years ago. I talked myself out of it though, because it's 15 years old, an hour away, the weather sucks this week, is a 5 speed, and I'm worried that I may be buying someone else's problem. I can't help but think I should get it anyway though.

Wow that bike is in pristine condition for its age. Might have been problematic to go about getting parts for it though if something went awry. Did the owner say why they were getting rid of it?

He said he's going back to college full time and doesn't have time to ride anymore.

There was one in the San Diego Craigslist this past week for $ 1800.

Have seen the later, much faster 1125 water cooled version for $ 2600 to $ 3500 on Ebay.
