Hi Everyone!

A question -- the local H-D dealer is selling off its riding school Blasts, and they have a ZERO mileage 2009 for $2999. I currently ride a 2011 Honda PCX125 Scooter, and was thinking of trading up -- extra speed, real motorcycle cred, etc. But I've heard varying stories about Blast reliability. My Honda, as you can imagine, is beyond bulletproof. Any thoughts? I welcome your opinions.
Thanks!

Blasts aren't terrible .. I had one, but it never had many ridden miles,less than 1300 when sold, so I could not attest to the model's longevity ... it's a good bike to ride..if you're not too long legged.

Thanks

Thanks for your opinion! I've actually decided against it. The Blast fits me EXTREMELY well -- with my 29" inseam I can easily go flat-footed, and the handlebars are the ideal position. But I think I'd rather upgrade to something bigger. Plus, it's a new bike but there's no warranty, and of course Buell is kaput...So I think I'm going to go for something else. Very tempting at that price, though...

Thanks again!

I only need $18K extra after I pay my MD/Fed taxes, and hope to ride a NEW Buell again soon ... Old Glory HD just called me about a test ride on a new 750 Street... we shall see ...
