I found the bike on KSL.com, a local news channel website, that has an awesome classified section for Salt Lake and surrounding areas. I was browsing the motorcycles, when it popped up. I looked at the add then went to bed. I pulled it up again, the next day and it looked like such a good deal, I couldn't pass it up. So, I texted the guy, and to my surprise I was the first one. The bike was in St. George, Ut, 300mi from Salt Lake. Additionally, the owner was not available till Monday the following week. I managed to get off work at 1pm on Monday and was on the road by 2pm. After fast food and some pee breaks I made it to St. George at 6:30, inspected and test rode the bike, and loaded it up on the trailer. I did't haggle with the $1500 asking price. The drive back went pretty quick and I was backing in my driveway, at midnight.
