Is this your bike?
« on: May 29, 2018, 11:14:24 pm »
It's a long shot but thought I would try, want to know any other history

2009 I bought used, whoever the owner was they but some money into this

Ohlins (front & Rear)
Cee Bailey Shield
DynoJet
PCA luggage rack
CSone pipe
Pazzo Levers

This was on the front of the bike



Thanks

The Ohlin's upgrade is nice. Did you buy it at a dealer?

my neighbour and his dad sell used bikes, they get them from various dealers throughout the southeast area, got a great deal from him on it but they had little info on previous owner..

very very clean bike and well kept other then I need new rubber :)


I am thinking a VIN search would give me an idea of where it's been and maybe the last or one of the owners was a registered COG member?
Thanks

I think I saw that insignia on a bike on CycleTrader. Maybe it's still posted.

That insignia indicates that at some time the bike was ridden to Tail of the Dragon. THOUSANDS of bike have them.

Wolverine,

Ranger Jim is correct, that's the Tail of the Dragon logo.
For any real riding enthusiast it's pretty much a mandatory destination. I prefer riding 129 Tues-Thurs to avoid the heavier concentration of crotch rocket wanna be racers that flood the area on weekends.
Sounds like the bike's previous owner made some desirable  improvements.

What is the name of the used bike business your neighbors have and where is it located?

Good luck on your search and ride safe.
