Time to sell....regretflly
« on: August 27, 2017, 01:45:59 PM »
  Time to let her go....my old hips and the "standard " position do not agree anymore.

Anyone in the Charleston, SC area who is looking for a superb 750 should take a look here on CL.

Wow - Nice bike at a great price!
I doubt you'll have a problem selling the bike if it runs as good as it looks.
If I wasn't already in love with my '96, I'd fly there and buy it...

You could mention in your ad that the bike has experienced a "total eclipse"...
Sorry... I'm still jealous I didn't get to see it!

If you don't sell it right away, have you tried or considered alternative seating?
I replaced my stock seat with a Corbin gunfighter, and a gel pad, and my hips are happier!
In any case, good luck...
P.S. There are many others who have lost their 'Hawks, so you can still 'hang around' 
:jkam:
Regards

Beautiful bike, but I know what you mean.  Last time I rode the 96, I felt like my legs were WAY too high.  Wish there was an easy way to re-position the pegs.

One thing that helped me was putting flip up pegs on my case savers - Let's me stretch out on a long ride...
Likely too late to help you...

Thanks guys...I've thought of new seat,and it has the pegs, but the truth is it's the hips...
can't stay on it for my than an hour, and the dismounts have been a real adventure.
Bike has always been a bit tall for me, but always managed...not so sure anymore.
Not to sound like an old fart, but enjoy them while you're young. I waited until retirement to
start riding again...regret that.
Thanks again and stay safe.

Don't feel bad, cause it's a great ride you had...

As far as young... I recently officially joined the old farts club..
Don't you have to be 65 to get in?

Anyway, the gunfighter is a lot lower, but it's not going to help with the dismounts, but glucosamine does!
Hey, you can feel good about passing along a *nice* machine to someone who can ride it without wincing...

You ride when you can.  I was out of it for years while on Active Duty.  If I hadn't had kids, I could have ridden some great bikes of the world, but as usual, another great adventure ruined by adult responsibilities. :(

Maybe you need to find a shorter bike.  I seriously considered the Magna before I bought my first NightHawk.
