First post...looking at Superhawks in LA

Hi all!

I've been lurking here last couple of days.

Guess I've always wanted a Superhawk, and have entered "negotiations" on a clean one not too far away. It's a 2003, and looks like it has hardly been ridden, and pretty well maintained, too. Think it has about 3500 miles.

Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself, and say how glad I am to be here!

Brad

Hope things go well with your deal. Superhawk riders are a special breed and I think the driving force is the raw power, its incredible handling even for a novice rider and Honda reliability. Welcome to the forum. If things go well maybe you can post up some pictures of your new purchase!

Will do!

Fingers are crossed...

I think I recognize a screen name or two from some of the other boards I frequent...

You were one of the names I recognize from SCS. - Another old timer there, huh? I also saw Tony (demonic racing) has posted here.

I think I'm a relative n00b over on SCS...whichever domain it is on now.

If you need a service manual, I think we have one on this forum somewhere...? If not, let me know. I've got a few burned onto CD (.pdf) lying around.

Ah bummer. Looks like my deal fell apart. I think they're on crack-wanting way over high retail blue book. I guess I understand now why the bike has been there for months...

Are there still any new '05s around?

Yeah, there's a guy on the forum selling one in LA. Blue 03, 5000 miles or so. That's the one I thought you were buying. Check out the classified section.

Check out Bert's. Now, normally I would not recommend that place, but you aren't a n00b, and the bike you want is not in demand either. Last time I was there, they had several (more than three) blue, 03's, in the "Red Tag Sale" cage. Each was $5999 + fees, but if they are still there by now (two months have elapsed), then I'm sure you can work out a sweet deal.

Man, I'd like to think of that place as a last resort...

I'll keep fishing...

Thanks!

Welcome to the forum, hope you can pick up a SH for a good price - they sure are fun to ride.

Used SHawks

Check out Cal Coast Motor Sports in Ventura.... Good website, and they got two Shawks... one read, one yellow.... I saw the yellow one recently, and it looked pretty clean.... the shop has been there for years, and I haven't ever heard anything bad about them...... Thousand Oaks Honda also recommended them to me last year when I was looking to upgrade to an RC51.... The Honda service manager is close friends with the owner out there...... Good luck... And if you are ever out this way, let me know so we can zoom Mulholland.....

I'm sure I've seen you around. I work in Westlake, and ride around Malibu frequently (blue ZRX).

I'll scope out both Cal Coast and TO.
