      Before I found my XR, I almost went and bought a new DRZ for this reason. And I don't ever buy new cars / bikes. That was 5 years ago or so, but it hasn't changed.

      Around me, that's a deal for a DR-Z in any condition...I know they can be had for next to nothing in a lot of areas.

      Yeah, Mercedes. The $800 figure surprised me because I would have expected it to be similar to shipping a motorcycle, which some LTL carriers specialize in doing.

      $800 for a jet ski? Sounds expensive...I spent about $725 to ship my W123 from Long Beach to Lafayette, Indiana.

      I think it's also safe to say that people on this forum are less likely to keep it stock than the general public. And the general public includes the lady who used to do my taxes and drove a bugeye...

      I bought one of their drills a few years ago to replace my old Craftsman drill with NiCd battery. Biggest problem I had with the Craftsman (until the batteries both crapped out) was that every single...

      The 6-speed is incredibly rare as well (as if any clean 8-series was an everyday find)...very nice. Definitely something I don't see everyday.

      Used is definitely the way to go, and like anything, the quality will affect how well it plays. I have a Getzen trumpet that I bought in high school and a friend who also had a Getzen had a much...

      Jealous. My 48G that I've been using since 1995 recently died (the arithmetic operator buttons and one or two above them stopped working). I'm trying to decide whether I should replace it with a...

      I don't see a problem with it...no reason a spacer can't have a hex shape to the outside. Looks like there's plenty of thread engagement. Just my opinion as a mechanical engineer, fwiw...
