    I'm (almost) back....

    Am looking at a used 2013 Rocket III Touring 2 tone here in Western Washington with 10400 miles on it for $7500. Carfax has it clean.

    Has softbags add on foot pegs, and a trailer hitch???? Opinions? What should I look for?

    I've got about 2 days to put a down payment on it.

    What happened to the hard bags that come standard on the Touring?

    Are you talking about the one at Magic's in Spanaway?
    Badactor's right, the Touring stock should have color matched hard bags. Something ain't right there. Absolutely just my own personal thing but I won't buy a used bike with a trailer hitch, I just don't trust that the driveline's good.
    Did you call on the red '05 in Hoquiam? $5650 seems like a good deal given it has the back rest, luggage rack, shield, and Corbin bags. Maybe he's had the update done to it. Maybe he'll take 5.

    BadActor the PO was supposed to bring in the bags. Hasn't done so.

    RocketEd, yes that's the one at Magic's.

    A carfax got me a report of one crash with this bike (hit a concrete barrier). Had to be trailered home. A close look showed dents to the rear side of the two front lamps, a dent to the top of the main lamp, some serious slide marks to the r rear passenger foot pad. Guess we know what probably happened to the hard bags. Oh and the detachable front screen is very pristine looking .... yeah the PO story of it being damaged in shipping from Texas to here is .... weak.

    Surround face sound system? Good looking bike (just not the fastest color, black...)

    After a couple of false starts up here in the Pac NW, the deal is done! Thank god for Carfax, (literally got an answer 'how did you know I turned the bike over in 2013" and "it only damaged the hard bags {the first crash yes, the 2nd was the front end}). Some people. The (new to me) bike ships Wednesday probably. With a little luck I'll be riding Saturday, but most likely next week. Thanks you MsLizz and Martin.
