Location: Hilversum, Netherlands
Conditions:
- A new loving owner is more important than money; she served me well.
- Think in terms of $475 or so
- Picture set available on request
- Pick-up from Bloomington IN ==> must be before May 1, 2018
- React per email to: harold@harolddebock.nl

Motivation:
- my long-range riding days in the US are over
- rode with her the original itineraries of Route 66 (2007), Dixie Highway (2008), Lincoln Highway (2011), Yellowstone Trail (2014) and The Great River Road (2017)
- I have done what I planned to do when purchasing MS: explore historic US highways

History:
- bought her in 2007 with about 8.000 original miles
- riding history: see Ride Reports Forum (Riding Dutchmen blogs and Pictorial Saga albums) for day-to-day whereabouts and performance
- for each trip: no expense spared for full maintenance by Fox Yamaha Motorcycles Bloomington IN – oils, filters, spark plugs, battery, brake pads, tires: whatever needed to be done, was done professionally
- never any mechanical issue
- Fox installed new starter clutch and manual petcocks
- in non-riding years: stored in dry garage of friends
- great running engine
- total mileage now about 30.000

Status:
- full factory original including original black exhausts
- original black fenders come with her
- 2 seats: a regular and a queen seat
- saddle bags come with her
- appearance not immaculate, but no touch-up, repaint etc or other unwanted tampering
- the upholstery on the queen seat needs to be redone
