in short, YEs...like the two that i had my eye on, and the deal did not go thru? the prices they wanted was what i could pay, and the mileage was around 20k and the bike was 2007-2008....so they do exist....

my advisor who shall remain without name...but is a XT specialist, has reminded me again that no bike older than 2007 should be considered....do you know why this is? ;D
could you send me some pics? But my budget is no secret.....

The only difference between the pre & post 2007 models is that the Lambda sensor got added in 07, and a few cosmetics - exhaust covers & grab handles
Alcohol is essentially nature’s Leatt Brace – with it, you might not be able to move worth sh*t, but you can take a slam or two and be no worse for the wear.
