Default Looking at 2001 volusia

Hi all,

I live in Florida and am looking at a volusia to keep up north to ride during the summers. I am very tall 6'6" and the volusia is a big and long bike and I seem to fit on it well. It will be in storage for 10-11 months out of the year because I have a bike down south. I don't need to ride 80 - 90 mph all the time but sometimes its fun. 60 to 65 mph is cool. The volusia I am looking at has 35,000 miles on it and looks like it has been taken care of. I probably won't put over 1500 miles on it during my time up north so if I keep it maintained and stored properly it should last for a long time because vtwins seem to be very dependable. Asking price is $2500. Is it worth it?

I just got one this summer and I love it . I put 6,000 miles on it this summer. This is also my first bike . I have no problems and going 60-65 its a great bike . I dont think you will have any problems from what I have read here and the price seem fair. Good Luck

seems pretty good. Just make sure that you do a good job on "winterizing" it or you'll have a lot of problems the next year.
Slow down,enjoy the ride,arrive alive.

The biggest problem with the 01's was backfiring due to the pair valve. This is not a problem that one can hide. The bike will either backfire when switching gears or it won't. The problem is easily fixed and not all 01's had this issue. I think this is a great bike for what you want.
It doesn't matter what you ride as long as you don't run out of gas.
