New to MV

I have been lurking here for a few days waiting for my account to get verified and now I can finally post! I'm excited to finally be able to share that I just picked up a new to me 05 F4 1000S 1+1. I love the bike. Been riding all types of bikes for 15+ years and never thought I could get such a rush from a bike. Found it on CL, with 12k miles, sitting in a guys living room. I feel I got a great deal at $5k usd. Hope to learn a lot from you all.

~Matt

Yup. $5000 is a very good price. That doesn't look like the stock windscreen and the mid pipe appears a little too blue to be steel. You may have gotten a very, very good deal.

Welcome aboard.

Welcome to the forum. Where in Arkansas are you? I grew up near Little Rock and my brother lives near Arkadelphia.

I agree with all the above! Welcome!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.

Welcome. My favorite color scheme. Looks like a great deal indeed. If I might humbly offer some advice, wipe the inner fork tube as any gunk (especially dust from sintered brake pads) will ride up and cause an oil leak by ruining the fork seals. Been there unfortunately.

Thanks for the warm welcome all! Yeah, it is an aftermarket windscreen. The mods I know it has are the full titanium arrow exhaust. I have the titanium cans he included with it but I like the organ pipe exhaust better. He also had the Fast by Ferracci installed. On top of that he included the front and rear paddock stands. So far I already purchased some new tires. The thing amazes me more every day. Thanks for the heads up on the fork tubes. I will do that tonight.

As for where I am in AR, I am just outside of LR in Sherwood. Hwy 107 makes for a fun ride into work in the morning. Thanks all and have a good one!
