This rig can maintain highway speeds but is more fun on country roads. It is set up very well and handles excellent. All the servicing is current; it needs nothing. A service logbook will be supplied  with the sale.


I have a signed title in my name and the rig is currently registered in RI. RI does not supply titles before 2000.


NB  The special riding companion is not being sold with the rig, for illustration purposes only; you’ll have to get your own.
