Thanks guys, I actually have the original blue plastics too. I think they will stay in the garage because of how mint they are.

Thumbs up

Nice clean '02! You can't even see normal scuffs/wear on the clutch cover/frame. Thats the nicest bike of that age I've ever seen, must have very low hours. The yellow plastic, at least the shroud graphics are '00.

What's the riding like around Knoxville? I have a friend there and another friend from there, plus there are occasional opportunities for me to travel there on business. I could drive and bring my bike in the future.

Good luck and welcome!

Thanks guys!

Riding around knoxville is pretty good I think! You basically have 3 major area within an hour driving distance. Royal blue is fun with a lot of atv type trails, brimstone is sorta the same with some new singletrack I heard. Also there is a place called coal creek which is very cool. If youre into dual sporting tellico is definitely a cool place to ride around.

side note, you guys wouldn't happen to know where one could pick up some carbon fiber goodies for a bike like mine do ya?

East TN,

Skip the carbon except for a set of fork protectors, there are far better choices. Hyde, Meccasystem, etc. do a search.
