To buy or not to buy

I am interested in buying a used Falcon 2008 with 26,000 km on it, here in Costa Rica. Everything here costs twice as much as anywhere else so it will cost almost $7000 after I pay it off with interest, my question is: is this bike something that is worth investing in can be worked on and kept like new over the long haul.Anyone have any input? My other alternatives are to buy a much older bike, or a much cheaper chinese 400, or pay a lot more for a newer one.

Hey Philip,

I am moving down to Costa Rica, near Cartago in June. I am hoping to get a bike to ride, also. The 400 looks like it would fit the bill. Let me know how your shopping is going. Any advice?

Hi Raaaay. Sent the same in response your PM, but figured I'd post it here in case it can help someone.

A guy in Santiago, Chile makes them. He cuts and presses the plexiglass on site. If you called a Honda dealer in Santiago or contacted the hubb community there, I'd imagine that you could find his contact info.

I do not know if he can ship elsewhere in S. Am. He does not speak English.

cheers

The 400 is a great machine, sometimes I wish I´d bought a second-hand one instead of a brand new Tornado, though I still love my XR250! Thing with the Tornado is it really hates being loaded up, if you have a fair amount of stuff go with the Falcon. For Tornado pack like a cyclist and youll have a blast on the dirt roads. For highway and long days on the tarmc I´d definitely go for the 400. Finding accessories is fairly straight-forward if your in Brazil, Chile or Argentina, not sure about central America. For Chile, give me a PM and I can help you to find the stuff you need (I know because I´ve already looked!)

Are you in the USA?

National Cycle Deflector Screen Competition Accessories

if not just walk into any bike dealer, buy a generic screen and "persuade" it to fit..

(persuade meaning: cut velcro bash cement attach araldite hammer ziptie kick bend bite glue lean-on duct-tape wire tie blue-tack...)
