    Not sure what you are looking for, but we have a really nice Honda Shadow VLX coming up at an estate auction on June 2nd (only 2200 miles). If you are interested, I can send you the link to our website.

    Re: Motorcycle dealers in Central Iowa...

    My first preference is to buy from a private party.

    My favorite dealer in Iowa is Baxter cycle in Marne, Iowa. Great staff, great bikes, etc.
    Baxter Cycle,British Motorcycles,Triumph, BSA, Norton, European


    I find the rest of the Des Moines dealers just kind of blah. Struthers Bros probably has the largest inventory. Most of these dealers web sites are horrible for new models and don't even tell you what they have in stock.

    I like MotoSports on the south side of DM but the Ducati's are probably a little more than what you want to spend.

    It really depends on what you want. It wouldn't do you any good to go to the 'Big Barn' if you're looking for a Kawasaki.

    When someone says they want a motorcycle /scooter to tool around town with the last thing I think about is a harley. It's like someone asking for a small, cute, and shy girl to date and having Rosanne show up.
