Looks like a cool bike. If the Virgo is in that good of shape I'd hold on to it till next spring then you'll get your money out of it or at least get what it's worth

You would have to be absolutely nuts to NOT trade for a Honda VT or FT 500 if you have a Virago. The Honda is always going to sell 10 times faster when it comes time to turn it back into the market. Virago's on the other hand need someone that actually cares about them.



The coolest thing about the Honda is the handling and engine character. Honestly a wonderful street bike with a dash of flat tracker to make it just that little bit more of a thrill as you bank into a corner and roll on the throttle. ;)

The VT models were shaft driven so you are severely limited on the options for swingarms and wheels.
