    I’m an almost 62 year old Veteran that has struggled for a year trying to get a mortgage loan modification, eventually it will happen, but I’m retired on a pension plus I’m drawing $400 per week unemployment for at least 6 more months, I’ve found a V-Max for $8000 on e-bay I want to purchase. I need a loan with a manageable monthly repayment schedule. If anyone can help me I’d appreciate it, again,.. I’m a Veteran, on a pension from my local union and drawing $400/wk unemployment until October when I begin receiving Social Security. If we can agree on an intrest rate and monthly payment I need this loan in the next day or two. I’m active in my Legion Post, honest and trustworthly, I am trying to enjoy what’s left of my life and motorcycling is something I simply love and this motorcycle is the one I want. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You mrhaney55@sbcglobal.net

    Anybody know where i could find a review online for the 2009 QLINK Megelli 250r? looks like a nice alternative to the ninja 250R.

    Jimmy, we will probably be one of the first out there to get our hands on one, we will be conducting a review on the 2009 QLINK Megelli 250r sometime in the fall.
