    Should I buy a 96 SLX??

    Alright guys/gals, I'm on the edge of this decision here and looking for a little input.

    A month or so back I bought a 92 and 94 SL 650 on a nice two place trailer. Now for sale locally there is a 96 SLX that has a rebuilt motor with about 30 hours on it. The hull is in great shape and it's been garaged its entire life. I checked it out today and it is CLEAN and very nice. He's asking $1,000 on a nice single place trailer. I think I can get the whole package for $800 if I jump soon.

    So what are your thoughts? I'm thinking buy it, put it on my two place trailer and then put the 92 SL on the single place and sell it to try and break even. I'm open to any and all input.

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the words of encouragement guys. I'm hoping to pick it up after work tomorrow if my offer is acceptable. I wanted to get it on sunday after checking it out Saturday evening, but no banks open and ATM limit is $500 per day...ahhhh! Then work was just too nuts today. Hope it's still there. I'll let you guys know if I get the beast.

    Well...I blew it and missed out on that deal. I blame it all on work, being that I've been there way too long the past 3 days to go buy the ski. Ahh well, wasn't meant to be I guess. Someone did get a hell of a deal on a nice ski though...maybe we'll get a new member here soon.
