As far as looks....don't they look exactly alike? the differences are not visible from the outside.


Its not the style but the color, the 06 is blue with a silver gas tank and the 04 is the limited with dark grey and flames on the tank.

Also the 06 is listed as a "T" model but its but studded so I think he added after market bags and windshield and just called it a T

If the speedo is white, it is a T. If it is black, it is a fake.

Its like a weapon......buy the one you like best, it doesn't matter what anyone else thinks. If you think on it too long both will be gomne and you will be pi ssed.

Get the one you like best it is way easier ofr others to learn to like what you bought then for you to try to make your self like what someone else told you to get.

If it were a weapon I would say get the CZ can't really do much better
because its the bike I say get the '04 I like Volusias, but it doesn't matter what I like.

I'm going tomorrow to look at the volusia. I just dont get a good feeling about the boulevard, and the owner was kindof an ass on the phone but the owner of the volusia was ready nice and seemed to know what he was talking about.

So my next question is, since I just moved to the area I dont have any friends who ride to come look at otr with me, anybody have tips for what to inspect on a used bike before i buy , it was just state inspected a couple weeks ago

look at the tires for certain, with less then 5k miles they may be the originals, and getting a bit old and therefore need replacing due to age

i think there are some members in your area

Check end of handlebar grip for rough edge, if so bike fell over. Check all footpegs if rough edge, if so bike fell over, Check clutch and brake levers, if rough edge bike fell over, check headlight rim, if scratched, bike fell over. check front fender where bolt holes hold fender to forks, may be cracked. check turnsignals in good condition. See if the kickstand has been altered, nub ground off or notch by pivot, that is good, owner knows his bike. Ask if PAIR valve is still on bike and intact. See if air cleaner and airclear shell still on bike. Ask if bike has been rejetted.

Others will add to this list.............
