I dont know his name but it seemed kind of fishy to me because its different bikes and they have different locations but the same number... I wanted to call but didnt want to waste my time.. And he doesnt really give detailed information in his ads kond of how the scammers do.... Just wondering

I bought my first bike from him. He's legit. Everything was straight with the title. As you would with any used bike, TAKE A GOOD LOOK at these bikes before you buy them. My first bike looked good but it had been repainted. Everything else on the bike was good. Bought it with less than 2k miles and I sold it to Bluewave18 with like 12 or 13k miles. Mechanically speaking, I did not one single problem when I owned it. Well, it was a Kawi

BTW, Bluewave18's friend totalled that bike so may she RIP

If he goes by the name mike johnson call the police and let me know cause he sold me a stolen bike 2 years ago fkin . He buys them from people with fake checks and before they cash it, the title is given to him. That ways when he sells it he has the title for it too so you think its legit

Good guys as far as Im concerned. The bike Joe is talking about is an 03 that he had with 216 mi. on it. We talked a little and i explained it was for a friend and that he was with his wife at the hosp. having a baby. I told him that he doesnt know me but I promise we will be there in the am. He removed the ad on my word alone. We picked up the cleanest 03 you have ever see. It had orig. tires with the still on them. I would go see him again.
