I wonder if other people selling the same items on craigslist go and flag the postings cheaper than theirs?

Hi, first off the bike is still for sale. It was never dropped, laid
down or abused and I have a clear title in hand. The price I'm asking
for the bike is $4,000.00. I am leaving the country in about 1 week to
Iraq so it has to go. I already have tons of emails so I hope you
understand that I need to sort them out. I will take in consideration
only those buyers who are really interested in buying the bike to be
sure that I don't waste my time with endless discussions.

For more pictures see the link below:

Let me know if you have any questions.

Did your email have link to site with some good pics? The link he attached to my email actually showed a very nice GSXR600, but I still believe it is a scam.

Ask the dude a specific question and try to set up a meet time with him.

If you get the same "copy/pasted" response then it's a good indication of a scam. Very cheap bike, going out of the country and generic replies like this smell of scam already anyway.

David,
I am very interested in the 2008 GSXR 600. Could I get a time and location
that I may come look at the bike? I have cash in hand for the right deal.
Where is this bike physically located (I am aware in Austin, TX, but what
area; physical address would be great for Mapquest)? Also, when is a good
time to view bike?

The bike is paid in full, right? Would I be able to get you to scan a copy
of the clean, TX title?

Thanks,
Aaron

sometimes people put stuff up relatively cheap because they know when the situation they are going through is done, they will have a lot of money saved or what not.

my friend on MH , his little brother came back from Marines, had a gixxer 600 for a few years, and sold it for CHEAP, cause he was re-enlisting and going back to iraq, not as a base bound HMWWWV driver, but now as force recon.

his reasoning..

1. die. no worries about the bike.

2. survive, and have lots of combat pay, and other incentives in his checks, and just saving up, not being able to spend it.....then BOOM discharged..i wanna BIKE!
