look for parts that are scraped.. parts that are broken.. ie clutch lever brake lever, stator cover, clutch cover, barends, exhuast, bent wheels, that kinda stuff.. look carefully if you miss one thing it could be the one thing they didnt replace when they dropped it.. LOTS OF PEOPLE LIE..

If you can, get it brought up to a shop.
For MotoHouston folk we'll test ride / visually inspect the bike for free.

try to have the VIN number ran as well. If it's a Kawi, I can run it for ya, if it's Honda, Zook, Yammi, call one of those dealers and let them do a VIN search.
