Yeah.. I know EXACTLY how you feel.





Once, I went to the mall to buy some new jeans, and when I found out they didn't have my size in the store, I was out of my mind.

good for you for going home with your cash instead of a shady bike! yes, always do your homework, ask about the title, and just ask alot of questions in general. usually if there is something iffy about the bike the seller may give clues unintentionally, or without thinking about it.

Dang man that sucks! I had to drive all the way to SA for my bike. I was so happy though. The drive back was like 1/3 of the time, lol. Will try and keep an eye out for you, but I think racer X already has you covered.
