lol cody

rolan, tell him you have the cash ($2500) and to take it to Motorcycles Unlimited. if it all checks out tell him you'll buy it. i'd wager he's bluffing about the other 2 people.

Yeah I recognized the bike, I just didnt think you were so tall LOL... I had met another rider a while back with the same bike as you and kept picturing him when I see your posts. I asked Lynx Rider at the restaurant and he was like, yeah that's him. Xhangy got skillz, BTW....

Text'd the guy Monday, told him I was still interested and the bank is now open.
Said he hasn't shown it to anyone but didn't have time. Maybe later in the week.

Text'd him this morning and offered $2600 straight up right now, got hot cash in my pocket.
Said it was too low, no way.

Text'd him again this afternoon and said if plastics were clean and it passed Motorcycles Unlimited inspect, he had a buyer. 3 hours later and nothing.

You should have told him you have $2600 in your pocket from your tax refund you got a couple of days ago and you're thinking about either buying his bike or a new Home Theater Setup TODAY That usually gets the ball rolling If that fails, then try to offer him a B16 head.

Dont let that swine push you around! The cash is in your hand...the ball is in your court.

At $2800 for an '06 with 6k miles still isn't a bad deal. Probably not meant to be. Whatev.

Agreed. Been there for years too. Im often at the electronics FS section though. I gave up on their meets since I dont have a 13 second civic hatch.



Helios, if you get it, Ill trade you the zx6 for the 650 if the 650 is more noob friendly

We could do a weekend ride swap.
Was wanting the 650r for full track though.

From what Cody's saying too, sounds like this guy's a flaker.

You should just trade it in and buy a Yammy V-Star
But honestly, I really hated those stock tires. They had a problem sticking to 3090 and the Forest. A few times I would feel the front slip creating that "Oh Sht" feeling along with some puckering.

On my last run with a friend @ Crabb, the front kept wobbling in a turn and thats when I realized it was worn down to the belt. The OEM BT012s are terrible tires! Get the BT016s and youll see the difference

I believe you mean BT021's for being OEM.
