Lucky Friend

So I've got a friend who has some of the best luck finding bikes for cheap.

First was an 07 1000rr for $1200 with low miles that was disassembled for track use and an ignition wire was somehow cut. Guy couldn't figure it out and sold it dirt cheap. Clean clear blue title

Second he is picking up right now. 08 1000rr low miles wrecked but at a low speed. Needs some plastics and a headlight but that's it. Clean clear blue title. $600 because the guy doesn't want to ride anymore.

Does anyone else have such luck because I'm taking you the next time I go to the casino along with him.

I don't have that kind of luck with bikes, but I do with cars.
