Buying help !

I am going to look at a bike tomorrow. I was wondering if anyone who has experienced with used bike can go and take a look at it with me. I am not too familiar with the mechanic of the bike.
Anyone that can help will be greatly appreicated, maybe a dinner or something. The bike is loacted on angleton. You can meet me there or meet up in Houston (near 610 and Buffalo Speedway) and we can all go together.

Thanks in advance

What is it? How many miles? Maybe people here can at least give you a heads up of common problems?

its an 02 cbr with around 4600 miles with clean title. The owner said it has some rash on one side of the fairing from a low speed drop.

Btw, its going to be in the afternoon after 4pm, feel free to call me at 281-687-4206. If I don't pick up, I probably still in class, just leave me a message and I will get back to you asap. Thanks !

if you cant get someone to come with you, ask if he can meet you at a shop and have them expect it... its worth it to pay some money now for a inspection rather then pay large sums if you buy a trashed bike.

I asked him that before. Since he lives pretty far out there, he doesnt want to ride all the way to the shop and I ended up not buying the bike. He doesnt want to waste time, i guess

I wouldnt even bother if it has been laid over, much easier to find a bike that has stayed rubber side down! U never know what hidden damage could have occured

Well we went and checked it out....had some light damage on the left hand side, but over all a good looking bike. I dont know where you can get a perfect bike for 3800 let alone with only 4600k, but if you know something i dont lemme know. You cant always get a brand new bike, and we all know these things tend to find they're way to the ground sooner or later. Enjoy your new toy man, and give me a holla if you need any help.
