for the people who don't know, i sold my bike yesterday to "ghostrider" who came to my house and sold me a bullshit story about havin to sell his bike and pay his taxes and that he needed something to ride. now, i realize i made the choice to sell the bike at the price i did. that does'nt bother me, i got it cheap, wrecked it ,and sold it cheap..no biggy. but it bothers the out of me when people lie to my face...thats it just venting
p.s.
he put the bike up for sell today for a thousand more...

I do that all the time. The difference between him and I is that I won't lie to you about what I'm doing. I bought that Yamaha Speedohealer a couple days ago on here for 35, put it on Ebay with the same picture he used to sell it here and it's at $76 right now. If someone is selling something cheap I'll grab it and flip it for a few extra bucks, don't see any harm in that at all. But him telling you the story that was false is not cool at all.

nothing wrong w/ buying low and selling high, but to lie to get it so low is weak.

a few yrs back, i was selling Arai nose mask for 2x what i paid for, got them from an i-net retailer and sold them on ebay.......lol

then there was those little RC cars from radio shack
tickle me elmo's.
and so on.......lol

I have always thought about this every time I see something up for sale at an incredibly low price. Never got to doing it, though. I think it would be more trouble than it's worth in my time.

But then, if this guy can sell this quick for what he's asking, and make seven hundred bucks for the trouble, I may rethink this idea again!

It's not wrong, but giving a lame reason is just that... lame.

Should have kept that ZX7R! Best bike I have ever ridden hands down! Wish we still had ours! And no we didn't sell it!
