If it sounds too good to be true... It's mid-summer with high gas prices so be prepared to pay retail prices for a bike.

Well he finally e-mailed me back and this is my response:
Hey ,
The Yamaha is in great condition and runs great , accident free, no scratches, no special marks, no need for additional repairs , it is like new with only 3,167 miles .
The reason I am selling it , is because I am in the military and my unit will be sent back to Iraq for a mission that will take 6 months and I don't want the bike to get old in my garrage . I am selling it so low because I need to sell it before July 25th.
The price that I hope to obtain for it is 2900 $.
I already have tones of emails so I hope you understand that I need to sort them out and I hope you won't make me loose time as it has already happened to me.If you will decide to buy it I am willing to pay for the shipping costs .
If you are still interested e-mail me back .

His posting has been flagged, as said before. But I had a chance to e-mail him and see what he had to say. I wanted to see how far he would take it!
