i sold my gixxer at the beginning of summer. bad mistake i must have seen at least 10 carefully picked bikes and travelled all over melbourne in the last few weeks to find that every bike that ive seen has been either dropped, crashed and repaired or had some other major reason for not selling. maybe after all the seasonal bike buying over the last couple of months this is all thats left? maybe im not spending enough to get something nice at 8k? im starting to get a little ticked off as i read the adds and ask over the phone if the bike has any problems and the seller is like no.. no.. its perfect and immaculate and lovely ect. to get there and have nothing to say as im holding in my disappointment. i now think that "tyre kickers" are perhaps just being nice by staying quiet while they stare blankly at the money hole infront of them. and i feel sorry for new buyers that would actually part with their money for these bikes not having known better. pre purchase inspection, pre purchase inspection, pre purchase inspection! the buying guide on NR is also a v good place to start. Immaculate is not dropped, not running properly or making irregular engine noises!! for now ive given up for a bit until some new bikes become available. if anyone having read the above is selling a genuin 600cc to 900cc with low kms for around 8k and after a quick sale pls let me know.
