Hi Guys, Didn't really know what section to post this in so forgive me if I'm in the wrong place. I'm new to all this riding stuff, only been on my L's for just under 3 months. As a car nut I frequent CarSales to just see what's out there & what is worth how much at the moment. I often have friends of friends etc looking for cars, so I generally help out looking for cars. So now that I've fallen in love with riding I'm frequently on BikeSales etc researching my next purchase. My question is why there are so many, particularly sport bikes, with bugger all k's being sold by private sellers? I've mainly been looking at Gixxers 1000s etc. The only 2 reasons I could think of are: 1. The bike turned out to be much faster than the ability of the person who bought the bike. 2. Buying the bike sounded like a good idea at the time but they rarely get an opportunity to ride it. I do find it really hard to believe that somebody would just drop $20k on a new sport bike without being sure they were going to ride it! Any thoughts?
