Rough transalp
 
I rcently went to Coonamble to look at Knarly Adventurers bike for sale which was a 12 hour drive,He said it had a small crack in the cnr of one side plastic otherwise it was in perfect cond.He said you wont be dissapointed..After driving for 12 hours and excited to be picking up my new bike I was dissapointed to discover that it had another hole in the top plastic where a bolt had gone through when turning bars on full lock,the plastic guards and seat were sun faded and crash bar and tank paint scratched.The whole bike was dirty and the owner admited he had never washed it other than throwing a bucket of water over it.What a waste of my time and app $500 fuel and food costs.So buyer beware dont take anyones word as gospel no matter how convicing they sound.How hard is it to wash and polish a motor bike.

Might sound a bit harsh, but next time ask for current pictures before you waste that kind of time/$$ to look at a bike.

How hard it it was wash a moto? Why didn't you buy it and wash it if dirt is the only problem.
