It's daunting to look in the newspaper classifieds and see 2 Sportsters and a moped when you're looking for a dual sport, sportbike, or whatever. With CL, I can search locally, and if I don't find what I want, I keep expanding my search, with LOTS of results. And when I start searching for specific models (DR, KLR), it will include results from a wider radius.
An android app I have, oddly enough named CLAPP (you can't make this crap up) makes it easy to keep adding locations to your search, so it's only a matter of how far you want to drive. So I balance asking price with convenience and location.
The part that absolutely KILLS me is when some Gixxer jockey tells you how his bike is the bomb, and has $10,000 in upgrades, blah blah blah, and then says HIT ME UP FOR PICTURES.
If you can't take time to post a picture of what you want to sell, it doesn't sound very awesome and I'm not going to take time to ask for them.
The older I get, the faster I used to be.
