something a little suspect with that deal. On "behalf of listings" for a $10K reserve value bike, where the owner wont make any effort to return calls regarding the sale....whats that about???

something doesnt quite ring true, very tidy bike on the face of it, but cant be bothered setting up a tm account? thought i'd ask around. seems old mate isnt that desperate to sell.

would have thought it might go for 7 or 8

I commented on this bike in Mark's I want... thread.

It might be in good nick with low-ish kays but $10K is ridiculous. Forks have been pulled through and it sorta looks lowered at the back, so any money it's got lowering links. That means at full compression the front guard will hit the triple clamp and the rear tyre will hit the subframe. Rear suspension action will be horrible.

At least a couple of bikes '06-'07 were rentals, but that could mean they were serviced ahead of schedule. I would think a rental would have more than 20,000km by now.

If he's not that interested, he might just be fishing to see what it'll go for. Apparently 10K is not the number!

he had a cash bid of $8.5K which I thought was generous - at the end of the day its a 7 year old bike with no service history and an owner who has set up the sale on behalf so answers too questions aren't made public and he's reluctant to take phone queries...like I say, bit suspect. If ya held ya breath long enuff for 2-3K more than the reserve you could probably be riding a 690 which for that money is what I'd be holding out for.

Just spoke to him

Asked for some more photos. He said he cannot take them, so will get the on behalf to take them, who knows nothing about motorbikes...He is asking over $10K and got upset when I said it was worth at most $8....as they were only $16995 here new...
He sounds like a Lancashire, Manchester lad and a tad arrogant...Good luck with it I say. Pity, looks like a nice bike
