Do you know an experienced motorcycle rider in the Atlanta area?

So I talked to the owner of that '06 KTM 950 that I've been looking at, and everything sounds really good. The only thing is that it's down in Atlanta and I'm up here. I'd love to have someone I (or you) trust to test ride the bike and tell me what they think before I take the plunge. So if you can refer me to someone in the area that would be willing to do this, let me know.

Thanks.

Denis.

Test rider found

Called up an old high school buddy of mine, and lucky for me he still lives in Atlanta. So test rider for the potential new bike has been found. Still need to find a 950 or 990 to test ride here to see how the bike fits me; I don't see how I wouldn't like it, but I'd prefer to make sure. So if you've got one and wouldn't mind letting me take it for a spin, I'd appreciate it.

Nearly new, unfarkled R1200GS at Advantage Auto, Manassas. (Where I bought my RT). It's a 2009 with about 300 miles on it.

Camping stuff

I have some camping stuff I want to get rid of but don't feel like going through shipping and all the rest of it.
Would rather sell it to someone local if I can.

What's on the "must go" list.
MSR SuperFly with a couple of fuel canisters, $40.
2 - Alite Monarch Butterfly Chairs (one red, one blue) $50 for the pair.
MotoFizz Camping Seat Bag - Large, used three times. $150

Send me a PM if interested.
Located in NoVA.

Thanks.

Hmmm, Riteris sent me a PM about that same place. Seems they have a Tiger 1050 as well. Wasn't sure what to make of the dealer as some of those places on Euclid can be sketchy. I guess I need to take a trip today.

All I can speak on is my own experience, Ken Davis the owner is a rider and big fan of BMW, been selling used BMW's for like 20yrs, he charges a set price depending on the options you want, he gets 'em off BMW lease and at auction, not sure how he handles selling bikes. My 330i came with several thousands in extra options I did not ask for and he did not blink on honoring the set price. He does not charge bargain bin prices but seemed fair based on my market research at the time. I was very happy with my purchase experience.

I've also bought a car for my wife (Bimmer convertible--since I got her that she hasn't blinked an eye at motorcycle stuff ) from Ken, as well as the RT. He's let me ride anything I wanted to, when I talked him directly. He had an Anniversary GS Adventure when I last was there, but like DC rider said, he's a addict. He's certainly gotten something new for himself now.

Also as DC said, he's not bargain basement, but seems fair. Certainly worth checking out, at least.

Honesty and fairness is certainly worth more than a few bucks.

Perhaps he'd like a classic K75 in trade for the Tiger 1050?
