No, I didn't call - I can't afford to pay attention right now. lol3 But it seems that's a common trait for some people with these bikes. My bike needed a lot of work that I could see - and more that I couldn't and the guy wanted $3k because another one had sold - with bags and in better shape for that a couple months before. I was desperate & had to have this bike (bad combo) so I beat him up for $100 and got it.

A 375 pound, 750cc dirtbike for about $3000.'ve got me talking myself into it again.

Oh yeah, I just remembered their one weak spot: the transmissions are made of glass. Must. Remember. That.
See, you've come to your senses.

I guess the moral of the story is - this guy's gonna keep it since he won't budge and most Elefant owners are reasonable, cold-blooded buyers that can walk away from a bad deal.

Yeah, that's it!
