    Yes, it sure looks like it. That's a no-no, no?

    This, I find amusing:

    "We have a baby on the way, and the only way for me to add another bike is to sell one... Possible trades for a street legal EXC, WR250, Ducati 848, or Paul Smart will be considered. "

    :norton Uhhhh...if you have a baby on the way and you have to sell a bike to make ends meet, you don't need a Ducati. :deal Just sayin'. Besides...a Paul Smart for an over-priced F650???

    The threads intention is to point out great deals to other inmates, not to pimp your own ad (you could have posted the link and no text none of us would have been the wiser right?) :deal
    very hard to weed that stuff out, so the collect "we" just hope folks are honest and if they are sneaking their own ad in they should give an inmate a good deal :deal

    I do see others doing it, so I just hope it doesn't get out of hand otherwise we will start to have low post spammers dropping in CL ads in here. If that happens the thread goes bye bye

    You're right it doesn't. I inferred a different meaning, I reckon. However, in my experience, it's a fairly common Craigslist plea to future buyers to mention that the sale of a bike is due to a pending baby and then want to trade. It's up there with "never been in the rain, never off road, adult rider...."

    Uh, aren't those 1400 Kaws about $ 14,000? I thought $ 9300 sounded decent for a near new one. It's not mine.

    Here's a coupla Cagiva Gran Canyons

    http://sfbay.craigslist.org/sfc/mcy/1147523943.html

    I'm sure I can search, but does anybody have any advice/experience on dealing with interstate or long distance sales? Specifically, purchasing a bike that you've never physically seen. It's a risk, but I'd fly and ride.

    Thanks.

    3 bikes I can't ride, 4 bikes I can't ride; what's the difference???






    Sometimes you can find an ADV'r in the area to check it out for you

    Might be easier to find if you searched for a ruCkus

    I had the local dealer go check it out. Paid for it (credit card for an hour's shop rate) but if there was something mechanically wrong when I got there, after the shop guy checked it out, at least I had someone to talk to about it. I justified the expense as a little insurance policy against getting ripped off completely. I did a ride (the train) and ride and loved it. It was quite an adventure.

    Thanks! I haven't thought of that...good idea. I am secretly wishing that I will have to get out of the the State to buy a GC so I can justify a mini adventure.

    "Really, Honey...the only one in the country for sale is in Maine. :nod " :D
