    And how do the grips stick with the handlebar dampener?

    I've had some bad deals go down over the years. But to sell an eight-year-old ride for $500? That after going ballistic with the flat-black Krylon.

    How do you destroy a modern bike with only 20,000 miles on it?

    The Ninja fairings are missing - that makes me suspect a lay-down. Makes me suspect more-serious damage. Also makes me suspect that the doofus just wants it out of sight. He's already lost $3799 - might as well let Republic pick it up when they empty the tubs there...and close the book...

    FWIW, i post often on this thread and almost always paste the entire ad; in this particular case i decided to not do so because i didn't want innocent members of the ADV community exposed to the seller's obvious insanity. I bet you're sorry now that someone else pasted it!

    You're strict!

    and then

    I've ridden the KTM 500 EXC, it's a piece of cake to ride. It does whatever you want. I suppose if you are a disgustingly fast rider it could accommodate you. It's not "disgustingly fast" as in super powerful or whatever. How would he know it's disgustingly fast if he is a "mellow rider"?

    I guess he really doesn't want to sell the bike.

    One of the biggest pieces of crap ever made, I had one long ago. $1500 and it needs work. I guess it must be a "classic". :nah

    A Yamaha Chappy is a better trail bike than this pile of junk. :deal

    It also appears to have a 3 foot long street muffler on it! :scratch

    Two statements in adds by the seller that guarantee I won't be the buyer. "Turns heads" and "my loss is your gain." Majority of the time both are in the same add.

    Hilarious. On my phone the first comment on Jalopnik is about the Cutlass with the mural on it.

    Just a whole bunch of stupid there.
    And worse, it looks like they're reproducing.

    Take an ill-handling, uncomfortable, underpowered bike,
    and make it more uncomfortable and worse handling............
    good plan.

    "Outrun Death"
    ??????

    on a 250 Marauder?
    better hope death is walking, because that's likely the only way you'll be able to.

    Probably not enough power there to pull a greasy string out of a cat's ass. Outrun death?? Maybe outrun a fart. Maybe. Would depend on the wind. And the fart.

    The pointy sissy bar wold be interesting in a crash. Imagine the bike flipping (highly unlikely with such awesome engineering) and having that bar hit you in the back.

    Outrun death. :grim

    Given the angle on the rear suspension your going to be riding that rear wheel before it bottoms out and dont be wearing a long jacket or its going to wrap round it no matter how slow your going.

    Maybe that's what he meant with "Outrun Death"? Maybe the bike is an art piece that symbolizes death is always mere inches away from your ass? Deep maaaan, deeeep....
