    What about magic beans? Bitcoins? Carbon Credits? Emails from Nigerian Government officials that swear you'll be receiving $25 million in cash in just a few weeks?

    That dealer has an active sales staff to talk you into a bike you can't afford.
    They have a so-so repair shop with one tech who knows just enough to read the shop manuals.
    But their busiest employees are the repo drivers, always plenty of bikes to snatch back.

    The KZ550 was the only bike I ever sold that I regret selling. A fantastic machine. But asking $8K for a KZ550 is an insult. Only a fool would sink a lot of money into building a bike like that. I don't think there exists a big enough fool to consider buying it.

    My favorite part is how they posted the CL ad using HTML code. As if they cut and pasted it off an ebay ad. Do they not check their ads? Or did they do it and just think "Ah... f&*k it, good enough"?

    People send me texts all the time that read like they were composed using those refrigerator magnets with a letter on each one just shoved into random order. Some are so bad I have no idea what the sender is saying. I'd be reluctant to trust anyone who'd post that ad to do something as detail-oriented as financing.

    “Hard to find motorcycle” - hard to find because it’s painted to look like a random pile of junk?
