    What is up with all the bikes that are "Bill of Sale Only"?

    Is it that hard to go to the DMV and get the title before they put it up on craigslist?

    No Title = Stolen.

    Even if the bike is legit... do you wanna buy a bike from a lazy person that takes short cuts in life ?

    I bet he changed the oil and cleaned his filters regular too... right ? :lol3

    i picked up this ttr125L to chase my buddies kids around the desert on, and haven't used it. sold my truck and can no longer haul it.

    asking $1000.00 firm.

    its just had a carb clean, and a new air filter, new grips, and new white front and rear fenders

    bike has:
    fat bars
    bbr top triple tree
    bbr engine cradle
    bbr heavy springs
    excel wheels front and rear
    fmf pipe
    and I'm 90% sure it has a lightended flywheel (it revs up much faster than my friends stock one)

    starts up and runs well, current reg till '16, clean title

    and before the fender change, blue fenders also included.

    Hey Folks.

    Not most of your cup of tea, but for long distance riding a Goldwing is better than most. This one looks really good for the price. Too good? Yes, it's 20 years old, but still....

    I have no connection with this bike. But if I had a few extra dollars in my pocket I would seriously consider this.

    Good luck.

    (Had a 1200cc Goldwing many years ago and quite liked it. This one weighs a bit more. :rofl )

    That's the sort of bike that is just begging for someone to buy it, quit their job, ride around the country from now until this time next year, and sell if for the same price. But I guess you could say that about a lot of motorcycles. But that seems like a good price for a low mile goldwing.

    So it may have been too good to be true. Looks like it was flagged for removal.

    Oh well.
