    Either reality set in or he found a bigger fool.

    Hey, he came down $7k, so he did haggle a little.

    Sum "secahead" scooped that gem at such low low low incredible price and saved thousands from original exorbitant "axing" price... :D

    I hope you don't think that more times you watch it, there'll be different less-ouch outcome... :-)

    Nope - just watched it once more, still same hurtful outcome sadly...

    Although it may have been very painful, I hope she doesn't get turned completely off from riding motorcycles - not so much as passenger but as a rider... :-)

    Or maybe, just maybe, walking. Let us not even consider sex, especially with that dude.

    I think quite few activities, sex included, were off the table for her for a while, regardless of w or w/o the dude causing the incident...

    The jeans aren't all that abrasive resistant to the friction with the rear tire so butt skin grafting isn't out of the question too as one of the consequences..

    Holy crap! You responded to a post that is 13 years old! What happened? Did you just come out of suspended animation and discover this thread? If so you are going to be spending a lot of time going thru the 665 pages you'll need to read to get up to date. :photog

    :( I kind of liked the Avett Brothers before, but this bike just kind of ruined it for me.

    Hopefully that started as a lightly wrecked bike. Take off the stickers, put an actual muffler on it, rear turn signals, license plate light and some rear fenderage and it might be worth $1200! Then it still needs some kind of rear rack so it can be somewhat useful for more than hanging out at the local Starbucks or 'moto salon'.

    03 Yamaha r6 custom bobber - $5500 (Midlothian)

    Hull St near Genito Rd

    2003 yamaha r6

    condition: excellent
    engine displacement (CC): 600
    fuel: gas
    paint color: white
    street legal
    title status: clean
    transmission: manual
    type: sport bike

    With a baby on the way, it has come time to try and sell a few of my toys. I don't ride as much as I use to sadly anyways (as you can see from the dust in the pictures that I will be cleaning off at some point this week).

    This fully custom r6 is a blast to ride. I still start it and let it run every week or 2 to keep the fluids moving and the battery charged. Clean NC title that I never switched over after moving back to VA last year. This bike was previously owned by a VA Beach performance shop owner and is mechanically sound with around 28k miles and ready to rip. Only thing wrong with the bike at the moment is a very slow front tire valve stem leak (I have to top off with 5-10 psi after sitting for 2-3 weeks).

    Below is a list of things I've done to the bike:
    -Custom cage with forward controls
    -Custom all steel gas tank
    -6" z handle bars
    -Buell dual from headlight w/ cage and shorty steel fender
    -Custom single seat frame with leather bobber seat
    -Custom battery box with brake light and turn signals
    -led front signals on forks
    -Swing arm extension w/ new chain
    -lowered 2"
    -New tires (less than 500 miles)
    -New clutch and synthetic oil

    I'm sure there are a handful of other things that I have done back when I originally got her on the road 3 or 4 years ago that I'm forgetting. Feel free to email me with any questions of trades that you may have and I should be able to respond pretty quickly. Price is OBO.

    I'm open to some trades: Cruisers, dual sports or a station wagon or small SUV for the wife.

    Thanks for looking.

    I wonder why it made sense to the fabricator to put such a large tank on a bike that likely wouldn't be ridden very far at any one time? That's got to be 8 gallons or more if it's all functional space. I'm guessing the beer can is coolant overflow... but who knows? :puke2
