    Why - just because it looks like this: :lol3

    First sign of a scam seems to be the magic price of around $1200 for something that's worth at least $3k or more. :deal

    I'd love to have another DR6 but I didn't realize they kept their value so well. I did enjoy this: "This is not a KLR, XR but similar". :lol3

    I thought this was a good deals thread. A DR650 that's 11 years old for 4200 dollars? Go fish.

    I just wanted to make people aware of a good bike, it's up to you to negotiate a good deal. It is Craig's List after all.

    Odd thing about selling used bikes - seems like you can't give them away at times, meanwhile, doofusot are clogging up CL with their CF attempts to sell overpriced used bikes to folks who don't care.:loco

    that's not as bad as people putting false ads up, their trying to sell an $8,000 bike for $1,000! you can ask whatever you want, but it's a buyer's market..

    Somehow I think the fake ads make the subaverage CL browser think that they should all be given away.

    My daughter and son in law both found jobs and are looking for someone to take over their apartment lease: https://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/sub/6954403615.html

    I have visited several times and it is in a good neighborhood, almost on a busline, easy bike ride to lakeshore drive and all that goes with it. He had a research position at the University of Chicago and routinely walked, rode his bike or took a bus to school.

    If you know of someone in Chicago looking for a cool place, this might be it.
