    It’s a 2007, 17,000 miles. S model. Clean title. It’s got 2015 plastics.

    Anything I should look for specifically?

    looks pretty stock from what I can see but I don’t know these bikes that well.

    price was 2,750 we settled on 2,400


    Thanks in advance

    I do the same: “If I come check it out and it all looks good, would you accept $XXXX?”

    Edit: obviously this is after emails/texts/phone calls, establishing that you’re a serious buyer, and have seen pics/videos of the bike to ensure that you have a good idea of the expected condition.

    No one wants your shity red bikes anyway.:fpalm

    I do the same and people have done the same to me. If the bike is as described then there shouldn't be a problem.

    To set a price AFTER you see the bike

    Why are you selling it already? Does it have a tuna?

    If someone started grinding me without getting their useless, lazy ass over to look at it, and without showing me some cash, I'd tell 'em to be fruitful and multiply, but not in those words
