    Seen that one listed before. I like that he's not worried about the slipping clutch, reassuring to the buyer for sure.

    If it were cosmetically and mechanically perfect, and had the tour pack, he'd be justified in asking that much (but shouldn't expect to get it).

    Just about every seller thinks their bike is worth more than it is. Just about every buyer thinks the bike they want isn't worth half of the asking price. I find that you have to build in negotiating room when advertising on Craigslist, although that is still a lot higher than he should expect to get offered.

    "The bike has 82hp from the factory but, with the mods, I figure it has around 115hp at the rear wheel."

    Laughed so hard I almost peed.

    They're comfortable, and you can't see it when you're riding.

    Nice thing is that seat can be installed either way around. If one wears out, flip it around!

    Sorry, didn't mean to offend anybody, I would have said I find it horrible, if someone likes it, that's fine.

    He briefly describes how shitty it runs with the pods but somehow this is because it's making so much power.
    He needs to be a politician as he's a master at double speak.

    Oh don't worry. It is a horribly ugly seat.
