Default Re: How to Buy a Motorcycle Online

I wouldn't buy a used bike off e-bay. A new one from a dealer might work if there was a significant savings, or some other reason why I couldn't find one locally. I can be just about anywhere on the west coast and back home with my truck in a few days so I'd save shipping

I'd just have to pay the Peoples Republic of Washington's sales tax, license tax, Sound Transit tax, Paul Allen Stadium tax, Large Insuance Company Field tax, and Keep Large Chicago Based Aircraft Co. in Washington tax.

At least it would be a fun drive to pick the bike up.

Might I also suggest an escrow service such as www.escrow.com? This would protect the buyer AND seller by allowing the buyer to receive the bike and the seller the be guaranteed the money.

While I couldn't personally imagine buying a bike without giving it a thorough sniffing over in person first, I know that Jack Cofano (one of our contributors) recently purchased a Road Star over Ebay and couldn't be happier with the results. The owners even trucked it up from FLA to NC personally to drop it off. So apparently there are some good deals to be had along with the scams.

My friend Brian purchased his BMW on Ebay from a guy in MN. He got it for considerably below market value. He did have to pay $600 for shipping.



As much as you like "V-Roads" you should start searching.

my co-worker just bought a '94 FXR from a guy in FLA. for quite a bit less than market value here in the NW, he paid for the local HD dealer to inspect it and replace the tires, tune-up/oil change and store it for him.

He and his wife are flying down next month to do the Carribbean, then they're going to ride the bike back to Seattle. He feels pretty comfortable with the whole deal so I hope it works out.

It's V-Rode not V-road, you must be boarding on mental instability or something

Default Re: Duh: A V-Road is God's gift to motorcycling

I've never ridden a "V-Road," but I have ridden a V-Rod (a few times) and was mighty impressed. One of my riding buddies has a 2003.



I'm still not crazy about the "Vegas *****" riding position or the mile-and-a-half long shifter throw, or the fact that the rear brake pedal is in an awkward position (for me). But, overall, it was a really nice handling bike (for being raked out) with pretty respectable ground clearance and a great motor. And it's about time HD offered a bike with some more contemporary styling. (And very attractive, to boot.)



However, God's gift to motorcycling it is not. Especially for $20 grand.



Now, perhaps you were too caught up in your Harley Davidson-induced inferiority complex to deduce that I was poking fun at a scammer's dead-giveaway spelling error and not your beloved all-knowing, all-seeing "Motor Company."
