Yes, I sure did, and I just asked them to remove it! Now I'm sure to be stalked for my online buying skills!



I also had line breaks to make it easier to read.

Couldn't be happier with the bike I bought there, either. It was near immaculate and serviced properly. When I brought it to my local Kawi dealer for a jet kit, I had them do a looksee. They said it was in excellent mechanical condition. And I paid about $1000 less than the most of the dealers were asking for it. (And I got a Muzzy titanium can, too.)



The key is to try to read the tea leaves, examine pictures closely and ask plenty of questions if you have any doubts about the honesty of the seller.



That being said you're still taking a chance when you can't see the bike in person. You are protected to a large degree by ebay now, but it's still a risk. A risk I'm glad I took.

Lots of good ideas here. One of the best is to ask to pick the bike (or item) up in person. Scammers will almost always have some screwball reason why you can't. Then just walk away....

Default Um, Yes I did

Apparently you didn't notice that I noticed that you were poking fun at the scammer as well.



Did you notice the guy who replied to my post made a crack about a Rode Worrier? Apparently he knew I was goofing off.



Perhaps you were too caught up in your "all-knowing, all-seeing squidliness" to infer that.

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."



(See my above post for my experiences with the vaunted V-Rod.)
