    99 CBR600 F4
    24k miles

    It has been test ridden by a guy my dad knows who really knows his bikes and the guy said it rides really smooth and is really fast. I'm picking it up for $3000 including a rear stand and bike cover. I can't freakin' wait :joshers:

    I would have to agree, while it seems to be a pretty solid bike, i would really try to talk him down to 2500 and spend the extra 500 doing what you can w/ it...

    haha, you just described a more expensive alternative to shipping which also adds miles to the bike, not very tempting :hs:

    thanks man, everyone in this thread is saying I should hold out for 2,500 but I've been looking at ebay/cycletrader/newspaper classifieds/online forums for a month and this is the best deal I have found so far @ 3k. I just can't wait to get the damn thing down here :naughty:

    fuck buying anything like this without at least seeing it in person. especially something you know is crashed and could likely have hidden damage

    You lack reading comprehension my friend. My father and a friend who rides checked out/rode the bike for me. Between the pictures and what they told me I know exactly what I'm buying.
