WARNING
If you are reading this then this warning is for you. Every word you read of this useless fine print is another second off your life. Don't you have other things to do? Is your life so empty that you honestly can't think of a better way to spend these moments? Or are you so impressed with authority that you give respect and credence to all who claim it? Do you read everything you're supposed to read? Do you think everything you're supposed to think? Buy what you're told you should want? Get out of your apartment. Meet a member of the opposite sex. Stop the excessive shopping and masturbation. Quit your job. Start a fight. Prove you're alive. If you don't claim your humanity you will become a statistic. You have been warned...... Tyler

Berfore I bought my bike I looked on ebay. I would only bid on a bike that was close enouogh for me to personaly pick up. I could never get myself to send a check on a bike site unseen and hope that they ship the bike. There are just too many scam artist out there waiting to rip off good people.

i bought two cars online. never sent a payment till i was there to pick it up.
one worked out wonders, and served me for many years untill the insurance company decided i shouldnt have it anymore,
the other was a nightmare, it looked well, but had more problems then i cared for, the owner obvously knew it, and tried to get rid of it as quickly as possible.
just goes to show ya i guess.

I've actually had really good experiences on ebay... Sold my mustang to a gentleman in New Mexico. He paid for it through a wire transfer, flew out to Jersey and drove it home.

Then I bought my bike from a nice guy from Tennessee. Could have gone wrong, but as long as you do your homework you'll be fine. And on buying the bike sight unseen... I've had numerous shops tell me its the cleanest 98 they've seen in a long time. So basically I got lucky i think, but like stated above, buyer beware, do background checks, and realize that risky deals usually have higher payoffs.
