What am I missing here? Insane deals...

First off I kind of feel bad posting a bunch of subjects on buying bikes in the daily rider section... there ought to be a section for buyer questions or something...

Anyhow... I google searched for some bikes and came up with this classified ads place... monkeyads.com

I ran a few searches, first for gsxr's then for r6's.
Go run a couple, try "r6" for instance: http://www.monkeyads.com/Search12.asp

Now I know if something sounds too good to be true then it almost always is... but theres got to be a dozen r6's listed seemingly in near perfect condition 1999 and up under 4 g's.
Most of these bikes seem about 2k cheaper than you'd find them elsewhere...

I've got to be missing something... what is it?

I'm fairly sure my search for "cbr 600" turned up some even more puzzling sales...

That's what I would think if it were one or two. But theres tons of deals. Some that go from outrageous cheap have to be a scam up to just pretty cheap all the way up to normal prices...

Contact the seller. If he mentions the bike is in europe, its a scam

Made about a dozen calls:

2 wrong numbers
about 5 unanswered
about 5 more disconnected lines
the 2nd one i listed for the 01 r6 was for real but sold. that one didn't seem outrageous, just cheap.

Hey I found a 2005 Black R1 with only 1000miles on it for $3500! I called the guy and he said he still has it and will ship it to me for free. I gave him my CC # and he said he could have it to me by Christmas! Thanks!
