ok so im in the market for a new bike. ive been browsing ebay for months just out of curiosity and interest but something caught my eye. an absolutely gorgeous yellow and black 2005 gsx-r 1000.
He is local, in fact in the same county. i contacted him this morning via message saying how i was interested. i gave him my phone number. within a half hour he calls back. he tells me hes willing to give it up for 9,500. he says two guys, not local, are fighting for the bike. he says highest bitter wins. out of stupidity i say ill offer 10k. a retard move to make i know. its alright i have my tricks too though. i am willing to pay 10k but if i can get away with 9500 then thats a fair price. my friend asks his motorcycle buddies and they all come to the consensus that 9500 is the max that i should offer for the bike. they have not seen it at all though. i will see it in person tomorrow. do you guys think this is a fair price? and have any tips?
as you can see, he has a slip on yoshi exhaust (that im not to fond of actually), tinted screen, HID lights (if theyre proven authentic), lo jack security, bike stand, and helmet and jacket. all included. should i try and snag this or be stubborn and say 9500 or nothing. 500 dollars is alot of course but personally, i dont mind paying a little more for something i like.
how much do you think all these add ons could have cost him? also i asked why hes selling and he says he has a family and wants to buy a boat. makes sense i suppose. we live in florida and you cant have 3 kids and a wife ride on gixxer. hes also willing to provide the stock exhaust too.
ok well im done. a little input would be appreciated.
