eBay kicks ass... just read through the seller ratings and stuff VERY carefully first. Also, if shopping eBay, make sure you know what you are buying... about 50% of the time if it is a new item, you can get it cheaper elsewhere. Definitely use Paypal... this protects you AND the seller. Personally, I refuse to send money orders or anything like that. It is either Paypal, Visa, or nothing. That way, if you do get stiffed, there is a course of action you can take to get your money back. Since you are buying a bike, I would assume you will be going to pick it up. Try to make arrangements (PRIOR to commiting to buy or bidding) in regards to paying 100% in person.
Read careful and do your homework... the internet is a safe place to buy. I don't even go into stores anymore if I don't have to.
Also... don't fall for the "I am stationed in Europe and trying to sell my bike in the US" scam. That has been floating around ebay forever.
A friend of mine bought his Gixxer from VA through eBay. I have purchased my last 3 cars through ebay.
