Re: Was this a bad deal

Looks good. I cant even see the discrepancies in the tank. The carbon goes well with the Red. :Thumbsup

Shafted definatly does not come to mind when I see it. haha. 3700 total with 1850 of that in cash. Id do it.

You need some new tires, bro! And to get in it for 3700 bucks is a pretty good deal, just ride the thing and enjoy!

Re: Was this a bad deal

$3700 for a 2007 with a clean title in good shape is a STEAL.

Re: Was this a bad deal

yea the rear tire has tread but i do need a front for sure, and the tank is boogered pretty good i just dont have pics of it i mean it still works just looks like a dropped the bike everytime i pull up which bothers me a little. And unfortunatley it is not a clean title it will always have the history of being dropped but it is pretty clear it was dropped not layed down while riding. Like i said everything is just about mint except the tank.

Re: Was this a bad deal

Yea i felt like i got a real decent deal but the guy made me second guess it. The carbon fiber really made me want it i love the contrasts. Any suggestions on a good quality front tire its got pirelles now i may stick with that

Re: Was this a bad deal

Ur buddy is probably just a cheap dude. That's a pretty decent deal. Ask him where he can get a bike like that for 2500. I'm sure it's happened but not very often at all.

Re: Was this a bad deal

That's a great deal as echo'd above. I wish I had only $1850 out of pocket for an R6. Even with the gun trades you came out on top. Ride the hell out of that thing and enjoy!

Re: Was this a bad deal

did no one else read that it was a salvage title? I'd pay $3000 tops for it. Depending on which state you live in, getting a rebuilt title can be a nightmare (MA comes to mind). Dont know about GA. TX and NH are relatively easier to get a rebuilt title.

Insurance buy back for that would have been ~$2000-2500 (guesstimating). So the seller got some $$ in pocket after this deal for sure.
