i would say the first one, only because exhaust and arai are expensive. the extra 2000 miles is no big deal. plus try and get him to drop it more

But to me A sounds better.

i would go with B - less mileage.... extras are ok
but try giving the A guy 55-5800$ and let him keep the helmets - would be a better deal

how are u planing to take the bike home though? this hussle will cost you extra.... is there any local deals available? r u far from NYC

i was just thinking that for u to go for 12-14 hrs round trip will be a hussle... another problem (possible) is that once u get there u'll find the bike is a little different from what u were told.... for example when i was shopping for my bike i would go to take a look at the bike and it's scartched pretty bad (def a fall) but the owner would claim he was carying a bag of groceries through garage and accidently touched the bike by the bag.... yeah that kind of stories :) or there is a lean on the bike, or the owner of the bike is in Iraq and his brother/sister sells it.... another scam was that a guy has too many tickets/underaged/whatever so he registers and insures the bike in his mother/aunt/sister/gf name hence the bike "was owned" by a girl... ridden hard by a guy in reality...... also, most riding girls i know ride either a cruiser or a sport touring kind of bike not a super sport.... the few who ride the sports, ride real hard or at least have enough experience to know how to ride the r6....
if u decide to go, make sure the seller understands u r not kidding and that u got a long way to drive....
still think about waiting until the sell season begins about feb/march - perhaps u'll find a better/"neighborhood" deal...... dont rush b/c as i understand it, the only thing u can ride in your area in the winter is a snowmobile
just my 15 cents :)
