Default Re: Need some advice please!

Last little motorbike I looked at, I asked the seller to start it and show me how it ran.
...he started it quickly, warmed it up, and rode a few reasonable laps around his yard.
Then I asked him to ride by me a couple times on the street.
He did so. Again, at reasonable speed.

Even though it was beat, it gave me an idea how he had been operating it.

We had any number of young fellows bring dirtbikes into the car dealership trying to get hi-dollar trade-in value for them. They were covered with sand and had just been to the Pismo Dunes! lol Sand is a marvelous abrasive! External AND internal.

Good luck
My goal is cheap, reliable, personal transport, below the tax collector radar. Fun counts for a lot!
