    I knew no bike could really be as fun as you describe. All along I suspected you guys were pulling a fast one on me. Now I have proof.



    According to the title of this Craig’s List ad, these bikes really aren’t all that exciting.

    I can explain it to you, but I can't understand it for you.

    "trail riding upgraded gear for more speed" Huh? He put a smaller sprocket on for more speed on the trail?



    " have the other gear for torque " I guess that means he has the larger stock sprocket that IS better for trails.



    When someone buys a bike named "Trailways 200" The name or engine size should give you a clue that it's not going to be a fast bike.....



    Seen so many people buy one then bitch cause it can't cope with 65+ mph... Then sell it a couple hundred miles later....





    TEST RIDE PEOPLE, TEST RIDE



    Anyone remember that TW for sale with the movie camera mounts and mortar tubes for around $5000.00 (With hitch carrier)

    Part of the description was "Would be awesome for filming a freeway chase scene."

    I responded to the ad for laughs asking him how he came to asking MSRP on a used bike. There was a guy asking $2500 for a used (good condition) all stock 2002 TTR 250 the other week, I told him blue book was only $1700 in EXCELLENT condition. Then he asked me if I was making an offer. LOL I told him I couldn't at his asking price, 3 days later he had dropped it to $1800 ...Some people are hilarious.
