    I just won another TW200, after waiting for 7 days with no activity, and a Sniper tried (unsuccessfully) with 45 seconds to get it.



    Has anyone else experienced this ??



    is it possible, is it ethical, for potential TW buyers to try to communicate BEFORE the final 60 seconds ?



    I have almost acquired my 20 TW's I was hoping to have to open a shop in the Caribbean on the Island of St john ..



    almost there !



    The bike came with a larger plastic fuel tank, aftermarket exhaust, and the original stock items as well !



    it also came with the road tires, which I much prefer !



    I am sorry, Mr. Sniper, you did not win this bike !



    There are two more already on eBay !



    Best of luck, ..

    Snipers are a fact of life, at both "in person" and online auctions. Just be happy you won if you actually wanted it.

    The only way to defeat the sniper is to be the sniper. It really makes no sense to bid early on online auctions. With 5 seconds to go you go big or go home.

    I always use auctionsniper.com and never bid (show your cards) until the final 7 seconds of bidding. That 2009 was nice and ebay has been bringing premium prices for TW's so I listed my 2006 today (the one with 794 miles also listed here in the forum classifieds with no interest )I will be listing my pristine 2009 TW200C with only 315 miles later today. It's a one owner from Huntington Beach driven around a residential neighborhood buy a local Police Officer so it's never been on dirt. I also have a nice 2008 TW200C that had 415 miles, also from SoCal that will be listed on ebay as soon as my current bikes sell
