Follow up to my "new guy here" thread.



Didn't buy the bike. Owner was shady. Wanted cash in hand (totally understand that part) but he was VERY pushy and adamant that he wanted rid of the bike by this weekend. When I questioned him about a notary in his area that would be open for us to use to sign over the title, he said that we didn't need one (yeah right!) and that once he had the cash he would just sign the title and give it to me.



Way to fishy for my liking. So now I'm looking at a new TW come spring, from a reputable dealer..

You probably did the right thing.

Be patient and buy the best you can afford from the most reliable source and enjoy worry free riding for years to come.

Another safe bet is to call the local sheriff's office and have them run the VIN to make sure it is not stolen. Also check that the engine numbers match.

Don't let one "shady" experiance throw you off. Too many used low milage screaming deals out there to be had. I just bought a 2009 TW200 with 450 miles for $3,200. This bike is bling, bling factory fresh.

If a seller isn't willing to show you the title so that you can verify the numbers match the bike before shelling out a penny, he doesn't have it. Wise move to walk away from this one.
