Re: The Craigslist Thread

Not a scam! Picked up the BMW 650GS on Sunday. After sitting for 3 years, it wouldn't start. It's at Wild West now. Best case scenario is new battery & flush fuel system. Worst case is new battery, fuel pump and injectors at $1500. Ethanol sucks!

And that, Gentlemen, is why I don't build a camper on my trailer. No matter how hard I tried, I could not get a factory finish, or in his case even a finish.

Good deal! I hope it just needs a battery... I just sold an '09 that I beat the crap out of and it was a great bike.

"If interested please call"? I'll bet HIS phone is ringing off the hook. Do you get the feeling that if you sat down on that thing, you'd be sitting on mouse pills?

Scary just looking at the pics. I see the frame breaking right at the seat in about 20 miles. Like the Lady said, just say no!
