I am trying to respond to a thread in the for sale area.

I have been trying to figure out why I am unable to post (reply ) to a listing in a for sale thread. I am a new owner of a WEEstrom and recently joined this site. I Believe I have done everything to set up my account, but it sends me to a page saying it could be many things, like account approval or activation. Does this happen often, how long does it take to get an account activated?
Thanks, Alex.

At the top of the For Sale section, there is this:

Quote:
For Sale You must have more than 20 posts and be a registered member for more than 20 days before posting in this section
I assume this also means you can't respond to a post.

Did you try sending a PM to the seller? I'm not sure if that's possible for a new member or not.

Yes! That is the problem. I had the same problem when I started. The problem is that most people (I'm guilty too.) don't check their PMs. I can see that it is to prevent people joining just to sell stuff, but joining just to buy stuff?? Sorry, just an early frustration resurfacing. . .

Access to the forum is either permitted or not. There is no way for the software to tell whether the poster is buying or selling. Besides, newbie deals are chancier, whether they are sending merchandise or money.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I was able to contact the seller directly, I completely missed the 20 posts requirement. Thanks everyone for clearing that up,
Alex
( also, anyone know off hand? Is the bill Mayer seat for the vee lower than the stock seat for the wee? )

The stock Vee seat is 20mm taller than the stock Wee seat. I would imagine a custom seat isn't going to make things easier for the short legged.
