2011 Purchase Quandry

2683 Views 16 Replies 9 Participants Last post by  tytek

I am in the process of buying a very lightly used 2011 DL650.

If you had to travel a good distance to see and pick up the bike (i.e. far away as no good ones are available locally), what would you do to ensure that the bike was honestly represented (i.e. pristine, never in an accident, original owner, broken in properly though it only has 300miles on it).

How could one verify such things sight unseen (aside from pictures)?

How are long distance purchases amongst unknown individuals managed to be fair to both parties?

Thanks and I am looking forward to joining the stromtrooper community?

It has to be a really good deal to be worth your travel time and expense, and if he'll give that good a deal, why can't he find a local buyer? A local stromtrooper might look it over for the cost of a lunch, without any guarantee offered or expected on your part about his ability to comprehensively inspect a bike.

How much cheaper is that one vs. buying a new strom?
