Sorry about the title, no news about a real accident thank goodness. I was going to buy a 2008 650 tomorrow. We had a price worked out. It would be a 3 hour drive for me to get down there. I had directions and an arrival time. They were even going to entertain my 7 year old while we did business.

Then the phone call came at 8:00 tonight. A 'relative' wanted the bike and he could not turn them down was the story. Probably true, but being whipped is one thing and keeping your word is another. This bike was priced about $1500 below most other 08's and it was yellow. Just what I wanted until the knife was slipped into my back.

I'll find another one, it won't be warm enough to ride here in Ontario for a long time...:headbang::furious::headbang:

Just be ready to pounce

Have cash on hand
Make the call
Drive and pick up

All my "Great" deals were from SPEED before some one else can make a move

Use search tempest on craigslist and spring

"Relative"= other guy talked more money. Relax & move on, there's always another deal out there IF! your patient.
I hear it too often at work - I am just too nice. Damn right this DB shopped for a higher price in the few hours after we made our deal. And cooked up a nice lie. Thread closed, I'm not going to cry about it.
