craigslist sale turns into a debate...

Ok, here are the emails I sent this guy to try to purchase a 08 1000. He claims he paid 13.5 for it and sold it for even more. Then starts saying he will kill my 08 busa, title for title. But he can't race because the bike is sold. This guy is a joke. You have to read the emails from bottom to top. LEt me know if i was out of line or this guy has gone mad...

BTW the ad has been pulled off of craigslist but it basically said don't insult me with low ball offers. The bike must be sold by the Monday. It's sitting in my dinning room with 310 miles. I only rode it once blah blah blah....

First email...

LOL... where did that come from?

If you are so sure about that the fact that your supposedly sold 100 can beat my busa the fact that it is sold won't matter. I will buy the busa back if you win. If you want to run them we can run them but it won't be a far fight. I will acknowledge the fact that the 1000 is quick and will run. But the fact is unless we race on a course you don't have a chance... But to make it a fair fight i will bring my 07 1000 and we can see who is the better rider.

Talk is cheap. You can be whatever you want to be over email. Put you title up... or just shut up...

Let's get straight to this point bro, this bike stock will burn your busa, I would go title for title right now if it wasent sold.

Also, this is not a message board, if you have comments why waste time telling someone who has more knowledge about bikes than many about the market value, etc.

Thanks,

Ok, lets just get straight to the point. What is it going to take for you sell the bike? The price you paid has nothing to do with the market value of the bike right now. 13.5 is more then i paid you my 08 busa, much more.

Don't take it as an insult if people low ball you, they have to try. And you got to remember they didn't have to make an offer at all. The bike is only worth what some one is willing to pay.

that's hard to believe considering the redisgned 09 is out. come on man more then 13.5 for a stock 1000 when you can go get one from the dealer for 10K out the door. The color of the plactics doesn't mean anything. Your talking about special order, sell that to someone that doesn't know any better.

I Agree and take into consideration that the correct buyer of this bike knows exactly how much it is worth and to some it may be only a dollar because they can't ride or don't need it, however to the other, it may be worth 18 grand because it is a special order.

That's all, no hard feelings at all, it is sold Sent via BlackBerry by AT&T

I wont race any Gixxer Liter bike... unless you got a lot of road to play with, they can hurt you pretty good on the short stretch.. You gotta beat their socks off on the line or you are going to eat dust..

Very true, go to a drag strip & you will find this out. If the rider knows what he is doing you can get burned.
 
ya.. i know i probably offended someone.. and i actually love working with special needs kids.. but there's really just no better way to say it.
 
Ok, the point it this guy is claiming he sold a 08 GSXR 1000 for over 13.5... I found the add agian...

MUST SELL 2008 GSXR 1000 to pay Medical Bills unfortunately. Paid $13,500 in June at Dealer, ridden back from VA BEACH (it has 310 hwy miles on it and is currently sitting in the dining room of my apartment covered) due to it being a special order because of the RARE COLOR Scheme for the 2008 models which is the classic GSXR COLORS BLUE, WHITE, RED, SIlVER. Also including an ARAI Quantum II Matching Helmet. TITLE IN HAND. MUST GO ASAP! I will honor call priority so please make me a REASONABLE OFFER. DONT WASTE MY TIME OR YOURS WITH A OFFER THAT IS INSANE! I AM ANTICIPATING THAT THE BIKE WILL BE BOUGHT BY A PERSON THAT CAN ACTUALLY STAY ON THE BIKE IN FIRST GEAR AND ALSO KNOWS WHAT THEY ARE WORTH RESPECTIVELY. LIKE I SAID, I AM VERY FLEXIBLE ON THE PRICE AND WILL CONSIDER ANY OFFER WITHIN REASON I JUST UNFORTUNATELY HAVE TO LET IT GO BY MONDAY.... offer and give me a call if you have any questions.

Also full warranty all papers, receipt, title, 2 keys, ridden once back from dealer in VA BEACH TO dining room in Arlington. You won't find this COLOR anywhere! One of a KIND! Hands down this is the best bike on the Street!

Thanks,
Justin

Do you still have the GSXR 1000? If so how does $9800 sound?
 
:laugh: It was funny. I wouldn't want to go against them stop light to stop light those things are quick ... then again isn't that what a well concealed NOS sys is for.:whistle:
I love those gixxer 1K wouldn't trade it for a Busa. Need both and if you shopping for one guess you do too..:laugh:

Yeah I do need them both...:laugh: You see the problem started when a friend of mine left the 1000 at my house. It's still here as a matter of fact and i cant stop riding it.:thumbsup: It feels so light and quick.

plenty of retards in the world....I had a guy call wanting to trade an 06 1k for my 02 turbo 1k. He went on about how fast the 06 was and my 02 couldn't touch it....I asked him why he was interested in calling about trading for the 02 then....he just went on and on about racing....I hung up.
 
Ad is still up I found it last night.

I sat on the new 1000RR Honda last night... On my! the thing feels like a fly weight compared to the busa.. the CG feels really low and the bike feels like you could just flick it through the corners...
 
I think I'll pm an offer of 6500 tonight :laugh: and that I'm in VA with the cash... just give me the address so I can plug it into my GPS. :laugh:
