    I just looked closer at the pics. That thing has been down on both sides! The left puck is all scuffed up and appears to have a slightly smaller dent in the frame as compared to the other side.

    Just be honest when ur selling something, nothing wrong with a beat up buell if the price is right.

    I also have a pretty hard time believing the mileage. After all the odo. Is only stored in the cluster. It wouldn't be hard to find a low miles peice on Ebay. Is there any VIN history to back up the claimed mileage?

    I may only be 34, but I've heard a BS used vehicle story or two in my day too and this things reeks of BS

    Yes, they are a tough crowed because they know the Buell line of bikes very well !

    Also, even if you were a senior member here, they would have done the same thing to you. That's what makes this such a good forum.

    Ok, I'll give you the benefit of the doubt... maybe you are presenting the bike as you were sold it. It appears to have been low speed low sided a couple times either way.
    I'm not going to run a VIN history on it, but I hope anyone who might be interested in it does.
    That frame dent would've totaled the bike IF anyone made an insurance claim on it. And that doesnt mean that it would have a salvage title either folks. In some states if the value of the vehicle is low enough and the vehicle is old enough it can keep a "clean" title even if it's damages have exceeded its agreed market value. Although if it was claimed, a VIN history will show that it was a total loss.
    So, any how... GLWS OP.

    Your first post was to sell a bike that had a questionable past that you had just recently purchased. You obviously didn't bother doing any research on it and either, bought the story they fed you without checking it or worse, made up the story and you have a problem with us seeing through the BS, really !
    If I were you (thank G-D I'm not) I would stick to your other forums ( aviation, really ? ) or better yet go and sell them the bike, since your well accepted there, they might even believe your story.

    OP: You may not appreciate my candor, but it is meant to help you better yourself

    Myself (and others here), have seen your type of purposefully misleading ad to prey on less educated buyers before. The actual Buell isn't the actual problem here.

    And Holy Lord, for your own sake... grow some skin. The members here are a little rough around the edges (awesomely ), but this is a very nice, highly educated, honest, forum. We'll help anyone who needs it, but we can also smell BS from an airport away.
