so i live in idaho and am a member of motoup.com our local group of riders all post and share stuff much the same way we do here. Any way i was posting asking for help in locating a bike and got this response.

How about a '99 R6 with VERY LOW MILES (7200). It already has a new paint job on it. I bought it in '99 new. I decided after 3 years that it had to be transformed into something unique. There were too many blue and white R6's in town. It is now turned into the "Virgin" race replica. The main color is Dodge Viper Red. It no longer has the Kerker carbon pipe. It has the stock pipe, K&N air filter, new chain and sprockets, and good tires.
The bike is collecting dust in the garage and must go! My dad is getting after me to pay him back for the snowmobile he purchased for me.
I'm asking $4500. Let me know if you are interested.

That is a beautiful bike. If I had the money and was in the area, I would snatch that up with the quickness!!!

Not that it NEVER happens, but sportbikes rarely get a respray w/o the fairings having kissed asphalt. Just an all too obvious FYI. Looks real nice, though. Just have it checked by someone in the know.

Sounds good. I'm not trying to shit on exciting news, but I know what it feels like to be bike shopping. Once the "fever" sets in, all kinds of reasoning gets pitched to the curb. :banana

yeah i know what you mean but my father instilled the asshole gene in me so i haggle like martha stuart in jail jonesing for somthing frilly in her cell.
yeah im the guy that people take with them so they dont buy the first thing they sit on. im definately excited about getting a bike but quality is way more important to me than quantity of bikes i own. :beer

The thing that concerns me is why the aftermarket pipe isn't on there anymore? Could he have dropped it and messed the pipe up? Then again, he could have just sold it?

Looks nice! As long as it checks out, and you can talk him down to around $4k, it sounds like a great deal! Go for it!
