Fellas - New to the forums here. Thanks for having me!
I am trying to finalize a deal with a seller in NY State (I'm in PA)
From what I have seen on the market this is a good deal, but I want your opinion on it. Here is the link:
I thought maybe this is a member's ride and someone would recognize it. Bike is said to be in good condition with newer tires, never laid down & stored indoors. Owner told me it was his son's bike that he used to learn on & now needs the money so hence the sale. Owner has a BMW1200 that he rides so I'm certain he is not new to riding.
One thing that alarmed me is as when I threw out my cash price - he accepted it straight away without trying to squeeze any more money out of me. At $3900 it's at least $500 below KBB.
Am I overthinking this decision? Is the market for these bikes as such that deals like this can be had? Perhaps he just wants to sell and get out from under it -OR - has it sustained a drop/accident and he's willing to take whatever for it?
I definitely want the bike (a versys that is!) and know it fits me well (I'm 6'0" & 230). Sat on one at a dealership and loved it. In any case - any insight on this would be helpful.
Furthermore - I am buying the bike in New York State & transferring it to Pennsylvania. Anyone have any knowledge of NYS laws and what documentation is required?
One last thing - I am new to riding and have a general idea of what to look for when inspecting a bike. Would it be y'alls reccomendation to take it to a dealership and have it inspected before purchase?? There is a Kawi dealer about 6 miles away from his house. Just want to cover all my bases and not be trailering a POS back home.
Thanks in advance for your help & look forward to joining this community as someone who just enjoys the ride!
