Very different sort of sales technique but it may work for him.

Oh man, that was great! I had to send that link out to all my BMW friends. Well, they used to be friends until they read the ad.

That's one unsatisfied BMW owner! Hope he likes the Ducati better. Someone should let him test ride a Versys, at least he couldn't gripe about the payments!

Indeed he did!

There was a comment in his post that he received over 7,000 hits in a week! IMO, I think there was some genius in his marketing tactic. Over the years, I've seen many adds like this (attention getters). From observation, these type ads reach such a great # of people that sooner or later, that cetain individual is looking for one and bam, a sale!

Where else, and how else, will one for sale post gain that many hits in 1 week (outside of posting a mint 1969 Convertible Camaro on ebay with the starting bid of $1). Genius marketing!! (language was a lil' out of line tho)

FWIW, I'm familiar with Jeffrey and with the saga of the two BMW's he's owned. He's had far more trouble with them than I've had with my Hypermotard.
