    I answered an ad for a pair of Ohlins shocks to fit an oilhead BMW. I
    got a screaming deal on a pair of apparently unused/barely used shocks,
    that just happened to be set up for my bike and my weight. Is that bizarre?
    Then of all things:
    A Corbin double seat, with rumble seat back rest in immaculate
    condition, and they RIGHT colors turned up, and I am now riding around
    on a nicely upgraded suspension, and my ass is on this really comfy seat.
    And the R1100RS came from a craigslist ad , too, two years back, for a
    ridiculously good price.
    So it ain't all overpriced weird deals and scammers.; But you do have to
    be ready to pounce.
    Have I exhausted my craigslist karma?
    I no longer live in the same building with him (craig was our downstairs
    neighbor), so perhaps things will go back the normal 2005 GSX-rs in
    france for 2100 dollars, shipping through Midnight Escrow Service in

  2. Don't forget the greatly overpriced salvage title bikes ("It
    was just a little lowside, honest, no, this bike didn't go flying off
    of Grizzley Peak") being sold by someone who doesn't even OWN the bike
    but will instead just go to the auction if he finds a buyer.
