I am looking at a 450. I found it pretty cheap but the only problem is its really far away. I talked to the owner and he agreed to ship it but how would you feel about doing this knowing you cant start it or test ride it? Its an 07 limited addition and looks really clean. I'm just not sure about not being able to start it. Just seeing what you would do. Thanks for all replies

I would never buy a used bike without seeing it in person and riding it.

Well i think i'm gonna buy it but i'm gonna look at it. its 400 miles away but its an 07 450 and i can get it for 2750. It looks and sounds legit and good condition but we'll see when i get down there.
Thanks for the replies

yeah 400 miles isn't to far to drive. Its probably a good idea to have some back ups in-case its roached.

meet the guy halfway between where you live and he lives with the agreement that you will buy it , if it is in the condition he claims it to be.

Well i'm not sure about it anymore. I was going to go all the way and he knocked off 200 dollars for gas but the auction says ended with the buy it now price so i dont know what happen. We'll see in about 2 hrs if he calls back. I think i might be a little bummed. I dont know why people cant stick to their word anymore!!!

be careful. I have looked for a friend and declined the first bike we went to look at. I wrote a thread on the entire deal in CRF250R
