I wouldn't do it just because of the CASHIER CHECK. There was a post I saw on here where the guy said he got a check from US BANK and it was a phony. I did get back with him by writing a shitty email telling him to shove that check up his rear end and then report him.

I get an email like that every time I try and sell stuff online. Its a total and complete SCAM. Even the email looks the same. Just ignore it. Or string him along. DO NOT SEND HIM MONEY. If you reply, it will go down like this. He will send you a check for more than you are selling the bike for. He will ask you to send him the balance right away via western union. You ask for 5000, he sends 8000. You send him 3000 via western union. You just got screwed out of 3000.

Either it's legit or they are getting better at sending scam emails.

I suspect the latter.

Tell him you want to purchaser to show up with cash and you will meet at the local police parking lot. That way you know neither of you will get ripped off.

Don't give out someone your home address. Some theives like to collect home addresses, then come over and rip off the bikes.

Nice knee drag photo!

Ironically, I just purchased a motorcycle in Texas using a friend to pick up the bike. It was so close to what the scams do. The difference is I could prove I was a long time ThumperTalk.com member and a KTMTalk.com member.

i knew the ones i got were a scam since i left very good instructions on how to contact me, yet the emails i got (which are near identical to those) went to the email i signed up with. not the one i said to use in the add.

mine was like that cept a different name, and a different career. its like a template they use, just insert random things to make it sound real.

I have drove across states to pick up bikes for friends also. but I paid cash.

Thanks for the compliment and thanks to the girlfriend who took the picture :thumbsup:
