    And a snip at only. . .
    That's the first one I've seen advertised with any miles on it.

    I suspect most people buy them to gaze at in the garage. I've seen three of them advertised in NZ with less than 5,000 km in the last six months.

    The Cafe brigade of all manner of motorcycles ... on any Sunday ... that display a few square meters of chrome and polished bits. The owners with two days growth on their face ... because they have to shave come monday.

    Pretty much.

    Another bike that seems prone to extremely low mileages is the BMW R1200c cruisers from the early 2000s.

    I've seen three of four of them for sale recently with less than 8,000km on the odo - even though they stopped selling them new in 2005. An extreme example is this one on trademe which was registered new in NZ in 2001 and travelled only 22km before its first WoF in 2008 (according to the Carjam records).

    Speaking of Bimotas I guess the bird with the pointy boob job isn't included

    I doubt if you could afford her.

    She does however ... feature with other bikes ...

    EVERY photo she is scowling. She presumably doesn't want to do the stupid cheesecake photo but her BF insists and says it makes it easier to sell the bikes. I mean it works to a limited extent - the majority of motorcyclists are straight men (present company excluded obvs) who want to look at tits. But honestly what she is supposed to be selling is allure and the thought that maybe, if she got to know us during the the transaction she would turn it up... obviously a different transaction to selling a bike. But who'd want to if she had a face like she sucked a lemon all the time? Fucking smile or at least look interested.

    From the advert; 'This is one of the best in riding comfort and handling.'

    Respectfully, I disagree.

    To be fair she has lost some weight since a few years back when people were offering their misogynistic comments on her appearance. Maybe she's a hellfire rider.
    Maybe she might get her tits out for the photos he doesn't load up on TM. Damm.

    There's this thing called Phasion and it involves size 6 (American size 0) stick wimmin that haven't smiled since their last (since vomited) meal. I think you are not allowed to smile or you gain a 1/2 kilo.

    Elle was the last one that did but it didn't catch on when she gained a 1/2 kilo and looked attractive to men.

    Sigh. Elle.
    I've been told. Dreaming`s free.
    Think I'll go, back to sleep.

    Pedantic perhaps?

    "Emaculate for the age of it." This is a variation on the often seen, "Immaculate for it's age." It's either immaculate or it's not. The age, or lack of it, is irrelevant

    I once saw "Ejaculate" as the very word used to mean the same as used there ...

    There has been a lot of talk over the years about her not smiling on KB on this very forum.
    From what I understand she is not happy about it.
