    haha same thing there - don't want a new bike cause i won't have anything to do to it

    and i run my bikes into the ground rather than sell em - why buy a machine if you aren't going to keep it? only reason i've upgraded to the nc35 is my nc30 was stolen

    i used to have an nc30 race prep bike in the uk, was a fantastic bike. i was gutted when i got ran over. it was imaculate until then. looked like this, but i had bridgestones not pirelli ,

    it was capable of beating r6's on tracks would go round corners like it was on rails :P

    cynicism

    a healthy dose of cynisism goes a long way....

    been looking for an XR650, there is one on Trademe - vendor goes into detail explaining an oil blow-by problem which would be 'easily fixed with some larger diameter tube'. Now, if you were selling the bike, you would spend the $5 on a new piece of tube, spend 10 minutes fitting it - then you don't have to even mention it - unless there is something else wrong of course..........

    and for the same reason, "new rings & pistons fitted over $XXXX spent just like new!!!!" is a BAD sign. This immediately means they let things get bad enough to sieze/ruin the motor, and having spent the money they want to get rid of it before anything else goes wrong.

    I know a guy who bought an FZR250 like that - 3 days later the crank snapped, obviously bent from the siezure that required the rebuild and never replaced
