just looking at the bike should've been pretty obvious that its was a pile of trouble. no offense but no one in their right mind should've paid that much money for that bike.
5 months ago i bought my '03 with 9k miles, mint condition, garaged its whole life, and meticulously maintained for $3,600. i was without a bike for about 3 weeks, i could've easily gone and dropped $4k+ on a bike the day after i sold my previous one and had a "decent" bike with twice as many miles. but i waited til a found a good deal, and IMO it would've been worth waiting 2 months for!
NEVER go buy something just cause you can't wait or are anxious. i've had multiple friends buy cars JUST because of the rims/sound system/other mods. they all said "that's not the reason i'm buying it" and i'm not a retard so i knew they were lying out their asses. EVERY single time i've said "dont buy this car" and what do they do? buy it... and each one of them has regretted it.
my gf needed a car, we went and looked at one, it was a decent car, but i felt we could do better, told her not to buy it, she wanted it cause she needed a car, but she listened to me and said no. a week later i was able to find her a car for $1k less, 20k less miles, 2 years newer, and you could tell it had be maintained MUCH better. she still has it, loves the car and its been perfect for her.
rushing into something NEVER ends well.
