I would never buy a used bike that I was not able to test drive. Things may look okay in pictures, and VIN numbers may not report accidents, however, you can't account for any engine abuse or mis-installed components which have irreversibly (at least cost-wise) damaged the bike. It sucks having just shelled out $$$ for a bike and realizing you have to put a lot more $$$ in it to get it running correctly. I hope everything works out well for you...

Opps...my bad. When I bought a used bike some years back I asked at which dealer it was purchased and then called them with the VIN number. The dealer usually keeps a record of this.
