I wouldn't if it checks out like I said...

Both bikes seemed like they've had good homes. Girl owned is usually good and whenever someone just doesn't plain ride/like/have time to ride is a good thing.

That's how I snagged my 08. The previous owner traded his stang for it and after he rode it for a year he just didn't really like it. Then he never rode it.

I guess I'll shoot for the '07! It would be a pretty sweet deal to save $800 and fix those hideous silver mids.

Are the 08's like graphite? It's hard to tell. I'd rather replace with black personally. Like this! https://www.600rr.net/vb/showpost.php...postcount=3872

That bike.... is seriously better than sex.

Red 08 had black, orange 08 had graphite!

Ok guys, opinions one last time please:

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/mcy/3795655970.html - $6000 - I can maybe talk him down a little bit.

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/mcy/3774585748.html - $6200 maybe I can talk him down a little more, he said he would like 6200. This one was dropped so the lower and mid are scratched up.

http://atlanta.craigslist.org/atl/mcy/3761690489.html - Not sure how much I can talk him down

I would personally go for the 3rd one. It seems to be the best of the three and it has a few mods. I would not pay that price for it though. I pay 6k for an 08 Graffiti in 2010. I would try to talk him down to 5800 or so. It is hard for someone to turn down a cash offer when you have it in hand.

How bad was #2 dropped? Did he replace anything or does it still have the OEM scratched plastics on there? Was it a drop or lowside/highside?

Personally #2 and #3 I like.

I think someone (not himself as he claims) was just on the bike and fell over to the side while standing still. The damage is still on the oem fairings, but it's really not bad. He sent pictures, but it's really hard to tell. The lower has some scratches on the outer most part, and a few scratches on the upper.

Here is one of the photos he sent me.. You can barely see the damage. ImageUploadedByMO Free1368199580.607024.jpg
Sorry for the terrible quality. Uploaded from my cellphone.

#2 or #3 are looking like the two best. It all depends on if you can handle riding a bike with minor scratches on the fairings. If you can get the 09 down to 6k I would probably take it. Even at 6200 you're not getting a bad deal, IMO. I would just start talking #2 and #3 down and see which one would give me the better deal.

Just thought I would let everyone know I went for the red '09 with 2500 miles (pictured above). I talked the guy down to 6K and I'm picking her up today. Thanks for all of the advice!
