Title: My 1st 690R - disappointment over
Post by: Amsterdam on July 22, 2014, 04:50:35 pm
Saw this one on Gumtree last night.  2014, approx 500 kms and that for R95 000.  Phoned this morning, agreed to pay the asking price and was already in Paarl from (Hout Bay) to run some errands before continuing to Robertson to pick it up when the seller SMS-ed to say he can actually not sell this bike.   ??? Unfortunate, I was getting really excited.  Now the looking continues.  Anyone else wants to sell their 2014 one?

No idea why he changed his mind.  Maybe someone offered more than the asking price.  Anyone ?  :peep wall:  But that is how it goes, it is not sold until you have the money and it is not yours until you are riding it home.  There will be another one......

At R95K for a 2nd hand bike why not just save for a month or two and buy a new one at R108K. You might even get a few grand discount if you negotiate hard enough.

+1... then you know what the bike's been through as well. Also you will be the first owner... good for re-sale if & when that happens.

I went to KTM this morning and bought a new one.  With Akrapovic, bash plate, small screen, hand guards and small indicators.  Delivery tomorrow, Cederberg this weekend - life is great.  :ricky:
