Title: Help Needed: View a Bike for me in Benoni?
Post by: eames8 on January 13, 2016, 05:13:52 pm

Don't know if I am posting this in the right section.

This one is for the Wild Dogs living in Benoni, Gauteng - I guess anyone in Johannesburg, but really don't want to inconvenience anyone.
To view a bike (F800) for me? The area is Goedeburg.

Unfortunately I don't know any Wild Dogs in Johannesburg, I have friends there who can help - the only thing is they just don't know enough about bikes.

Looking for someone to meet the seller (who I think I have vetted pretty well - I don't think it will be an elaborate trap or one of those sex things) and;
- take a kak load of pictures;
- test ride (if you are feeling up to it);
- tell me the condition of the bike (sprocket, chain, bearings, dings, scratches, type of usage);
- ask the reason for selling (wanna check if its the same as he told me);
- anything else you would usually do if the bike was for you I guess.

I think it would be best to send the pictures and then a voicenote on Whatsapp to me (then you don't need to type - and you can just talk about the bike).

To keep it simple view the bike in exchange for a R200 Takealot Voucher (or any Vendor you prefer) - that way don't need to deal with bank accounts and different banks and so on. And I will happily return the favour should you ever need someone to view a bike in Cape Town in the future.

I think there could be a section just for this on this forum - I know lots of you do it for each other for mahala - but I would rather incentivize it - because you don't know me :)

Also everybody loves Takealot :)

You are welcome to reply here or PM me if you can help. I will update the topic if someone helps me with the request.

The owner of the F800 does not perhaps commute with the bike during the week?
Might be easier for someone to view the bike in other areas.
I wish I could help you, but I doubt I'll be in Benoni area anytime soon.
