The story goes like this. A rich kid bought the bike brand new. It was his first bike. He was out tryin to stunt one day. Layed the bike down. Once he got it to the motorcycle shop. He told them he didnt want it anymore. Because it he wrecked it. He told them if they would tell his insurance company it was totaled. They could keep the bike. And he would buy a brand new bike from them the same day. They did. He bought a brand new bike from them. They kept his old bike. Well they fully repaired the bike. Good as new. It was minimum damage done to it in the first place. The rich kid just felt it was beneath him to ride a bike that was once wrecked. So they then sold it to the guy I bought it from for $3000. He rode it for a couple of years(2 exactly). Then when he went to get it registered in his state. It just so happened that. Its a big hassle to get salvaged vehicles registered there. In VA as long as the bike can pass a regular inspection. Its good to go. I already asked around before I bought it. So since he couldnt get it title in his state. And he just bought two brand new bikes. I told him. I would buy it from him. I asked him "how much". He said $600. Gave him the cash. Got the bike. Im going to ride it for a few years. Then I will trade it in for something new. But right now. Im enjoying the fact I have no payments on it.
