I offered them 9k cash for that very same bike a year ago this month. They turned me down flat and went into a little tizzy about it even. Oh well. Glad someone is enjoying it now.
That happens quite often. If someone has a bike for sale, and you make them an offer, they'll often go into a little act involving the words "insulting", "lowball", "gettoudahere", "I've got more than that in it", and such like.
Then, later, you find that they sold it to someone else for your offer or less, once the wolf was at the door and they realized they were asking way more than the market would bear.
They seldom come back to YOU, because they already called you a low-life lowballing thief or something, and they're embarrassed.
We've heard a lot of stuff on here about "Motorcycle Mall" anyhow ... ::) I have no personal experience but there's usually fire under that smoke somewhere ....
