I may be wrong, but I dont think 08's came with monster fairings. They look really close to ebay style ones.

04 Acura TL. Total grandma car.
06 Frontier Nismo. Meh, it's ok.
06 636. Just sits in the garage keeping everyone else company.
06 Pitster Pro GPX 125. It's planing on killing me.
07 GSXR750 Trackbike. The abuser.

I bought my 08 in February of this year for $5,900. It was in pretty good condition.

Do you really want to pay $2,000 more for some stickers and green rims?

$7500 is about $2000 more than I would be willing to pay for that bike.

I wonder what those plastics will look like under the stickers... If they are aftermarket, and the bike has been titled, someone probably dropped it, got scared, and got out, after covering up their mess.

New out of the box Triumph S3.

Then tell them to eat a dick.

The fact that this bike only has 19 miles is no different than a bike that has 5,000. 19 miles is enough to make it a used bike...just like a bike with 5K miles. I would NOT under ANY circumstances pay $7500 + for that bike unless I had money to throw away.

If you decide to ignore sensibility, don't give a second thought to the break-in procedure. Ride it like you stole it.

I'd pass......You can get a newer bike for $7000+ Pass up the offer, i'd bet that they would go down in price and give you a call back

because no one in their right mind will ever buy a 4 year old bike for more the Invoice price..

It would just sit there
