But I still thinkif he was legit, he'd have daylight pictures, and more information on the bike.

Why do you think that? It makes little sense.

Wasn't really thinking about the pictures at night. More like...wtf is up with the price he SAYS he paid and the price he was asking. That bike, new, probably cost less than half what he is asking now.

And, he never takes a whole picture. Seems like he either stole it, or if he bought it is just trying to sell it for way more than he paid for it. HOpefully nobody will fall for it.

Price is off by one order of magnitude.
Poster has no clue.
kawiracer995 might know how to price a Ninja.
But little else can be deduced.
