I like the look of them but I'd prefer polished.
It is a really tough call on the bike. Can you go see it as a perspective buyer?

Bring some friends and a pickup you can toss the ride into, if it ends up being yours.
Can you prove ownership via Serial#?

If it's yours, personally, I don't think you have to prove anything. I'd just take it and tell the guy he's lucky I don't rip his arms off and beat him with them.

Hrm, tough question. What documentation do you have? Have you registered the theft with the police? I suppose you could win the auction and then, with a police report in hand, nail the guy and get your money back. Can you get out to Burlington? Email the seller and say that you live in Burlington and if there is any way you could take it out for a test ride before the auction ends, just so you can see if it fits before you bid.

cavernmech: sweet.. I'm all over that. Apparently I'm in a band now and I'm meeting the guys at their rehearsal space this evening and I was looking for something to kill the time beforehand.

duppy: your slang makes me smile. I only know that type of stuff from my jungle days..

I'll get over it.

The driver's insurance company has already approved $7490 +PST & GST to buy a new bike, which means I don't have to replace parts this winter. Doctor has written enough Perc's to keep me high for a month and the lawyer has assured me that the settlement will cover this year's winter vacation for me and the family.

I think its a fair trade. If I'm gonna get hit I'm gonna profit.

From what I understand, the JIT was heckling Babs from the front row. Rather than tell him to fkuc off in true Babs fashion...she stage dived her immense girth upon him...fracturing not only his ribs but his pride also.

yeah T.J.....a meet up in the hood for the ride to the west side would be favourable. you got my cel # ?

no one took my bikering baits; c'mon i'm looking to start a fight.

somnambulant, if you're looking for a band name i recommend: "ron tarkinson's armada featuring herman menderchuck". Free coffee tomorrow to the first one who can name that reference.
