Taken directly from the ad:

"This bike has been dropped a number of times (never at speed) and has some cosmetic issues"

I guess he could claim it tipped over and then just slid down a very long and very steep driveway...either that or this person has a different concept of "at speed" than I do.

Crash isn't a drop, right?


If my mind wanders, should I follow it?

Depends on the definition of speed wink I slid my rt down on some ice at a speed, 30ish and got similar looking damage. guess it's where the pressure points are between metal and asphalt/concrete.

Two story garage - bike fell at the top of the stairs (zero speed drop) and slid to the bottom.

Or maybe a zero speed driveway tip over, at the top of this driveway:

That's the first pic I wanted to post but the place I found it online had it in a non this forum friendly format - or so I thought anyway.

Stupidity has no limits: architect, builder, and stupidest of all, anyone who buys that house.

the whole thing might've worked, if they hadn't put in that sidewalk. idiots. You'll need a 6" lift kit to get in the garage.

it will be great for getting your bike into the back of the pick up, no ramp needed.
