E-bay is for suckers.
I dont agree totally. You can find some really good deals on eBay every now and then :)

Probably the best thing you can do is to do your homework on the
item your buying. Know what it is. Do this by research on the inter
net and from friends. When I bought my Yamaha YZF 600R I spent
weeks just doing research on the bike before I put down the
money. I could tell you everything about it. When I sold it to the
guy who bought it from me, he did the samething. He told me he
had researched the bike and knew just what it was. That made the sale go easy for me. Both of us were happy. Don't make a
impulse buy without not knowing the features of the bike. Plus,
I would never buy a bike off Ebay then send someone money
without even seeing the bike in person.

Yea, thats about it. I really think Ebay should make a vehicle posting and a VIN # madatory. Then the consumer can do some research of where it is regestered, history, title status, etc...

I guess it is just "buyer beware"
