So I'm selling off my beloved Speedy. 1050 ccs of ass-puckering, arm-wrenching, wheel-lofting fury. This bike is a demon.
Had a serious offer today on it, but the buyer is obviously a noob. From the questions, comments and "inspection" of the bike, I could tell they hadn't been riding long at all.
This is NOT a bike for noobs. I almost feel like I shouldn't sell it to them, because I would feel completely guilty if they smeared themselves across the grill of a semi.
I know, there are lots of examples of new riders doing just fine on litre bikes, but there are even more stories about over-ambitious riders flying off into the rhubarb ...
But that being said, the bike market is pretty soft, even for well-priced rides.
So thoughts? Comments? Would you sell a rocket to a noob with an itchy trigger finger?
