Every time I see an ad for a helmet or boots with "worn once" or "worn twice", "never used" - I think "BULLSHIT". Why?
Because there are SO many of them. Probably 30-50% of the ads seem to list that. Am I to believe that so many people are such bad decision makers that they'll throw $300+ off on a set of boots or a helmet and then realize that they don't actually have a motorcycle?
Or perhaps they bought the gear and then their bike was stolen. Immediately. Why would I want such a bad-luck set of gear then?
Some of these people are telling the truth but most of them have got to be overstating the newness of their gear. Just my 0.02....
Now the flaming commences...bear in mind this is simply my opinion - obviously everyone is welcome to their own.
