need advice on sale of bike

I received a private message from someone who joined the forum yesterday with no post and no other info stating they were interested in my Senna. I am a pretty savvy guy and want to know if anyone has any advice as to what to watch out for.

Just use common sense when moving forward. Don't let go of anything until you are paid in full. Let him arrange shipping if he is out of state.

Keep in mind that there are a ton of ways your bike may pop up in a general search on the web. I've often come across parts that I'm after by doing a google image search with the words "For Sale" included. I've then had to register on the forum that the part was being sold on to contact the seller.

Best of luck!

Do not, under any circumstances, accept an offer where the buyer doesn't haggle over the price and says he will send his own shipper out to pick it up and the shipper will pay you.

Do not accept a bank check unless you are positive it is good. It is easier to make a bogus check than a bogus $100 bill so cash is best. Or, bank wire transfer is fine. A fed funds wire to your account is as safe as you can get.

Use common sense and make sure your terms are met.
Price/source for pay/timeline/location/delivery/etc.
Good luck!

Ride fast and furious but live to ride another day!

Yes, selling a Senna might lead to withdrawal symptoms, so beware.

Don't let the bike go until you have funds in your bank or in hard cash in your hand,my friend just got scammed for 1500 for a campervan that does not exist. It was done through western union so beware.
