Gary Behr, and purchasing my MV form him. NOT a happy experience

At the request of the MOD, Gary Behr was the previous owner of my MV.
I bought the 312RR last fall. It was a real bugger to get it to me in a reasonable time frame and even more so for the title.

It took him 5+ weeks to get me the title after having the bike for over a month (shipped to me in FL) I constantly had to harass him to get the title. I even had to drop the whole JAG thing on him (I am active duty). He then promptly sent the title. I was pretty pissed but me being nice theses days still tried to be friendly to him.

He stopped talking to me as if I had somehow annoyed him with bothering him about the title.

After a couple weeks of having the bike ( I am Army, very busy) I finally started going over the bike with what had been done to it. I noticed a few thing that immediately struck my attention.

--The Carbon fiber keyguard form the pics, was now plastic. In the pics it was clearly CF.

--The bar ends were different.

--The ECU was not a "race" ECU.

--Double bubble was gone on windscreen

--there was another CF part (I can't remember now as I have replaced a lot of plastic with CF) that was swapped with plastic after the purchase

Other then that, it wasn't a complete nightmare, but definite pain in the ass.

I ended up paying a reasonable price for a bike with BST rims and a lot of other mods, and very low miles (think it has 2k miles).

I would not do business with Gary again. The title not coming here, before the bike is unheard of. The title coming over 5 weeks later is actually illegal in many states unless dealing with a bank (they can have up to 6-8 weeks legally depending on the state).

He was rude at the end and very hard to get a hold of. I understand he is selling another MC...a tambo? I hope that no one here makes the same mistake in purchasing.

The fact he swapped out a handful of CF parts is ridiculous and is also illegal. I could have taken him to small claims, but the cost vs etc time etc etc.

Thanks all.

May you live as long as you want, but not want as long as you live

Oh my... I am reading these old threads... And find out I missed a lot over here haha!!

What a beast of a motorcycle!
It growls and rages and flies across the tarmac like a wild animal that has escaped the confinement of a cage and after merely waiting restlessly until the release, will not endure being locked up ever again.


Skye I miss you. L'essentiel est invisible pour les yeux.

Sorry to hear this, Snake_eyes.

Honesty is not Gary and Jen's strong point.
