    Default I hate Craigslist douche bags

    ive Been looking for a ninja 300 for my wife for a while... Was scanning through Craigslist and ran across an ad that said he was wanting to trade his '14 ninja 300 for an older CBR600rr... I sent him a reply asking how much older he was looking for... He was looking for an '05/'06.. Well after a week and numerous emails and a ton of questions we agree to trade and I even opt to drive to him... He contacted me with the address and asked if i could come up that day. He was 200 miles north of me and I tell him I'll be there noon the next day... My wife and load the bike up and head out the next morning.. We left about an hour late so I sent him a text saying so... We get about 60 miles from his house when he calls and says " i decided last night about 8pm ( an hour after he gave me the address)I just can't do it man, I'm sorry. The 600 is too much power for me." I'm not mad that he decided the 600 was too much power... I'm pissed that an hour after the phone call and me telling him I'd be there about 1pm that he didn't call or text and tell me he changed his mind... That's what pissed me off the most... It really bummed me out seeing my wife's face when I said he backed out and she realized she wasn't getting a bike... She was so happy to get a bike of her own.. but yeah pissed me off he didn't have the common courtesy to notify me he changed his mind but also bummed me out my wife was now bummed because she wasn't getting a bike which in turned passed me off more... I hate jacka$$es like that

    believe me, i know the frustration.

    was looking at a dirtbike on another forum; exchanged emails, basically told the guy if it was what he'd advertised, i'd give him his asking price. arranged to go see it that saturday afternoon (in napa, letting him know i'd be driving from fresno). wanted to take the little one to the Indy car testing at Sonoma(/Infineon/Sears/whever it is this month) raceway on saturday morning since we were going to be up that way, and since my truck is super cramped with 3 (single cab ranter), i went and rented a full size truck.

    as we're leaving the track, i go to call him and get an email from a few minutes earlier saying he sold it that morning.

    I guess no one knows what common courtesy is these days...

    If they want to sell it bad enough, they'll at least meet me half way.

    Communication Break Down,that's why most craigslist buyers stay local,not 200+ miles away.Lesson learned..

    I'd willing to drive if I can get a bike without having to pay $3500... I try to communication wide open when dealing with those on CL. I try not to leave any questions... But then you have the ones that just don't give a damn and have no common courtesy and will let you show up after they sell what you're there to buy or back out of the deal.

    Or the ones that says the trailer is in good shape and nothing's wrong with it. Then you drive 4 hrs to go find out that it's beat to **** and will need more than what the trailer cost to fix if.

    this is why when i decided a trailer would be nice to have, i just built one of the harbor freight kit ones, though this doesn't work if you need to haul a car. little bit of time, and i'm in it less than $400, including the trailer, materials and registration.
