    Nasty R1100RT... telling it like it is

    I came across this truthful ad and it was a bit funny. If I lived closer, I'd at least go take a look at this machine.

    Hilarious ad. I like the second photo where it is parked with the dumpster as background.

    Looks totally uncared for but runs like a top. Must be an 1100!

    Somehow I get the sense that the writer of the ad is a fan of Douglas Adams.

    Oh c'mon. A little (more) black duct tape will clean it right up.

    Wish I were closer

    It has low miles for the year. The paint will buff out. The seats can be replaced; who would want the stock seats anyway? The side cases can be repaired and painted. Seems a fair price; but I bet $1200 in cash would take it.
