Can any Detroit people check out this bike?

Yes, I'm still considering getting a bike. Found one that I would like to have up in Detroit. It's listed on eBay, but I'm kind of concerned because of the spelling of "tyres". Why would someone in Detroit spell it that way?

I also just realized that's NOT an '05 R6. Looks like an '04. My guess is that this is a scam.

While the title says, 2005, I see in the text that it says '04. Don't worry about it, folks, if I'm going to buy a bike, I want what I want, which is a 2005 or newer R6.

I am curious if it is a scam. You should tell him your buddy is going to stop by and need to get directions to the bike. I'd peep it for you!! But just to see what his deally is!

What's the "W" word towards the end of the descrip? The guy can't spell that's for sure.... that could be a good indication he/she is from D-town. However, the green moss on the ground means he's lieing or that's a OLD pic!

It's a scam. He didn't answer a single question that I asked. Here is the e-mail response that I received when I asked where he was in detroit, if the bike had been dropped and the specifics and I also asked for a picture of the other side of the bike.

Maybe I'll try to log onto one of my OLD ebay accounts from when I lived in Utah and put in a bid of $25,000.
