Is this trade good?

Hey guys im new to the forums. I am also a new rider. I am looking to make a trade this week for a 2003 Yamaha r1. Bike is in excellent condition from what i seen in pictures, he is going to bring it out this week. It has radar detector, hid lights, underglow, i do not know what else. It also has 30k miles on it.

I have a 99 dodge ram 2500 gas. If you look at the link below that is my craigslist posting. I am going to provide a picture of his bike. Could you guys give me some stuff i should look at when he brings it over? I mean i really never drove a motorcycle but would like one so could you give me a head up please?

Okay, firstly you obviously know a bit about cars, so look on the car sale websites and compare the current sale prices to see if they are close to the same as the 03 R1.

Next when checking out his bike, look at how worn the tyres are to the edge of the tyre, if they're on the edge, it means he rides it hard. Feel the forks, if they're smooth with no oil leaks, all good. Feel the brakes for soft spots, so wheel the bike and slowly apply the brakes, to check if they have been warn. Then just look for general wear and tear and make sure the brake fluid, oil, etc is all a good level, if so, then you have got a perfect catch!
