I don't know if I have enough faith in humanity to buy a motorcycle from someone 8,000 miles away... or 80 miles away, sight unseen.

I wish I could help you with the rotor resurfacing. Next time buy a bike from someone in Virginia :-) and I'll be able to lend a hand
I am wrong as often as I am right concerning what is wrong with someone else' motorcycle without having seen the machine in person. Guessing with limited information, as to the source of the trouble, is sketchy at best.

of all 19 bikes that I have imported only once been caught by a bandit, bought his cb 900 at full price when the bike arrived we had to spend another 2500$ to bring it up to good standard!!
this guy sounds honest on the phone the bike looks quite good on the bay , hoping for the best

It is good to read that you have been fortunate more often than not.
