It's not a simple business buying a used bike (or car for that matter) and there are numerous factors to take into account, one of the most important being where the bike is registered.
I've looked at five or six bikes already - two at the dealer around the corner and a few private sales. If it's registered in BA province, the transfer is cheaper than the Capital which can be more than double the cost. Then you have the issue of the bike being in Pilar for instance, but registered in Capital.
Another is humans. or should I say Argentines. One that I liked (2021, 7000km) is owned by someone who lives in Olivos, so I arranged to meet him and the bike on Sunday at 11.00 am. At 10.30 he changed the time to 11.45, so I arrived at 11.40 because I'm always punctual. He sent a message at 11.44 saying that he was just leaving his house and so he turned up at 12.20.
I looked at the bike, I liked it we chatted and I offered him US$200 less than he was asking which is pretty standard practice, at which he said he would have to think about it. He would have to think about two hundred dollars, seriously?
He said he'd get back to me today. he didn't, so I messaged him at 11.00 asking if he'd had time to think. He said he'd get back to me at midday, which he hasn't as yet.
During this time I've been back to the dealer and resurrected an offer I made on one that I liked, US$100 less than the asking price.
I'll keep ya'll posted...
