    Ebay Ducati Diavel - what could go wrong?

    It was late and i already had a few drinks, made a bid of $8989.89 and I won?

    Always wanted a red bike.

    spoke to the guy on the phone, seems decent enough. Flicked him the cash and bike is getting picked up this weekend by Joe Khoury some crazy harley drag racing guy.

    comes with a venture rack and an error "EXVL" it's located 900km from me, I asked the guy if I should ride it home and he said I might die if it rains, has diablo rosso 2 tyres.

    I've already had it transferred into my name as I was in Sydney for work. RMS office in city opens at 7am fucking so good.

    will get to melbourne on tuesday,hope it's going to be ok.

      That's nuts, I didn't think people actually bought vehicles on eBay. Did he not have success selling it on Gumtree or the like?

        i bought a magna with 6mths reg for $300 once on ebay, after 3 months sold it for $300, next guy wrote it off (not at fault) original owner was located and pretty pisses as it changed hands 5-6 times, but was happy to split the $3k payout with the current owner

        poor bastard bust have had an old address with vic roads, cos that bitch racked up some tolls and traffic fines i hear LOL

        anyway

          I was expecting it to go crazy but the auction ended on a Thursday morning at 10ish am. The seller has a few bikes and wasn't in the mood to have his time wasted.

          Have to see how it goes, I did a pssr check came through clean. The motor might grenade on me first day, who knows?

          I've never bought a car on eBay, you can't pay via eBay is like a car sales thing $60 fee up to a certain value.

            bike came last night, the guy that delivered the bike is Joe Khoury some dude that drags Harleys. big balls.

            He told me he spoke to the PO and the guy doesn't even know why he bought the bike, he's going through a divorce so getting rid of everything for cash.

            it's in really good nick, I am very happy with it apart from an error that says EXVL, did some google, it's an exhaust valve to control noise. I will fuck that off anyways, no biggie.

            took it for a ride to fill up petrol, looks huge, but it's shorter than the sportster and the handlebar is lower, it feels like it weights a lot less as well.

            it's so fast, there's a low rev/speed vibration, under 2500rpm? but when you're giving it some beans it's so smooth. It's brutal fast, I twisted the throttle and literally it's 100km/h+.

            couple of pics. I've seen black ones, and thought i would want a black with the LED update headlight. but the red is really nice and i don't mind the big round headlight.

                        Fuck me, the anodised and plished fucking tassels and geegaws you see on Diavels... not as bad as Harleys or GSXRs I guess though.
                        "Where can we get hold of a Vincent Black Shadow?" "Whats that?" "A fantastic bike," I said. "The new model is something like two thousand cubic inches, developing two hundred brake-horsepower at four thousand revolutions per minute on a magnesium frame with two styrofoam seats and a total curb weight of exactly two hundred pounds."

                          Anyway - that looks like good buying!
                          Do something about the exhaust and the scabby looking shield on it asap!

                            yep need to get rid of the huge exhaust, folks are getting a termi can from an s1000rr and getting a shop to knock up a link pipe. that's like $600 bucks all up, no one selling 2nd hand termis for these, fuck paying 2k for one.
