PO's without them, we wouldn't have second hand "bargains"!?
I was always the nice honest guy when selling and took everyone at their word when buying. My perception changed when I became a bike trader for a few years. I now understand that when buying you must assume everything they say is "embellished" and only believe your eyes not your ears. When you trade Bikes the PO problem becomes magnified, that's why you get such a poor trade in on bikes as the trader has to fix things. Get your bike fixed and enjoy it, it would have cost more from a dealer so don't sweat the small stuff. My own Goldie imported from USA to UK, has issues but I fell for the bling, almost new look. Have you fixed yours?
my centre of gravity is the same as the bike, low and well balanced with all the weight at the bottom
