a little bit of rust on the chain says nothing about how it was used, it does say it mightve sat outside for a week or two in the rain.

Looks like red grease to me, could be my monitor. Chain is limper than a 70 year old's dick though.

That is rust! He probably left it outside and didn't know your supposed to lube the chain.

really with all that's wrong with the world and were going to gripe about this? My guess is noobie didn't know to do anything with the chain. Heck I don't abuse my bike but my chain on the other hand get beat to hell. Besides look at those tires, fresh armor all?

GAH! Last time, my monitor sucks and it looked like red grease.

JPL: I'm bike shopping and keeping my options open ;) I may just have to squid out for the next bike.

Just needs to be cleaned and adjusted.

Looks like it wasn't ridden very hard, check out those chicken strips!

That bike is pristine actually. I'd buy it in a second if I were in the market for one.

I've always been told that red grease showing is bed because it means that the o-rings have failed. In 2200 miles, that seemed a bit absurd...

Alright, fine... I'm a man, I can take the flogging.

that says nothing about how many drag races or burnouts it has done!

my bosses son has an '07 gsx-r 600 and I was looking at it one day and my boss goes, "yeah, he needs a new tire". There are 2" chicken strips and the center is BALD. I don't think my boss, being a rider nonetheless, had a clue why the kid got so few miles out of it! :roflmao:

The center of the tire on this bike looks normal though.
