look at a bike in tampa for me?

hello all,

i'm interested in a 1098S in the tampa bay area. i'd like to go look at it but i'm 3000kms away in moncton nb canada.

if this deal happened i'd fly down and ride back up.

so, anyone interested in checking this bike out for me? the vendor actually suggested me getting someone to look at it.

If I'd caught this earlier I'd be glad to.
Unfortunately I've been working out of town so often I just saw it.
Did the deal fall through or are you still interested?
Unfortunately I'm out of town again this weekend for two weeks.
Let me know if you're still interested and I'll contact you when I get back.

i think the bike is still available but for a couple reasons i'm leaning away from it now.
if i was buying and wanted someone to check it out for me - you'd definitely be the person i'd want doing the checking!

I'm in Tampa also. It sounds like it's at a dealership.(?) Not too many ducs selling right now down here. I have seen the same used bikes at dealerships for months now, so don't assume this thing has problems just yet. There are only 2 dealerships that have ducs around Tampa so I'll look for it online right now. I know the owner of one of them and the other one has a pretty good reputation.

OK, I just found it. Ya that dealership has a good reputation as far as I know but then again it was the only place you could get a Ducati around here forever. If I have time I can go look at it for you next weekend. Even if you get others to go too it's good to have more than one set of eyes go over it. They will do test rides at that dealership but I can't afford that thing so that's a no can do from me.lol

1098 is possible.
s is out of my price range.
r is way out of my price range!
