Whenever I see something that is "gorges" with "no mechanical flaws" and a fifth of typical mileage for the year for private-party sale at 70% of the trade-in value that KBB lists for a good-condition model without the extras, I personally am inclined to think scam.

Maybe I'm too jaded but, as they say, if it seems too good to be true, it probably is.

It makes me wonder if you are going to get shot when you show up with the money in hand.

Another thing that makes me think scam is when a vehicle is well-traveled.

The bike was in Covington, LA when it sold on eBay using Buy It Now for $4900, at which point it strangely had exactly the same 7355 miles on it, using the exact same pictures and the exact same verbatim description, right down to the misspelling of gorgeous (Which made it really easy to google), except the original description went on to describe some things that were wrong with it.

The seller will probably be out of the country (Most likely in the military) and want you to wire money.

ETA: When I was shopping for my bike, I saw a few listings like that (They weren't even that good a deal), but was so concerned they might have been farming phone numbers or e-mail addresses I didn't even follow up to confirm my suspicions.
