Thought someone might say that, lol, maybe even for real.

Lost count how many times I've done that, think I would learn. Have also snagged a lot of good deals though.

This might have cured the horrible leg:butt:seat: pain ratios.

Yeah, a bit of stretch would be nice. I'm mulling over some extensions for my highway pegs so they're further forward. Haven't checked to see if I'd be able to bump them forward and still be able to avoid giving myself a high speed pedicure.

Wouldn't mind a heel-toe shifter either.

Apparently I've become a slow learner.

Just missed a kaw 900 seat for $12.

arrrrgh

Wish my phone could do something about this!

If that keeps happening to you, then you should put in a bid early. eBay lets you put in a max amount you are willing to pay, but it doesn't go up that high unless someone else out bids you.

In the past, I know that I will forget to come back in time to bid on the item, so I put in the max amount Iím willing to pay. Set it and forget it. Most of the time it doesnít even go up that high unless itís a highly sought after item.

Don't take my word for it. I'm just a foolish newbie.
When in doubt, just know that I am only joking around.

True, I've used proxy bids a lot. Guess I was playing mind games, trying not to show interest since there was one bid on the FWDs, two bids on the seat.

Yep, I need to stick with proxy!

Hard to believe those new FWDs going for 99 cents where they used to list as high as $700. That's about the 3rd or 4th set from that seller in the past 8 months that started at that price. Wonder how many more they have? Hmm, may be time for an email.

This is the best use of eBay. When people bid each-other up they're just throwing away money.

Never bid past the first bid until the last 2 minutes, or it's a waste of money in my eyes.

You didn't miss them for 99 cents. Those sellers know what they are doing with no reserves and high bin's. They have a shill bidding account that puts a proxy in at say $250 so the buy it now looks huge, the bid price is a buck. if you keep trying to bid you don't become high bidder until you beat their fake bid. It stays at a buck until someone else bids, but the proxy bid is $250 or $300 at least.

Ordinarily, I might think that, but these items from this seller have gone cheap every time they've been listed. Far less than $200 even.

Shill bidding exists, but I've also gotten those 99 cent deals by being the lone bidder. I think this one is legit.

Could have already snagged some for cheap, but have been on the fence as to whether it would help, or make things worse. Finally decided to try them and resell if I can't use them. Some I've posted in the ebay thread, some I've just not bothered. At least one member here got a set via one of those posts.

That ebay thread is pretty much irrelevant now since they keep deleting the newest posts from it. Makes no sense.
