Well, the local 8-9% sales tax on top of the new price (if they won't come down on new ones) is also a factor, but, yes, you definitely want to see the bike before going further. After all you can "ask" anything but it is what it sells for that is of interest. Owner may not realize the instant 30% depreciation upon the OTD price.
I still don't understand why people buy bikes before taking the MSF basic course. Usually that will scare off the truly unfit riders.
