You must have some reserves of patience.

It would have been the requests for dozens of photos and videos that would have irked me. that would have been a CLUE that a potential buyer was a timewaster. after all, the more time a buyer makes you invest, the higher the risk that your time will be wasted.
thats why i would be unwilling to provide videos etc. i prefer a buyer to waste his own time by coming to view the bike first.

i'm confused by the method of payment also, you mentioned that you transferred the money but you turned up with a trailer for collection; why not just pay cash on collection.

Salutations boys and girls,

Was without internet over the weekend and then busy all week until now.

Just wanted to address some of the sentiment on here before I take my leave.

1. I would have no issue selling the bike to muzz_mm if he changed his mind and contacted me to reorganize a pick up, however; I had a queue of lads looking to take it and the bike was collected the following morning before most people were out of bed . Chap took one look and bundled it into the back of a van. I've spoken to him since and he's delighted with it, so that's the main thing.

With regards to the Time-waster thing, I can see your points but I have no issue in sending on whatever as I don't want people to spend hours driving to see it and not be interested (was personally stung several times, driving hours to see stuff that was barely even suitable fro breaking ... and I was none to please to have spent money on getting a transporter up there for nothing)
Also, if they see loads of pics and videos and decide to come for a look I reckon they will be ready to buy since they already know the state of play.
Most importantly, don't want to have to arrange to meet that many prospective buyers unless I know they are serious; sms or Grindr is much easier than dealing with the general public face to face .

The minutia of what happened with regards to payment etc is irrelevant at this stage anyway, so I have nothing to add to there.

Thanks all for the comments and advice. Hope ye all have a good weekend !

Hey man, don't take it so bad.

You can't be blamed for following your gut instinct and it can hardly be described as a 'mistake' since there are literally no tangible negative consequences.

You didn't lose a substantial amount of money, you didn't buy a dud, nobody was injured.
The only thing is you spent about 5 hours of your day, but even that is not so bad since you got to take a nice spin and see the area around Waterford City :)
Can't beat the Sunny Southeast

There will nearly always be another bike to go see, unless it's something super rare or exotic ... which a Hornet is neither
Just don't blindly jump at the next one you see for fear of missing out a second time !

You have my number, if you are down in my neck of the woods looking at another example, feel free to message me and I can go look at it with you if you like. I have seen a few around over the years, so if it is what your heart is set on, keep an eye out and one will come up.

Best of luck and take it easy butty

Untill the butty bit it sounded very nice


Seller seems very sound in fairness, nice to see some decent threads around here for a change

Butty is just a colloquial term along the lines of 'mate' or 'pal'

Certainly not a derogatory or inflammatory term, at least in this part of the world :)

Bollocks! maybe the buyer was 100% legit and wanted better pictures than the dung deal or adverts shite offers them.
Remind me never to buy a bike from you!

I'd say your reference to 'Butty' was more of a nod to D'Unbelievables charachter Butty Brennan.
Fair play to ya. You maintained your dignity here in spite of the slaggin'
