Hi
 Right now I am at the military base getting ready for Afghanistan. This means that I am doing a special training and I am not allowed to get out of the unit. The bike is already at the shipping company in Topeka KS sealed and ready for the shipping. My presence won\'t be necessary because I prearranged the deal with Amazon. The deal includes free delivery and it will arrive at your address in 3 days. You will have 5 days to test it and inspect the bike prior to making any purchase and if by any reason you find something you don\'t like about it you can send it back at my expense.
If you are interested in knowing more info about how it works, i can ask Amazon to send you an email with more information on how to purchase it. Amazon will contact you shortly after they have the details with all the information that you need to complete this deal and you will also have proof that I am covered by them and a legitimate seller. If you would like to receive the email from Amazon with all the transaction information please reply with your full name and ph# and they will contact you right away.

Regards

You can understand my reluctance to jump at an offer that sounds too good to be true. With all of the Craigslist scammers out there, I need to protect myself. I would like to come see the bike and if it is as advertised, I\'ll purchase it cash from you. I live in , where are you located?

I am on night shift this week, finishing my shift Friday morning. I also have this weekend off. My phone number is below so feel free to call me and we can schedule a meeting.

I have a request for a couple of additional photos, please... One of the stamped VIN on the steering head of the bike and one of the left handgrip. Thank you...

Hello ,
My name is Maria, and I\'m emailing you regarding the BMW that I have for sale. The bike is in perfect condition, with no need for any additional repairs. Flawless condition, no scratches and no dents. It has never been involved in an accident. The mileage is 1,017, with an 1200 cc engine size. It has a clear title with no loans or liens on it. The price was reduced at $4,000 as I need to sell the bike before the 28th of July when I will be leaving with my platoon back to Afghanistan, so I don\'t want it getting old in my backyard.
Here some pics of my bike: http://photobucket.com/2007bmwgs
If you have any other questions, or need more info, please feel free to ask.

Thank you,
Maria
