Selling a used Harley on r.m.h

If you have any plans to sell your Harley on r.m.h, understand that the people who assemble in the VB&G aren't there to be your customers. Of the hundreds of people who read r.m.h, there are typically zero who are looking for a used bike at any given time. If someone needs a bike, they'll ask, and they'll be pointed to appropriate venues.

r.m.h isn't a classified ad venue, and if you regard it as such, you will no doubt be flamed. It's possible you and your bike will be insulted and ridiculed. If you insist on posting "good deals", you will be treated as if you are posting your own bike for sale. And it's not like it would do any good to post such ads, since people who are looking to purchase bikes are already checking out classified venues.

There are several things which will get you and your bike torched by the regulars. Here are some examples:

Low mileage
Use of the word "invested" anywhere in your ad
Any listing of a bike on an Ebay auction
Any bike that isn't yours
Pretty much any bike for any reason

If your ad contains any of those "features" it might be best to post your ad at:

Or any number of other online classified venues. It might be pointed out that it doesn't matter what you spent for your bike when new, nor does it matter how much you sunk into the bike. What matters is that r.m.h is not a classified ad or commercial venue, and the regular readers and posters regard all ads as unwelcome as door-to-door salesmen and telemarketers.
