To Pa's last statement, True, but .... one reason I quit doing business with the RUBBIE infested stealerships (unless it's an absolutely dealer only item, and they handle very little of what fits my bikes any more) is their attitude of (GASP!) unchecked capitalism, or as some might say, price gouging. BITD (back in the day) the stealerships weren't real hip to us long-haired scooter trash but they took our money and allowed us to hang out there. Posting bikes (and parts) on the bulletin boards "For Sale", was usually an anticipated financial move made to gather funds towards purchasing another new or used bike or part. It was good for business. Now, the Bastards will tear doen anything "For Sale" and unpolitely escort you out the door. F#@* 'em. I stear my business to shops that cater to (read that as appreciate) my being a customer for something other than being a walking-wallet. Are they shops listed on the NYSE, no, but they are some place to go spend an afternoon bench racing and brainstorming, which usually leads to the sale of something.
Anyway, to the point of this topic, I agree in part with Plumber. I'ld like to see a lift on the ban but only as far as it dosen't get out of hand. Like Curt, I too might be interested in buying something I don't need at the moment if the price is right, but I'm not going to email, or PM (don't even know how to do that) everybody that lists anything.
At one point in time, on this board, certian things were left to the descretion of the moderator(s). This might be one of those areas. If anybody gets too carried away they can always be nudged back into line like a good little ant or else stepped on and lose thier posting priviledges. Personally, I believe free trade is good for business and S&S might sell me some parts IF i got something to use them in (or on).
