Can anyone check out this bike located in the San Diego area?

2015 KTM 250 R Freeride for sale by private owner in San Marcos, CA:

https://www.cycletrader.com/listing/...0-R-5001426871

These are kind of rare, but it could be just what I'm looking for if it checks out. Local dealer won't budge at all on a new one ($8K) and I can't find a used one anywhere near me (Golden, Colorado). Anyone able to check it out for me?

PM me or Email Skimanbuzz@msn.com

I was looking at these and the Beta xtrainer (which is pretty much the same thing)

Unless you do only slow trials type endure riding or are pretty small you will quickly outride the suspension.

Just a though.

I can gladly check it out, but it won't be for a couple weeks? I work 6 days a week, and already am going out of town my day off next week more than likely. I could end up having a chance to do it before work next week, but I haven't got my schedule so I can't say for sure.

How do you like it? I rode with a guy who was on one a few months ago, I was going to ride it but ended up blowing my knee out in a crash before I got the chance. Want to see the cause of my limp for the past 2 months? Enjoy....

the back tire dropped into the huge rut I was trying to avoid, and hit a big rock in the rut, causing me to eject....

So I contacted the seller through Cycletrader and he got back saying it was sold. That's the fourth one now. Apparently, neither dealers or individuals ever bother to remove their listings after they've sold it.
