Every so often I check Craig’s List for bikes. My thought is, I’ll sell the CBR250R and find a nice Rebel 250. Well, when I checked a few days ago, this Yamaha Seca Turbo caught my eye. It’s not something I’d normally be interested in, but after reading the ad, I just had to inquire.
Well, I must have been meant to have this bike! You see, I’m the guy who is always a day late and a dollar short when it come to finding a great deal. Eugene, the fellow who had the bike for sale, had listed this bike on several sites in early November trying to sell it. How it just sat there waiting for me to inquire is a mystery to me, for just after I got in touch with Eugene, he had several others want to purchase the bike.
Eugene is an upstanding gentleman, and since I was first to inquire, I had first dibs on the bike! Considering the bike looked just as great in person as it did in the photos, along with the fact that Eugene had many extras included with the bike, making the purchase was a no-brainer.
The bike runs great out on the road, but is hard to start and does not idle properly. Just needs a bit of TLC and it should run & ride as great as it looks!
