    Spend less time worrying about what irks you and more time riding and expanding your knowledge surrounding motorcycles, and you won't have time to worry about pet peeves. 😎

    My current worst motorcycling pet peeve:
    Advertisements for used Honda Gold Wings that say "adult owned". (same for RV's, expensive boats, etc...)

    Speaking of advertisements, my peeve is people who list the condition of the bike for sale as “mint”, then go on to list the problems that it has. Now wait a minute. Mint means perfect, so if it’s perfect, how does it have flaws, too?

    mint condition

    noun


    Definition of mint condition



    : perfect condition : a state of being like new He kept the car in mint condition.

    To add to that, false information is equally annoying. Like this NC for sale in TN. 2013 NC700X manual trans with ABS....oddly, it looks like it had an ABS sticker on the front fender, but doesn't have ABS ring.

    Haha! I fully expected this to be a dealer ad, where I would expect lies like that, but this private seller probably doesn’t have a clue. And, it’s possible the buyer won’t have a clue, either. In the end, everyone’s happy!

    I'd write and tell the seller that he could be in trouble for false advertising. There has never been a non-DCT with ABS here in the states, right?

    I buy model trains on ebay and correct sellers all the time. Most appreciate and thank me for the info and change their ad, those who don't make my "untrustworthy sellers" list.

    I wonder the history behind the sticker on the front fender? I mean it really does appear to say ABS, but who would put a sticker like that on it? Or maybe the fender was replaced with one from a DCT model.

    Yep, it probably had the fender replaced, which leads to more questions for the seller, for sure. Or you can order a Combined ABS sticker, per the number below:

    61110-MFM-900ZB
    MARK, COMBINED ABS (TYPE2)

    MSRP: $5.40
    Dealer Price: $4.32
