I have recruited another guy here in Elliot Lake was wants to get a KTM 200 or 250. We have been looking on some offroad sites and kijiji for him to get a used one. Most of the ones he's interested in have been in southern Ontario. We are finding the guys down there don't want to sell to anyone far away. He was even willing to pay their asking price and only asked that maybe they could meet him part way to save on the distance. No one seems to want to sell their bikes to him. Has anyone else ever had this? How do you guys buy used bikes up here?
Dale welcome back i hope your back in Timmins with your new ride. Dan and i will book an appointment to see this new weapon you have (KTM). Dont want to steal your thread Jim, but i will keep an eye out for a Ktm for your friend. Maybe for now he should consider Dales 200 Suzuki for starts. My buddy Dan is slowly turning orange.LOL

Hey Dubbs, is he open to buying by pictures and shipping it up there? Its not sight unseen but not as good as seeing it in person. What about buying used from a dealer like Mission or Apex or ? and having it shipped? Dealer might be better than private. Depends on budget... Maybe a like-minded rider from the south could have a look at something he finds?
I know a shipper that runs through the north to Winnipeg.
I have been looking at both of those dealers as they both post on ODSC and Kijiji all the time. Still nothing. He has some connections down south that would go and pick it up for him until he can get down there. I also told him about Scott being able to ship but nothing from him yet either.
