    And them proceed to say it has only been ridden 5 times and for less than two months? Does riding something make it brand new? :think:

    I don't get it.

    I think you're getting "brand new" and "brand spanking new" mixed up. You need a good dictionary. :thumb:

    I think I do. How the **** do you say something is brand new, never ridden and then say you have only rode it 5 times? :mumble: http://www.ridemonkey.com/forums/showthread.php?t=130841
    It seems like I am noticing it more and more lately. ****, I have only ridden my Sunday about 20 times and for only 3.5 months. Can I still call it new if I sell it?

    Bike shops sell bikes as brand new even though it's *sure* that people have ridden it around..........

    But it sounds like this is a scam. :D
