Just throwing it out there

Alright so first off I'm not entirely sure if this thread is correctly placed.

I am in a bit a predicament, so I am just throwing this out there in the event that someone in the LA area is feeling extraordinarily willing to help.

I am currently in Lima, Peru and will not be back stateside for about 2-4 months.
I have been presented with the opportunity to make a good deal on a 1299 S, but I don't really wanna buy it without inspecting it or at least having a trustworthy third party inspect it for me.

What I am searching for is an individual that would be willing and able (for some sort of favor or a small fee in return) to give the bike, which is located in the La Habra, CA area, a quick look and let me know the state of it. It only has about 1,400 miles on it and the seller seems like a great guy, so it should be pretty straight forward, but even so I just don't feel good about committing 100% to purchasing a bike that hasn't been looked over by a third party.

It's probably too much to ask, but worst case I won't get a response.
Thank you all in advance.

Thanks Gnance, I know you would.
I've seen so many people selflessly help others on here so I figured I'd give it a shot.

How soon do you need this done? It's about 80 miles from me. Normally, I'd ride out there, but the only street legal bike I have at the moment is break-in mileage so I'd have to cage it.

Hey Terminator,

Yeah I know it's pretty far from you. Obviously if you have any other reason for being out in that area, that would be amazing. If not it's a lot to ask.
It's not that I need it done today though. I figure like sometime this week or the next.

What bike are you breaking in? :-)

Distance isn't too bad, but traffic in a cage can be an asskicker as you will find out in a few months when you move here. This week is tight, however I'll see what I can do next week.

Yeah I know it's horrible.
Let me know when you figure out if it'd be doable or not. Really appreciate you even considering it man.

Lollll. No way, you got a 1299 SL??

Amazing. Congrats!
We should definitely go tear up some canyons once I get settled.

Sure, I just told the guy that there's a chance I might be able to have someone come look at it next week so whenever you get your calendar figured out give me heads up. Thanks again brother.
