Default Looking at 2008 Buell Blast

I'm going to look at a 2008 Buell Blast that has low miles (3500) and looks very well cared for. Am I making a mistake? The guy is asking $1700 but he may come down some -- I don't ask that until I see a bike first.

I paid $1900 for mine and it had 600 miles on it. I was super lucky I think. I love it, but remember it is not a big bike. If your tall it will be too short, if your of average height you'll want the tall seat. It has plenty of power for what it is, a fun toy, but if your body type is extra helpings you won't go very fast.

Thanks.

I've decided not to purchase the Blast. I really don't need another bike now. I may regret this but . . . .
