That 2011 KTM RC8 1190 R rather burns my sole but at last I'm too poor and too old !



SHIT! That 1995 Ducati 916/955 Street is beautiful and that 2005 Ducati 999S. Man there's some magnificent Mopeds in that auction.

Proxbid - Never heard of it - Could be deal or a scam ?

Prices appear too low for day left in the bidding !

It's a J Wood auction, which is legit. The Proxibid is a way to place a bid before the live auction starts.
I don't think this is a scam, and the prices will bloom as expected on the more desirable bikes in this collection.
There are a bunch of nice track day bikes there that may be had for a decent price, but you never know.

We really should have a better President, right?

Interesting to see what the different makes and models brought. Surprised the variation between same types like 500v4 Yam, and stuff like ZX7RR and early GSXR went cheap. The market dictates.
