I think he's lying about the condition of his tires because they are old and he said they have 126,992 meters of skid (or more if the meter went around) maybe he photoshopped them. Everything else in the description seems accurate though.

Think a lot of the listing was done jokingly - I mean from your quote alone

* Did you consider the fact that the bike has no meter??
* If a meter were fitted would it measure skid distance (considering the skid happens when the wheel is locked).
* The fact that he claims to have skidded almost 80 miles??
* Do you think he (or anyone for that matter) has ever measured 80 miles worth of skidding?

fact is that he is Australian (or at least in Australia) and as a rule they dont mind having a laugh with things like this

Did you read that his longest skid lasted for two weeks? I think it's believable.

Now to answer your questions.

- The meter is invisible.
- It's got Chuck Norris power since it's rad to the power of sick, so it measures anything.
- Two weeks sounds about right, I don't know why you question that one?
- Yes. Him, duh.[sm=lol.gif]

It also probably draws more attention to the ad too. Strangely enough, I think it somehow ends up raising the auction value.
