Thumbs up

I called up the number above & some guy called Fayaz answered the call, it seems somebody is playing a prank on him. He isn't aware of any such thing & is really troubled by people enquiring about the bikes. He said kindly delete the number if possible. He seems to have no clue about it. Had a funny conversation with him. It's just a PRANK.

CHEERS,
G D

Now this is hitting below the belt. Poor chap.

Can someone report it to the Bikez mods so this post can be flagged as false/dubious?

A five letter word, is your answer my friend... starts with 'P' ends with and 'K', middle letter is 'A', which is surrounded with 'R' and 'N'.

Cheers.

I am quite sure its a scam. And the guy posting all this crap on such a sensative issue should be banned. No new news to share just hearing different totally contradicting stories from different sources. So don't know what to believe really, some of the pals really seemed worried. Funny thing is can afford a bike at the prices quoted now a days. But would I want one now :d

I have since a few years kept a check on Bikesbiz, and very often the contact numbers and motorcycle details have turned out to be genuine.

I would say just ignore them totally. If you respond the joker will know that the address is genuine - only attract more spam. Also, phishing attacks are never far. ditto for phone nos. unless you call from a PCO or something.

This has been discussed before, read through the thread and the SBK thread posted by RTech.

Havent heard anything in quite sometime and can see people take out their bikes again, is this for good?

the bikes which are on the streets are cleared full paid duty bikes, if you get caught by the dri now they will question you why u didnt surrender your bike & then you will be in trouble If you wanna ride a grey bike you got to have balls of steel
