I'll try to get this re-scanned so that I can get a larger image posted.
And this is me going on my first motorcycle ride

The following photos of my bike are thumbnails and will increase in size when you click on them. These are the photos that the seller sent to me prior to the purchase. The seller informed me that the bike had been dropped on the left side and that there was a hole in the mirror housing. That is clear in the photo below. What the seller did not disclose is that the bike had also been dropped on the right side too. Damage noted so far are: bent clutch lever, bent brake lever, hole in left mirror housing, broken left foot peg bracket, broken right foot peg. There are some scuffs on the edge of the fairing and the saddle bags but nothing to really be concerned about.
Hole in mirror housing from 0 mph drop
The bike was originally purchased in September of 2001 and during the three years and five months that he owned it the previous owner managed to put 5484 miles on it. The bike actually had 5503 miles on it when it came off the trailer at my house (03/11/05), and two months and two weeks later (05/28/05) the odometer rolled over to 11006 miles; exactly double what it had when it arrived.
At purchase May 28, 2005
The bike shows up (FINALLY) on 03/11/05, brought to me by Haul Bikes (Daily Direct)
It is one of many on this load
As it reaches the light of day (darkness actually since it got here about 7 pm). The bike had 5503 miles on it as of the day of delivery. I put 163 miles on it the next day. 80 degree temps, but 30 kts of wind. Not fun dealing with the crosswinds.
Here's what it looked like after its first bath...
