Lol for the most part very true. The 1997 Honda TRX300 2wd I just bought was purchased off of a little old lady who owns a horse farm. Her husband, who passed away 4-5years ago bought the 4 Wheeler brand new. It is still all original(tires, all warning stickers, etc) except for the added gun rack, hand shifter(which I removed immediately) and trailer receiver with insert. I have to replace the battery and I did have to rebuild the carburetor since they didn't drain the gas. It wouldn't start when I looked at it, but I took a chance and bought it anyway. I never do that, but I took a chance seeing as how the engine oil, spark plug, rear end oil all looked and smelled fine. I'll probably never do that again though because I could've been burned.
