Ultimate 'awesome babe magnet'?

BRING ON THE LADIES: The seller of this motor-less dirt bike seems to think it will help one lucky guy find a "real live chick".


2012 BMW H4 - the lightest 1000cc track and sport bike there is should be in South Africa before the end of 2012. We tell you what its got and what it's likely to cost...

"Struggling with the ladies? Well, one Craigslist user reportedly from Beaumont, Texas in the US, appears to have the answer to all your troubles.

A dirt bike - albeit one without a motor - is a definite magnet for “fine ass bitches”, the seller noted on the online classified posting.


In something we definitely couldn't make up, the full text of the ad (including poor spelling and grammar) reads:

“Dating scene rough? Chicks love dirt bikes and this is one of the baddest ass bikes around. We're talking about a 1992 Kawasaki KX 500!! Yeah yeah, there's no motor. No big deal. You just put it in the back of your truck and tell the girls the engine is getting redone because you jumped 11 school busses with it. Done deal and you'll be motor boating in no time. Or you could sit on it, use the self timer function on your camera to take an Awesome Facebook profile pic....that'll get the bitches too!

you might ask yourself, "Why would this guy sell such an awesome babe magnet???" Well, I landed an actual real live chick (born a chick too) and don't need this monster anymore.

I'm pretty firm on the price of $15,900. That's a small price to pay to get fine ass bitches. But I am open to trades...but dont come at me with your Lego collection, star wars shit or ps 2.... chicks don't like that shit. Mainly interested in land, rope swings, samurai swords or any cool shit.”

Nothing screams I’m the manliest man ever like a motor-less dirt bike, so put away that Lego collection, hide your "star wars shit" under the bed and prepare yourself for the masses of “real live chicks” chasing you down.

What would you trade for this "awesome babe magnet"?
