And this is why I love this site.


I call those "Garage Bikers." Wink

You see the ads often...."20 yr old Bike for sale, only 10,000 miles....always garaged..." Wink


yeah those are the ones that say "never seen rain" right?

Yeah, its a little high. KBB is $7815, trade in $5700. Another classic case of someone attempting to regain every single penny back out of their item. And no pics with a spiel of "gotta see this" is kinda redundant.

I would offer $6500, and that is only if they have all the records of maintenance with it and a clean title. Unless they have added on a LOT of extras, then negotiations could commence. But cover 35, trickle charger 25 and alarm 95 (which is what I would buy and can get them for ) do not make it anything special at least to me.

Lastly, any vehicle run that little, you are going to be looking for dried seals, dry rot, cracked rubber and clogged jets at the least.

Around this area, everyone knows garage kept is not always the best either. Better to say "Baked daily in an 110 degree oven with dead air flow"

Very Happy
