A large part of it is the local dealer, but I know one of the HD dealers nearish me won't even try to resell any bike they get if it has over 20k miles and consequently offer much lower than BB or NADA trade-in values for the area. So, putting another 20k probably wouldn't make $1 difference if you were to try trading someplace like that - personally I'd go with putting another 20k on it too.
