in the spring everyone knows it's the start of the next season and people are buying. people price high and think if this guy isn't paying that price the next guy will. yes there is more out there to buy but most all want that prime price from an eager buyer.

i sell bikes in the spring/early summer and buy in the fall/winter.

Fully Agee! Just bought a 2010 R1200GS Adv in early Dec for an unbelievable price - winter is the BEST time to buy from a pricing perspective!
