bro,
you hit it right on the head. new(er) bike, comes time to sell=loss. its still in the throes of depreciation. used bike, bought smart, especially a vintage/special interest type=profit as long as its nice and kept nice. always a market. you should see some of the bikes i've bought from $1501-$2000!

I'd love to have a ZX11D for $1500!!!!

Problem around here is finding them not all modded out with extended swingarms and Muzzy exhaust and all that!!!

notorious for spinning the #3 rod bearing due to oil cavitation. repeated wheelies or hard acceleration is the culprit. there is an oil pan mod that can prevent this.

Yeah, same basic issue with the Concours and the ZRX.

Second entry into this thread. First was an 04 Ninja 250 for 1300. Well I beat that one by scoring this last night. 04 Ninja 500 for $850! Has one tiny bit of rash (no cracking) on the fairing and needs brake pads and a few misc items but it runs great!

$350.00 83 honda v65 magna, 11,000 miles. non runner due to dead battery and gummed carbs (can't expect perfection for that kind of money). its about twenty degrees out here today so you can only do so much cleaning it with windex and a little compond polishing love.
