How long was it up for sale? an hour? What a deal.
Now the problem is you're going to like it a lot more for road riding than your SM.

Otherwise, you had to pay based on NADA (and stand in an extra line just to have them look it up in the book...don't ask me how I know..).
In WA state they try to get you for what their computer thinks it's worth - which is usually 20-25% higher than the dealer KBB price.

However, you can end up paying tax on what you actually paid if the buyer and seller fill out this: http://dor.wa.gov/Docs/Forms/Misc/De...dVehSold_E.pdf

Since most people don't know about that though they end up getting bent over a chair by the Dept. of Licensing.

1985 Honda Shadow VT700C. Bought for $1000. Put right around 14,000 miles on it. Collapsed 2 lifters in the rear cylinder. Sold it 3 weeks ago for $600 when I was asking $500.

When I got it:


Right before it left me:


Took $300 of my "winnings" and a couple days later bought a 1969 Honda CL450 K2 with 1863 original miles on it.





And now it looks like this minus the forks and bars (they were removed right after this picture):

I think it might have been listed for 30 minutes. With deals like this its really a matter of being the first person with the money.

The DR is a far better road bike then the DRZ so far as I can tell. But I really just use the DRZ for mountain roads these days, it's natural habitat

Got my friggin' awesome CX500 for 1200 bucks. My friggin' horrid CB500 for 800 bucks.

As for the title conversation above, I've only payed taxes on one of the vehicles I've ever owned in my life. It started with the first one that convinced ME that she would "save me a bit of cash" and just write "even trade" in the price line. I was mortified. It was a little old lady selling me my first car, a '92 Buick LeSabre. She told me to say I traded it for a "lawn tractor." Went to the tag agency, they scrutinizingly asked what I traded it for, and I responded accordingly. No further questions, got the title, an got out of there.

Since then, I've requested it of every seller for any vehicle I've bought, and only one refused to which I replied with a "meh." Never did I get questioned at the tag agency again when they saw Even Trade.

Don't try "Gift" or "$1" it's way too obvious! Lol. Also, always say it was something that doesn't have a title to it; otherwise they'll be looking up the paperwork for what you supposedly traded the seller. Hence the "lawn tractor."

82 xs400j!

Bought this 82 XS400J with about 29k on the clock. Runs amazing, everythings in decent enough shape, no missing random parts and well maintained. And it was 1400$ for bike + plates + year of insurance. Woohoo!!

Put almost 200 miles on it since I bought it a few days ago.

1980 CB750K. Needs fork seals, and a little TLC, but not too bad for $500.
