65hp at the crank, thats the same as the soon to be released 690 Duke R. Truly impressive for a 1996

Stephanie paid more than that for her 1998!!! I guess that's the cost of buying when it is still warm out...
Made an offer and I'm off to look at that thing with cash in hand in the morning-people are practically giving bikes away these days...

If I had the cash, I would have bought it and sat on it. In 6 months, you would sell that bike for $2k the same day you listed it for sale.

Maybe. Buying things to resell isn't worth the effort IMO. You need to title it which is $$$. Your risk tolerance may dictate that you insure it as it won't be covered under your homeowners. It's sitting in your garage and it's not selling (because selling bikes isn't an exact science) and pretty soon it's become an albatross. To each his own I guess.

Back in the spring of '07 I would buy fire sale bikes and flip them the next week for $1,000 profit. Would advertise early on a Saturday and have it gone by noon. Didn't license in my name. As long as you have title another bill of sale be just fine. Those days are long gone.

I don't think I can go wrong in buying that XT for $1400.00-I want to ride it for at least a year and even if I sell it for a little less than I paid for it who cares-cannot imagine that bike will be worth much less than $1400.00 to someone in a year...

You can still do that. If you aren't using whatever it is, there's no need to title it in your name in OR, unless you are worried about it getting stolen. Just don't have the first seller date the title, and there are no extra fees for you or the next owner.

You can even sign and date the title if you want, and give it to the next owner with a bill of sale from you. Totally legit. My Toyota was handled that way, DMV had no problems with it.

I'm not saying it is the safest way to go about things if you are worried about something getting stolen. Beginner models\starter bikes are always easy to sell. I've been flipping bikes for about 5 years, and I've never had a small displacement bike I wasn't able to sell within 4 days.

True 'dat. Wuz just saying that flipping bikes is much harder now with the economy - less available buyers. Poorly worded at best.

That XT is a good buy. Hard to say it would depreciate much. Dual sport bikes are always in demand.
