OK, this is offtopic and is getting close to Jo Momma mode, but I see a lot more motorcycles and scooters on the road, and in the parking lots at work. There are at least double the amount of bikes at work compared to 2 years ago. Some are nice (a 1999 Nighthawk 750 that looked absolutely brand new), and there are many older bikes that suddenly came out of the woodwork. Maybe they are old riders that are taking up riding again, maybe some are newer riders.

I don't think greed is pushing up prices. Demand is definitely increasing for smaller bikes, like Ninja 250's. Blue book values on old bikes are unrealistic, and don't reflect what a well-maintained bike is worth (emphasis on well-maintained - a neglected junker is not worth much). There have always been ads where owners expect too much for old bikes, but there are so many bikes on Craigslist that I would doubt that greed in itself is pushing up the price. There are too many to choose from, most buyers bypass the outrageously priced bikes. If gas goes over $5 a gallon, maybe the supply of bikes will disappear and prices will rise some more.

I helped a friend buy a good entry level bike last year. No problem. Trying to do same for another friend this year. The entry price for a decent street bike seems to be 50% higher than it was last year.

Almost new (250 miles) front and rear street legal wheels/tires/lightweight Supersprox sprocket. The rims are black (look very cool) German made KTM BEHR which Elite Motersports says are as good or better than Excel rims.

Front: Pirelli Corsa MT 60 R 120/70 R17

Rear: Pirelli Corsa MT 60 RS 160/60 R17 M/C 69 V
(these are as wide as can fit on a KTM)

Probably kickstart instead of estart, but a nice deal for somebody anyway!

GREAT real dirt bike for a big-pig type dualsporter...
