    I think if you look around more you can find one 10 years newer for the same price.

    I just paid $4k for a 2008 Tiger 1050 with hard bags and full bling. So I would say that is high.

    Thanks everyone. I thought the same. I’ll wait and see if his price drops.

    Nice bike, but price is definitely high.

    My friend David bought a '98 Steamer at the beginning of the year for $2000. Mileage is higher and paint on the tank was bubbling due to ethanol, but it's in great mechanical shape.

    Here's what it looked like when he bought it:

    In the meantime he's ridden it on a long trip with me and done a bunch of work to it. Here's what it looks like now (pic taken two days ago on the Bayley Hazen Military Road in Vermont):
