I've got a mountain bike that cost me more than a couple of the motorcycles I've owned. No regrets, as I've gotten many, many hours of fun out of that bicycle. I figure that at the end of the day, I'm not paying for a bicycle or motorcycle, but rather for the experiences that the bike or moto allows me to have. If you didn't have the Dakar up for sale, would you consider paying cash for that bicycle? Or would you shop around for something less expensive?
