    Ok, since the thread was merged we have had to hunt for good and bad. I hope we can keep them separated this time. I will ask the mod to name change the other thread and see how it goes. Once again, if the mods want to roll this into the other one fine, but I miss the two threads.

    Also, What someone may think is a good deal or not may vary. I am no expert, but if I run across a bike that seems reasonable I will try to pass it on. I will not nor do I expect anyone else to fully research the seller or current KBB on a find, lets just use this thread as a pointer. If you happen to think its a good deal and feel like saying so, please do that, conversely if you feel the poster is way off base, share that as well, but as the rules go, please try to do it nicely.

    So here's a start, I would consider this, but I think I really want a DR650

    http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/dak/mcy/2134478039.html
    KLX400 same as DRZ400 700 Miles Like New! - $2900 (P.L)

    I think P.L. stands for Prior Lake

    Great bike, but not really a bargain looking at NADA (which is what's used for insurance claims, damhik)

    Jah, I too am disappointed they merged the threads. They are two clearly distinct ideas- one thread is for bargain hunters and one is a joke thread. For some reason I thought the mod that merged them was trying to make amends. Feh, for whatever reason it didn't happen.

    I too hope that the two threads can be separated. This helps a bunch!

    Pretty sure the Mods were cool with another thread; I was going to start one several times, but never came up with a deal to start a new thread with whenever I was in Central and thinking about it.

    Illinois- land of straight, flat, boring roads.
    IL requires headlight, taillight, stoplight, mirror, horn, and I believe also a speedometer.

    That'd be street legal on the title only (OK to plate), not to actually ride on the street as is- you'd get pulled right over.
