    No affiliation to the seller, but this ad just popped up on local Craigslist...

    Price seems an little optimistic to me, for a self-proclaimed "rider".

    I'm not in the market for something this expensive with no fairing, so not criticizing the bike...

    Yeah, that's pretty darn high. His wife prolly told him to sell it. Now he can honestly say no one called!

    Oh yeah, I forgot about that tactic!

    Not being married, I haven't had to use that one (yet).

    He's just optimistic that he's never gonna sell it at that price. I hadn't heard about the fair market value x 2 pricing strategy.
