    I've been able to keep myself and two employees going. That's down from four employees. Land Surveying. So one guy is working from home and just does drafting. The other guy can work solo and send me data from his home and I am both office and field, but all by myself.
    One guy I had to lay off until....? I don't know what. The other guy has been with me the longest. He's super smart, but more freaked out about the economic fall out....and that people are going to shoot him for being out and about...a little dramatic, but I can't fault him for staying safe.
    I spoke to a couple other surveyors in the SW Colorado area and feel that we are within the construction industry enough to keep plugging along. Not like we are working in Walmart or a hospital....fresh air!

    looks like another month of my business shut down. I have low overhead, but the zero in sales and income is pretty harsh.

    It's a repost, I believe from the beginning of March. Must not have gotten to many inquiries and decided to try again. I do like the bike just not sure a 4000.00

    That does seem like a lot. I’d sell my 650 Cagiva Elefant (that Tamanaco is often called a “Baby Elefant”) for half that price. For $4000 you can usually get a decent 900 Elefant.

    RD400D, While it is rare, Hagerty only has it valued at $6K and they are usually a little high. It is worth what you want to pay for it. KBB is $5490.

    So YES it is high by quite a few thousand but is there another one you can buy right now ? :lol3

    I've lusted for a Daytona my entire semi-adult life and that sucker is WAY over priced. However, the asking prices for these just keeps sky rocketing compared to a lot of vintage bikes. That said, if you got the money and it makes you happy, go for it. A couple years ago, a buddy was dying of brain cancer and one of the last things he did was buy a 400 Daytona. I guess it made him feel a little better.

    It's a RD400F (1979), not a D which is '77MY. Overpriced and to put it frankly, an RD sucks out here, the altitude and long stretches of highway don't lend themselves to a 2 stroke. I was pretty serious into RDs in years past and they were great for around town, tight curvy roads, and club racing but not the distances and altitude changes out here. Big fun in the city if your license can stand tooling around on an expansion chambered 2 stroke :D

    2300mi and it needs a full rebuild and 2 tranny gears, something isn't adding up.

    I think in his heart @beernutt already knows this. We sort of shared an RD350 (that you gave me good advice for) and though it was pretty and neat, it wasn’t really that fun to ride. We both remembered all of the RD lore, fire breathers that would flip you onto your back if you didn’t show respect....and found the reality a bit underwhelming.

    Esp @ 5K', I did the same thing, bought one out here, it was cool but not much fun to ride and I was always watching the fuel range like I was on a dirtbike ride in the middle of nowhere. In the Rockies you might be jetted fine for part of the ride but depending on the alt you could be pretty far off later in the same day. We had some fast ones back in the day, relatively speaking.

    Too much money for that RD, there are way better deals out there, $6K could get you a really nice RZ350 which is a superior bike. That being said, RD400s are cool, had a few of them, the 400F was the pinnacle, revised porting, better ground clearance (foot pegs bolt to side of frame, not underneath onto the motor), electronic ignition. Should power wheelie in 2nd, look for smoke on LHS, means the mains are going out.

    Some of these people are pricing bikes like everything is normal and there isn't record unemployment going on. Hate to break the news but there aren't many people who can say for sure they'll have a job in 6mos. If you want to sell something at this time it better be very desirable or priced appropriately to the current situation, $6K for a 5yo KLR isn't realistic.
