    So true "RideFreak" but anyone can ask anything they want. It is up to a true buyer to decide what they are willing to pay. The market should be great for used bikes even though it is spring and normally the market is good for bikes.

    The auto manufacturers are starting to report Q1 sales and they're dismal and that includes a month of sales prior to the current situation.

    So you're saying that my strategy of holding to two kids dirtbikes until the weather/prices improved is going to backfire on me?! At least they don't take up much room...

    Doesn't cost anything to list it and see if it sells but stuff has been sitting unsold all over CL, from what I'm seeing there's many of the same bikes on CL and in the FM. For about 2 mos now when it typically picks up it hasn't. Many of the bikes have typical spring prices except this isn't a typical spring so they're sitting. Very few people are spending any $$ right now.

    Kids dirtbikes are a little different then the typical MC market though.

    I just sold my 2013 Vstrom 650 (well farkled and under 14,000 miles) and managed to get $4200 for it. KBB is $4425 and NADA is $4600. Woulda been nice to get an extra hundred or two, but I guess that's the price I pay for waiting too long to list it. I was ready to list it back in the fall. Oh well.

    No idea what the future will hold. I really wanna upgrade my 2005 KTM 300exc, but should probably just hold onto the extra cash.

    Isn't that more than new price?

    I just closed on a house a couple weeks ago. I was really sweating it once unemployment started to jump after places started closing. Glad to say I'm unclenched now.

    We're in the middle of moving, a process that started a few months ago and will see us putting our house on the market in late May/early June.
    I'm still having positive thoughts that there will still be buyers out there that started looking at properties and will have their ducks in a row - and haven't lost their jobs.

    I loved my FJR but it was the only bike I have ever owned that I could feel the front end push when riding kind of feisty. (OK I don't ride that hard) It was never scary but was an interesting feeling. I know Blake did some suspension upgrades on his and it was a completely different beasty.

    I had two Gen II FJR's, the '07 did get suspension work done, but that was at 40,000 miles just before I sold it :D
    It was a pretty good sportbike for it's size, but it wore out front tires as fast as rears - it was tough on fronts.

    The second one ('12) was essentially the same bike but for some reason I never bonded with it like I did the first one.
    A couple of trips to the coast and I sold it to a good friend.

    That was my 1st road bike bought it used at Laramie Wyo Honda in 78 for a grand. picked it up in a snow storm ( shop owner said I didn't think you would be here today) and rode it around town. I kept it for 30 years it was great bike 2 X country rides. Sold it on Flea bay and some guy from Germany bought it, United van lines came up it in a crate and off it went

    wish I never sold it

    Try any of the big ADV type bikes (Africa Twin, F800GS, etc) with a 21 inch front tire......you will feel the front end push when riding feisty. I consider them to be my self imposed governor on riding stupid fast....at least on the street.

    Randy, So far my AT has not felt that way. Either that or I have slowed down or learned how to check front tire pressure. :lol3

    I can't wait to try out the Trailmax Mission tires on it but that will have to wait until I get a little wear on the stockers. I loved the Heidenau K60 scouts on the Stelvio but these are supposed to be even better ??

    I ran the Scouts down to Cabo and back on the GS and they did OK. I put about 12k miles on anakee adventures last year with the AT and I really liked the predictable feedback from the front.

    I sold my Mom's house outside of Nashville. Just closed on it last Friday. I think I lucked out on timing but also benefitted from that being a very hot real estate market. Hopefully you will too.

    Feel like it could be a while before my Ducati sells. At a time like this I really miss having a bike in the garage, even if I can't use it. Like Dan Walsh said, "To them, the bike is just garage clutter. To us, it's a loaded Beretta, a half-million in cash, and a forged passport under the floorboards."

    My 07 did that until I put a 2013 shock on the rear. Many including myself felt the rear on these bikes was way undersprung from the factory and the later shocks have stiffer springs. Common upgrade and cheap, or it was, compared to Penskes etc. Also had a very weird front tire wear problem that went away same time. But I switched tires too.
