Nice handlebars too...
In Telluride, been scraped up a bit
2008 Ducati Hypermotard · Driven 21,200 miles 2008 Hypermotard 1100s with brand new Michelin pilot 3 tires. Bike has 21,000 miles. Runs well, it is due for 2nd tune up. I have the termignoni exhaust and racing ECU installed and I have the new original one in box. I have the original and racing seat. Price is firm and no test drives.
I have finally listed my 03 640 Adventure for $3200. Personally I think it's a fair price granting the miles on it but given the maintenance it has received.
But let's search 'dual sport' on the albuquerque craigslist and see who the competition is shall we?
There is a 1998 XR400 for $3500
There's an 01 XR650R for $3400, and a second 01 XR650R for $4900. I repeat, four thousand, nine hundred dollars.
An '04 DRZ 400 with 25,000 miles for $4,500.
And a friggin 1991 KLR 650 for $3150
No offense if you're one of these sellers, maybe you know something I don't. (But, it is almost September...)
91 KLR 3150 I sold my 2000 over a decade ago for considerably less.
I see inflated bike prices everywhere. Used bikes with pricing in $11-13k when they sold for under $10k just a couple of years ago. In other instances, used bikes at the current new, non-current bike prices.
It's not just bikes. Everything recreational pricing is nuts. Try looking at home exercise equipment or even bicycles. 2-3x and more what prices were prior to Covid.
For sure. Thought about a spin bike a few months ago.
Yea I have cleaned out 4 bicycles from the garage since covid. Easily 2-3 times what I would have asked last year with 3-4 people replying within an hour usually. Strange times indeed. Maybe I "release" a few more to free-up more garage space...
I sold an old Honda scooter and an old mountain bike on Craig’s week before last.
First guy who emailed me about the scooter bought it the next day for full asking price. The mountain bike took three days but again full asking price.
Guess I priced that stuff too cheap.
For some reason this pic reminded me of that scene in Crocodile Dundee, "that's a knife? THAT's a knife".
You think that's a top case? THIS is a top case...
Honda Valkyrie - $4,500 (Moriarty)
Maybe he sells ice cream out of it and the season is coming to an end?
I can't think of any other reason to have so much 'trunk'.
Looks like an Iron Butt bike , that's a big fuel cell!
Would hold 32 gallons give or take. Be quite a tank slapper should one get into that situation.
Junk. In the Trunk.
He has had that Valkyrie for sale forever. He originally wanted a grand more for the trunk but now it's only $400. Still...yuk! Although the "Just get in the trunk Honey I want to see if you will fit" trick would be a lot of fun to try!
On second thought, I probably should have gotten a dog smaller than a St. Bernard to take riding/camping..............................................
Sport touring bikes seem be exempt from the price gouging everyone is talking about.
This is a lot of bike for the money.
Honda VFR 800 - $2,700
image 1 of 4
03 Honda VFR 800 under 16K miles, new rear tire, twin bros exhaust, cruise....2700 OBO
It always shocks me how cheap bikes like RTs sell for. Bikes that sold for a premium when new, easily have 100+K of miles left in, and they sell stupid cheap?
Random example: $2500
When that bike was new the fairings cost more than $2500
Hmmmm.. that is a good looking bike. Maybe I should run down to Albuquerque
someone put one up here I thought an incredible deal. We’re it not for the spousal unit complaining we’re i to buy it the garage would be stuffed.
Those fairings still cost at least $2500, now they just come with the rest of the bike, too.
