I think he's saying that asking $12K for an '06 is pretty much the same as saying "not for sale"

Yep i have seen alot of that. i would not pay 12k for anything but the most tricked out custom liner out there, and then it would have to suit my taste not there's so like that would ever happen.

Also vstar 1300 up the road 2008 model guy wants 8700. i laughed pretty hard.

Yeah...that's kind of a lot. Buy like, maybe 6 grand. Considering that new 09's with no miles on them are going for $8000 (roadliner) and $9000 (strato).

A good chuckle nonetheless.

Survey says "B" LOL


Buddy of mine did that last spring with his 2007 FLHTCU when they needed some cash. The dealer offered him $11k. He put it up for $17,500. Found their way through and we're going riding this weekend I hope.

I test rode a BMW k1200LTC last week and they offered me $5k for my '08 Strat.

$5k is insulting.

it was. because his asking price is a starting point for negotiation. it's $2K lower than a new price for that model, and his accessories were probably several thousand dollars. the paint job alone could easily have been at least $2K-$3K. could have very low miles on it since it wasn't posted. so when you actually take a moment to think about it, it's not that unreasonable of an asking price. so where's the humor and sarcasm now? debunked. so again, i don't get it. because i took a moment and thought about it
