I placed an ad on Craig's List about two weeks ago for my two-tone '08 C90T. I put the asking price at $6,000. To date, I have received just one reply and that was from a scammer. I placed this ad because a guy I ride with has a BMW 1200RT and he is gently trying to get me to step up to what he refers to as "the ultimate experience in motorcycling". "Ride one of these", he says, "and you'll never look back." So I went to the BMW dealership here in Denver the other day to look at this particular model and saw that it is priced at $19,600, plus tax. Now I live a pretty comfortable life but that's still a lot of dough for two wheels. Trade in? They want nothing to do with that, either. The salesman said that Harley owners in particular are in for a surprise when they see how values have dropped on their bikes.
I guess the reason I say all of this is because what really motivates me to sell is probably the old "gotta keep up with the Jones mentality." There's absolutely no reason why I should not be satisfied with what I have. It's a great bike and a great value for about half the cost of the BMW. Maybe it's good that no one has inquired about the bike - good in that it might keep me from doing something I don't really need to do - but I'm still kind of scratching my head over the complete lack of interest in a really good bike with a decent price.
