It doesn't matter to me I made the offer for a friend of mine who is looking for one . He has homes in Traverse City and southern Cal , chance are he will buy this one . http://flagstaff.craigslist.org/mcy/4657245733.htmlThe only reason i am selling it because my wife bought me 2013 brand new from ower local dealer and was going to give it to me for Christmas ��
I feel the same way , 200 miles or 5000 if it's pristine it's all the same to me , except the price . I bought my 06 for 3K with 4K on the clock . I just bought a pristine 05 with 8K on the clock for 3.5K . Both ride and handle like new so those few miles make no difference at all . That said this is a very nice bike and it will eventually sell for a decent price , it might take several months but I'm reasonably sure it will bring decent money .Bike is not new - it is 4 years old, 173 miles too. It is just another a low mileage bike.
One owner at best.
OEM gas.I think it a bit of a decrease in value if a bike has not been ridden for that many years. 200 miles in four years? It's been ignored, IMHO. Id prefer to see a few K on the clock after that much time, preferably recent.
My 2005 had only 3500 miles when I bought it last year and I was quite leery of the low mileage. But the price was right at $3,300. I still had to change all fluids, including coolant and the battery. Couple hundred dollars there. Some things are time sensitive.
I can understand turning down a $4,000 offer on the first day of listing, but I probably would jump on an offer that was only $200 less than my asking price. In todays market you need to have at least a little bargaining room in your asking price if you want to sell.5500 firm have turned down 5300 cash but thank you bike is brand new not scratch
Hang in there. That's a good price. Don't get discouraged by prices you see for non-ABS bikes. It's a different market. Execs are worth at least $1,000 more than non ABS models, and there are people looking for them. I sold a 2102 exec with 10,000 miles for $6400 in June. I don't see much price variance between 09-12.I bought from guy that only put that many miles on it not knowing my wife bought me brand new one
