    Sad to see you sell your bike but I do understand with why you're doing it. Hopefully you'll get a good amount of money out of it. And I wouldn't imagine too many people will fork out a lot of money for it this time of year since it's starting to get cold and it's near the end of the season. You never know though... may find someone who's willing to pay a fair bit.

    I'd say you should look for somewhere in the neighbourhood of 8 grand, give or take. But you'll be able to sell it for a bit more come spring.

    Selling and trading are two different games all together.

    What are they offering you for it?

    well if I were selling it, id sell it at about 8000 right now or about 8500 in spring.

    A trade in you will get cheaped out a bit cause they want it to be sellable and at a profit too.

    These prices seem around what i was thinking. Thanks for the input

    I understand trading is a different game, the reason i was considering it is because of the tax benefits.

    I would have guessed somewhere in the $8000-$8500 range, probably on the lower end of that since it's end of season...

    Nice bike though...:bigup:
