Anyone who is buying bikes right now has lots of great deals to choose from on new ones. Else they are buying a new truck at 0-0-0, and will worry about the bike later. It all adds up to very soft demand for used bikes. No doubt related to the economic conditions.

listed for sale in the auto trader for 3 wks and have had only 1 call. Advice...if you can wait it out, hold on til you get a good offer. If you've taken care of your bike, and your price is fair, the right buyer will come around.

I never try or expect to make money in dirt biks, buy cheap NOW and sell cheap but not to cheap later! LOL Get a bike you kow you will love and keep, tune it to your taste and ride the balls off it! Then it wont owe you to much 5 years later. If you feel you need a new ride ever year or every other year, fine, shell out the $$$$$, but I anit paying your way for like $1000 less than I could have the new bike for!!!!
