Always comes down to local market value and the actual condition of the bike. Lots of goodies!

Are there any other local Craiglist ads for similar bikes? What are those prices?

I paid 3800 for my 06, but it was street legal w/ low hours. Very good condition.

I would think that would be a good deal if it isn't ragged out.

Thanks. Do you think 1100 miles is a lot for this type of bike or is that pretty normal usage for 3 seasons? Would changing the fork seals already be normal too?

I would say that 1100 miles for 3 years is on the low hours side. Fork seals is normal to change. I probably change them 1 to 2 times a year depending on how much I ride and how well I clean the trash out of the seal.
