Totally agree, but I have to say when it comes to buying used vehicles, there are ones you can buy and enjoy and not loose as much money when it's time to sell. So if your about to drop 13K on a Sport 1000, maybe it's a better idea to drop 15K on a PS...things like that.
I'm currently looking for a 916/996/998 and while i'm not looking to invest, I realize that I wont own the bike forever, and when it's time to go I'd like to "loose" as little as possible. So maybe it's worth it to spend a little bit more for a 998, or a perfect first gen 916...I duno
I remember when I bought my SC in 2013. ? was 3005 km on the clock.
Have to go to Germany and drive about 850 km one way by car heh.
When I saw red beuty live I knew it she has to be mine. That time I pay 12.500 euro for 2007 red Biposto
But owner give me also some parts big box. With another seat Brand New, etc.
I think Im very happy with this bike.
Now I put around 20.000 km and still going like New. Im trying not to go on rainy days.
Thought i would chime in as i just paid $4,700 for a 2008 gt1000 touring edition with 14k miles. One owner, never down, bike in near flawless condition. I waited for a while for a price like this and i think the current economic conditions helped me some too. I have not seen one sell for less than $7,500 state side for a while now. Most around that price with much higher mileage. I shipped the bike and have someone who will give $8,500 for the bike but my plan is to ride if for a few years and sell for $12k+ if i can when the economy improves.
Bought my S1k Bipo new in 2008. For me it's not a collector bike, it's a bike I thoroughly enjoy riding. That's what I spent the money for. I don't worry about how many miles I've put on it or its potential resale value. I understand that some folks like to collect but that's not for me.
The true value is the shit eating grin I get when I open it up on a lonely back road.
Good afternoon all. Its been a while since Ive been on here. I was a proud owner of a full faring sport classic 1000s and had to part with it.
It was an unfortunate time but Ive decided to start looking for another one.
Do any of you guys know of any clean Paul Smart or 1000s bikes are or...
I went looking and didn't find a "What Did You Do . . . " thread for SC's. Found Streetfighter, Hyper, etc. but no SC. Thought I'd start one for us. (I could be wrong and just missed finding it but . . .)
New sprockets and chain for my GT. Always a nice thing to look at.
Well, long story short I've managed to destroy my oil cooler.
A related thread sort of describes the issue at hand, wherein the oil lines vibrate loose and bathe bike and rider in hot oil.. easily solved by retightening the lines.. only in my case, I suffered a "lapse in judgement" and...
Donut Dip in West Springfield Mass. is the best donut shop I have found since I moved here about 2 1/2 years ago. In Phoenix AZ. the best donuts were at Bosa Donuts. But the best donuts I have ever had were at Westend Donuts and Deli in Gallup New Mexico. Every time my wife and I go cross...
