Consider me an interested party. Please let me know off list if you still
have it, and maybe we can arrange something.

>With the financial pressures of my divorce and the criminal Canadian bike
>insurance premiums, I reluctantly took my bike down to a local dealer and
>placed it on consignment last night.
>He is a Honda dealer but has a great reputation and he took out his black
>book to establish a value. The trade-in value was 2000$ and retail was
>2700$. It just never ceases to amaze me how so much bike can be worth so
>little. He pointed to a Zx9 that has been on the floor for 18 months and
>explained how the entire used Sprot bike market has collapsed due in part
>to the insurance rates.
>I have stripped the bike of the LSL, vista cruiser and grip heater setup as
>well as the Corbin saddle(c/w backrest).The factory bag setup is also
>coming off as I don't think it will add anything to the bike's value. The
>bike has a stage III setup with Jardine header, new tires, chain and
>sprockets so if I add those upgrades somebody will essentially be getting
>the bike for a little over 1000$ if I get 2500$ for it. It has 52,000 kms
>but the oil has been changed obsessively usually at 3000 kms.I can help
>deliver the bike if anybody knows an interested party.
>I will offer the stripped accessories up on the list when(if) the bike
>Next year I hope to pickup a 1000 Strom as the insurance will be 1/3 less.
