Perhaps I am "preaching to the choir" as they say...But, I don't understand. I have owned my 00 Bird for 5 years. It has 19,xxx on it. The best word that describes it is "sublime". It is smooth, reliable, brutally fast, and IMHO, arguably one of, if not thee most beautiful mass produced motorcycles ever made - Ducati or Augusta not withstanding. Not once in five years has it given me the least bit of mechanical difficulty - NOT ONCE. The CBR1100XX has never left the Top 5 Fastest bikes of all time since it's creation.
- Why then, do I see our bikes sell for pitifully low sums with less than 15 or 20,000 miles on them?
- Why do other sport touring bikes with, IMHO, less to offer and much higher miles sell for significantly more?
I don't understand. This is not a rant, but rather a call for discussion. I would be very interested to know what you think. Perhaps I am being overly biased...But I just don't understand
