Never would have thought that, always made quota. That said the new tarrifs imposed 2 years ago made parts 40% more expensive overnight and put used bikes up 20%. Had mine a year, did 5k on it and sold it for 1500 more than I paid new, quods in, cheers Trump Image

You must have found a rich muppet, lol.

Don't get me wrong, a bike with 5k is practically new, but who would pay MORE for that than a new one?

I actually traded it in, was surprised myself. Paid off my finance and gave me 3k towards the Diavel, best bike I've ever traded. Think the price on new 48's went really high due to new import fees.

Ah fair enough, a trade in makes sense as they've got room to play on the new bike, but glad it worked out well for you

You still got the Diavel?
