There's cost and there's value.

I've got three airheads in the garage. An R80ST and R80 and a R100GS
There's no way I could afford to go out and buy the same bikes today.

It's crazy. What's really wild is to go look at how much a BMW car from the same year has lost in it's value
Like say an 92 BMW 850I a car that new sold for nearly 80K today you can find them for under 5K with really good ones going for around 12K

IIRC the new price for a 1992 R100GS was just under 8K, today that same bike sells for between 4K and 5K
With some serious mileage on them. That's not bad depreciation at all. But when you stack it up against the car it's amazing.
