I understood what you meant. And perhaps not gently, I was suggesting that you are incorrect as to why there are a lot of them for sale. If the bikes were dogs, the majority of the ones for sale would be either low miles or low dollars or both. They are not. 1150s still command remarkably good money used, and you can still sell an 1100GS.
