From CraigsList I thought I had a used 2006 that was bought new in 2/06. He had an extended warrant to 2011 & some riding gear (that I don't need). Bike only had 150 miles on it. He wanted too much for it, $4000. The Kelly Blue Book & NADA Book show the retail is only between $3308 & $3380 for used 2006. I was going to offer him $3400 & maybe split what he paid for extended warranty (what do they cost) since it was transferable, he could keep he riding gear. Well I called him this morning & he said he was going to keep the bike. Maybe he will actually start to ride it now!
There is also a used 2006 with 2000 street mile at a dealership near by & they want $3350 for it, supposed to be in immaculate shape. Not a lot of used XT225s for sale in my area. I'll see what I can get a new one for & if that doesn't work out I'll try to work a deal on the used one. Some how I'm going to get an XT225 Serow.
