For a grand, you could do a whole lot worse. (If it had a title, that is.)

Ive noticed a trend in used dirt bike pricing. There is a point, usually around 1-2k, where most people feel, even if the bike is older and rough, taking any lower would be like giving the bike away. If you arn't feinding to ride, wait until a newer, cleaner bike to show up. I bought my 01 dr650 with 16k and very clean for 1.8k. A 96 with more miles probably wont go for lower and a newer with less miles wouldn't be that much more either.

True, kind of basic ECO1101 stuff.

Then there are those who just want the fkn thing gone, but still think it's special and ergo: high dollar

I'm not that guy. There will be a good condition '95 DR350SE on the block soon at a get-outta-my-face price

I swear sometimes craigslist ads are worth reading just for the amusement they provide. This ad for a non-running '75 RD250 is an example:
http://pensacola.craigslist.org/mcy/3769547757.html

I guarantee a good checking of the wiring system which could be as simple as a grounding wire chances are you could be riding the sameday. This bike is fast. and loud and if you dont believe me ask my neighbors they love it so much they called the cops whenever I came by thought i was disturbing peace

SDH, is that you?

And if that one wasn't entertaining, definitely this one is:
http://pensacola.craigslist.org/mcy/3762879082.html

Needs to be put back together,not wrecked, valve cover and top need to be put back on $200 @ shop,,,,, worked tell some idiot, me! had. a skilled friend bored 250+++300w pipe, ,,,, but friend got grimy ....so now I basically have a pile of shit, but if you've every had a 250 KLR ... don't make them anymore. All parts are in good .not near salt water kept indoors..New $200 oring chan new tires new brakes new sprocket.... look @ pic ....go to eby..... get $1000 cash and then call me.... put Kawasaki intitle: I have a KLX 250 and a KLR 650 that's why I'm selling this buy it for a thousand . ... peace.

OK, some thoughts here: first, don't create a craigslist ad on meth. Second, yer waaay high on that asking price, as in, not even in the ballpark of reasonable. A grand for a parts bike KLR Jr. is insane in the membrane. Third, what the hell is a "bored 250+++300w pipe?" Is that the pipe you use for smokin crack? Fourth, I gotta give ya credit for admitting the truth..."I basically have a pile of shit"...yessir. You do indeed.
