Cool (but zu teuer) Pinzgauer. Though I'd take that Unimog (1500?) in the background over it in a heartbeat!

If you look at this photo, you'll notice that it has 3 out of 4 rocker switches populated meaning that it likely has heated grips, flashers, and a switch for something else (Liquid Schwartz perhaps.)

The 3rd Rocker switch is for the ABS

At least you don't have to worry about what kind of cruising speed highway mileage it gets... As it probably struggles to break 50 mph

Kids, don't do drugs, m'kay?

I know the seller.

He bought the XRR brand new in '05 and has yet to ride the bike.

Damn Baby Boomers. Too much money, weird obsessions, and insane expectations of value. Oy!

Note the use of the word "invested", I often wonder what interest rate folks expect on their investment to offset the depreciation.

Yeah, another 10+ YO bike with almost zero miles. He's come close to selling both of these bikes at least a dozen times. I think they will end up as part of his estate when he passes away years from now.

He has $10,500 into it and wants $12k out of it?

It is a nice bike, but I doubt that there's anyone in today's economy willing to pay that.

Holy crap, if I recoup every $10 plus item I put into/on all of my bikes, I'd probably be able to buy a small cabin near Salida and retire!

I think $6K, $7K tops for a new-old-stock XR650 with some pretty standard add ons. And only to somebody who loves 650's (and there aren't many left). Maybe, maybe, maybe a professionally prepped full-on baja race bike XR650 in immaculate condition would be worth $12K.

Earlier today, I was feeling sorry for myself as I squeezed past my bikes and bicycles in my half car garage. Back in the office, I decided to search for dream garages with attached houses. You know, the kind of place you'd want to host a ADV party for BBQs, wrenching, hooligan races, and the like. Something with a six car detached workshop for example, tall enough to drive a Sprinter into and maybe a little lake front, and a little acreage.

Drool!

.... someday.
