not bad especially if it really was beautiful 2014

isn't it crazy we could rarely get $3500 for ultra primo TW"s and now it's the base price for the used market

Wow!
Hope someone here gets that deal. Fred? Near you, buddy. I'd consider it as a flip if I wasn't up to my ass getting ready for Quartzsite AND Moab right after.
Think it will still be there in March?

Same seller as the one Brian posted. I wonder what he would take for the pair?
I bet he'd take $4,500 for both and be done with them.

I'm too busy too and while I do plan a run up to Seattle this week I don't like driving the "inland route" through Reno during winter I have been caught in zero degree snow and ice storms in the area too many times

they have been $6000 OTD for a decade now

the good news is that you probably can't find a new TW to buy regardless

the market has been strong for 2 years and if you buy at todays

prices you can always get your money back TW'ws are a sold

investment possibly unparalleled in the moto world

I searched on the Yamaha website and found about three bikes close enough that I would be willing to make a drive to see them. They list the msrp at 4799 dollars. I'm in Alabama. So when I get to the dealer you think they are going to jack the price up? Bummer. I know motorcycles and all recreation vehicles are scarce now, but I'm used to haggling. I've never paid full retail price much less over retail price. Oh well, I need to sell my XR650L first.

Yes....get the 'out the door' price in writing via Email. IF you have that, & put a deposit on it, you should be ok when you pick it up. If they do not give you that, run, don't walk away.

I've told this story before but ride south (west) in Glendale listed a nice 2005 TW for $1995 when they came back from the rubber room with the total it was $6800 and this was back when a mint 2005 was wirth barely $3k

I asked the salesman how he could scam people like that and why can't they be honest? of course he said they were always honest lol

I ended up buying the TW for $2500 OTD which was still a steal

it had 105 miles and they gave the retired CHP officer who owned it $300 trade in

I hear you. I'm just waiting to hear back from a couple of dealers. I'm not confident they will quote me a decent price, but you never can tell.

Nice XT225.


Posted 37 minutes ago
2004 XT225 Dual Sport - $2,850 (East Sacramento)

123456789

2004 yamaha xt225

VIN: JYA4BEC0X4A067379
condition: excellent
engine displacement (CC): 225
fuel: gas
odometer: 4620
paint color: silver
title status: clean
transmission: manual
type: dual-sport

Lightly used 2004 xt225 dual sport with current registration and just 4,620 miles on it.

Bought it last year from the original owner for my wife to learn to ride on.

Bike had never been off road or dropped.

Took off the turn signals and my wife rode it 3 times, decided its not for her.

Bike is stock and runs well, 4,620 miles, pink slip in hand.

I guess I can deliver it if needed.

Please send phone number if you want to get a call back. Too many fake people on craigslist.

Dam you, Brian!
If I felt better, I'd own this. Or at least go check it out.
