What do you know that I don't

Why did these bikes not sell? A minimum bid of $500.00 didn't draw any interest?

And how does he have a 2010 with this mileage on it already?

A lot of people don't like to mess with 'reserve' auctions. If the seller wants to play games and won't say what their minimum price is then a lot of buyers will simply move on to one who will.

I'm not sure what is so odd, 2,500 miles is nothing.

yes 2010 is out for sale since sept 2009 i think. not selling in eu either, price is lower than gsa or rt even costed much more originally. i think has something to do with handling inside the city, gt is really bad and people wants allrounders mostly. also new gt's are not selling.

The GT''s have a lot of issues, both the 1200 and 1300. BMW blew it.

Hopefully, the S1000RR will prove they can build a bike that isn't a whore for the dealer's shop. Mine )2006) has spent too much time in shops (maybe 7 different ones) until I got all its issues dealt with. Good thing it has a 3 year warranty and 4 more years on the extended maintenance (which may be a POS policy. Dunno).

Just yesterday it was on the stands again for a friggin flat tire 45 miles from home. That God for the compressor (which got really hot!), Stop-and-Go plugger, and some Fix-A-Flat from the local mountain store for good measure. Some piece of metal shard cut it with about 1/2 inch slit. Poked it inside tire since I didn't carry a needle nose pliers for digging it out. Need to get a small pair of those to carry with the tire kit.

Got it home and changed it into a new tire installed last night in the dark back yard. Took two hours for removal, mounting, and balancing. New Pilot has a much more triangular cross-section which should make it corner faster than the slow Maxxis that was on it.
