Difference between spring and fall sales. People just expect to pay less in the fall. It is a beautiful bike and definitely the best color so far on the V. Wish they would have held off on that color until '11. Good luck with the sale.
As a comparison I have seen brand new 2011's going for $5,500 to $6,000. No they don't have the bags but when you can pop $1K more, maybe less, people are going to go for the new bike.
Just a thought.
I'd like to see a link for that. The lowest I've seen was $6399 + $500 freight and setup, + $260 DMV fees for a total of $7159, which makes a low mileage '09 with nice bags and racks seem like a pretty good deal at $5000.
