yeah, I have an 08 with only 6000 mi.looks like a brand new one. I would sell him (or her), after I took most of the extras off of it that I put on recently. i don't see any on that bike either. for about $3500.

Based on the numbers I've seen that's really not that high for a dealer.

In the shadowy recesses of my mind, the germ of an idea begins to crack through its rough and ugly husk into the light of day: Buy a cheap Versys in the Midwest, ride it to the West Coast, sell it for a profit, fly home, repeat. Sounds like a career plan to me!

Motociclista, that is an option for you if you have low overhead. Back in the 80's my best friend did exactly that with cars. He'd go up to Missouri, buy a car and drive it to Cali and sell it for 3-5 times what he paid for it. He'd work a month and take two off. Repeat. He did it for almost two years. Then he fell in love and she made him get a real job. Lol!

Do most modern motorcycles comply with the Cali emission laws Joe!!???
I'd certainly give the "buy cheap & sell at a profit" route if it was feasible.
Do you know anyone who wants to buy anything in particular Joe!!!???

It can be a 49 state bike but its needs 7500 miles on it to get registered here if brought in from another state. As of 2013 no aftermarket exhaust on the 13 or newer bikes. I knew a couple of guys looking i sent them links to good deals in Texas but they didn't want to make the trip (p.u.s.s.i.e.s.) They both paid a lot more for what they got here.The deals were good enough that i would have went. I was about to go to texas to pick up a 07 FJR then the one i got popped up at a better price just 2 hours away.

I like buying things that require a long drive, I bought a pontoon off of ebay in Conroe tx. 2 years ago. had a great vacation, got a great deal, and the people in Conroe were unbelieveable, everyone I met went out of their way to help us. took an alternate route home and discovered "land between the lakes" area in western ky. wow! what a great place, stayed there 4 days.-----I have a covered trailer to haul my versys in, maybe I should take it to ca. to sell it. it will be another year at least, before I have 7500 miles on it though. been thinking about selling it and the trailer and buying a new versys and a bigger trailer.------

I've had a couple fun weekend trips funded by buyers, while selling bikes on Ebay. Usually I'll say "Email me for possible delivery". If it's someplace I want to go, I'll just charge them for a good part of the gas, if it's near someplace I want to go, they pay ALL the fuel cost. If it's Boise Idaho they pay for all the fuel, food and lodging, haha.

Bike is SOLD. Cool for me. The shop he bought it at is in Bensalem, PA about 30 minutes away from me. Maybe He'll join the club or I'll make a Versys spotting this spring..

Maybe I'm missing something. Seems a little high, nothing so crazy it warrants a thread pointing out a ridiculous selling price. Sure, I've seen better deals, but I've seen worse as well.
