    My point is, it's the market that determines something's value - rather than your opinion.

    DeMyer's Laws - an argument that consists primarily of rambling quotes isn't worth bothering with.

    Really dear? Is that how it works?

    And I observe shit tons of these bikes are relisted forever, validating my opinion thus proving why I am much smarter and more astute than you.

    Maybe you should stick around. You might learn something. My other friends here also seem remarkably good at picking clangers as well.

No mention of tuning to cope with the changes in the exhaust system or removal of airbox and install of pods. The pipe wrap will eat the headers in a year or two... and yet another brown seat... wtf is it with these brown seats??

    Aside from those, this isn't a particularly well kept example, even if had been stock. Red silicon sealing goo visible at all cooling hose unions. The sealing boots on the wiring loom are obviously cracked and split. It's just going to be a year or two before the issues start.

    Actually I should probably come clean. As a Social Influencer I hold significant sway over the buying public. But Katman has rumbled me.

    I'm actually in the pocket of. . . Big Motorcycle. Dumdumdum.


    KTM and Suzuki directly pay me to undermine interest in specific bikes that could dilute the new bike market. 2 other inbetweeners which I assume are Kawasaki and Yamaha have made contributions. Honda of course has it's own cyber operations which is why sometimes your Bluetooth does immediately hook up.

    It is of course a Consp. .... urrgh. They got me.....

    Not really. Look at the last one he voted for.

    Phew. Well it was only a flesh wound, but I'll be more careful. I was of course making it all up.



    Hey hey, Suzuki summer fest is coming. Push your old bike off a cliff and sign up for easy plan finance.

    Just sayin. Be like me.

    I feel the price of copper is too high. Boy I wouldn't want to have shares in copper right now.




    (I've branched out to sabotaging Wall Street stocks from this powerful platform. Not sure of the technology, I think its connected by worm holes).

    Some-one asked me a similar question about two days ago. Hence my surprise when I first read your post.

    I like your optimism, but I feel that you may be swimming against the tide:

    911 and wars in the Middle East have done wonders for the copper price.

    And I wouldn't hold your breath re a drop in prices in the near future.

    Dude I just take the money and make my play.

    I'd respect you more if you bought a new KTM. Race ready. Choice of a new generation. Damn! Stepped back into the 90s for a moment. Dont think anyone noticed .
