I had to move on

I was the proud owner of a 2006 MV Agusta F4 NERO. I had great difficulty finding mechanics and parts. In April 2011 a well meaning mechanic damaged the bike. I had to wait four months for repairs to be completed. Unfortunately for me it was the four best riding months of the year. I was also unable to have the bike during the MotoGP. I had to sell.
A few months ago I posted the MV for sale on this forum for $19,500.00US. A few of the other forum members gave me a hard time for asking so much. I did sell it at the price I wanted.
The moral is, just because somebody's book has a price listed in it, it does not mean your brain should stop working and take someone elses word in deciding the value. You decide the value. After all, the true value of what you have is up to you.
By the way, I am now on a BMW S1000RR. The price was right. I have near immediate access to parts and labor.
Happy Trails,
Road Monger

So... You got $19,500 for an '06 F4? My bwain can't really process that info.

I just bought a pristine low-mile '09 1078 RR312 for $13,750.

Glad you got the price you wanted...sorry you felt you had to sell. Parts availability is improved, but too late for you, and I understand. Enjoy the Bimmer....

I used to be fast....now I just dream about it.

Sad to hear that you had to move on. It always feels like a death in the family to me.

I am happy that you got the money you wanted - that's a wonderful thing & I agree with your thoughts about value except for the last piece, the true value is what someone else is prepared to pay - in your case there was a happy marriage of the two

Wishing you happy trails also

Ps - Avert your eyes whenever possible

Can you check with the buyer to see if he wants to buy a bridge to ride his new bike on? I have a lovely one for sale.

Enjoy that Beemer. Awesome bike!

Pants up, don't loot.
