I haven't read every entry on this post, but I don't thinks it's always about price.
I had my VTX listed all summer, from early May, and all I had was guys offering speed boats & SxS quads in trade. Basically they were trying to off load their unwanted stuff for something better.
One couple came to look at it and bought it on the spot for (then) asking price. I had lowered the price a couple times over the summer, but eventually got pretty much what I was expecting in the first place.
They had crashed their Nomad earlier in the summer & were ready to get back on the road. One of their friends in the riding group offered them his Stratoliner, but they weren't interested. Another guy rode a VTX, and they were convinced this would be the best move for them. Lots of power & torque and the promise of a long, low maintenance life.
I think I'd done a nice job on my bike and took good care of it. It was perfect for their needs.
Patience is a virtue .....
