    Anyone? Bueller?

    I'd do $8500 for NESRians...

    Good luck; it'll go. Everyone wants one but nobody wants one. I had a 2016 in silver (also an 1190 adventure ;-)); never had more trouble selling a bike than that AT. The 1190 brought lots of buyers from all over NE.

    It's crazy; at this price you'd think people would be all over it. Less than the cost of a V-Strom 650 but SO much more capable!

    Granted, NESR isn't the most likely forum for an ADV bike, but it's not getting much interest on ADVrider either.

    I had no offers on my Speed Triple. Nothing, not even a "low ball" Closed the thread. It's not costing me anything to sit in the garage. I don't need the money.

    You'd probably have to lower the price to $8k before any offers, just sayin. So hang on to it til next spring. I know you not hurting for storage space thats for sure!

    I do hope its goes soon.

    Another selling idea, join New England Riders Sell & Buy FB page and list it there:

    NER - Sell & Buy Motorcycle Classified Public Group | Facebook

    Maybe join their main page, too, lots of ADV and dual sport posts:

    I ended up selling my VFR1200x through rumbleon.com

    I didn't get as much as a private sale would have netted but it was really quick and hassle free.

    Passed an AT the other day on the highway. It had a pipe and sounded exactly like... a Harley!? Kerry noted that it was like a tv show where they get the wrong sound clip for the motorcycle. Odd.

    Still, someone should buy this and do the TAT.

    Strange indeed. I really like the sound of the AT motor, especially opened up some.

    I can't say I've noticed that from them driving by, but I don't really pay attention to that.

    I have ridden in groups with three different ATs for thousands of miles and they have never once reminded me of a Harley.

    I would have given the riders a ration of shit if that thought popped into my head

    LOL. well, it was the first thing both Kerry and I thought as one passed by. We are pretty in tune with bikes. It surprised us both. No idea what pipe it was.

    I wanna say it's the firing sequence. More staccato than other twins that have a more natural balance.

    I hear that when the bike is sitting, but as it drove by, nothing. Not like a piped VRF by any stretch.
