I'm looking at one for sale. It's got quite a bit of the costly farkles on it, but the guy's asking 5800, which seems a bit high to me. Any opinions?
I just pulled the trigger on an 09 model today for less than that out the door including tax. The bike only had nine hundred miles on it and was traded in at the local Honda Dealer. I grabbed as it was my color choice and I've been looking for on under six for a VERY long time. Has extended warranty as well and has the essential farkles if not many of them. I feel like farkles are only valuable if you would be buying them for yourself and if so you should take that into consideration. I am hoping that twenty one thousand is not a big deal on mileage as I put forty thousand miles a year on a BMW and I am now finally able to find out how durable these Wee's are. I am guessing with decent maintenance it should go everybit as far as the Beemer does and I should not have to worry about final drive failures or too heavy for the soft stuff.
Short answer, depending on WHAT farkles, that price might be good ... Best of luck. I would have paid more for this bike just because it was so low miles and the right color for me.

That is about more what I was looking for, but I've not had too much luck recently.Last year bought 08 650abs with 1800k miles and tons of farkles for $5300.
