I'm getting the urge to get another bike (but one that's tempered by SWMBO's tight fiscal policy). Out of curiosity I looked up Suzuki SV1000S models on Bikesales. I was somewhat surprised by the asking prices for them. So, I looked up what Redbook, the bike evaluation guide had to say. Some of the bikes on offer are in the ballpark, others, "tell 'im 'e's dreamin'" type of asking prices. Still, the asking price and guide for say, a 2003 model seems fairly high. I know that RB is only a guide and some suggest a very rough one at that. Even so, one fellow's asking $11,000 for an '03 model, while some '07 models are closer to $10k than they are to $9k. And it's a fairly basic bike, too. I've found far better deals for the competing model, the Honda VTR1000F.
