    Etiquette Regarding Asking Prices

    I am not against freedom of expression in anyway...

    But there are far too many threads where a buyers' asking price will be publicly ridiculed for being too high.

    Please, do not tell a seller in their thread that their price is to high. While most of you are right 90% of the time, it is rude to publicly interefere with someone's attempt to sell their motorcycle or scooter. If you must tell them that their price is too high, do so in a private message, or by email, NOT in the thread.

    Additionally, for all you sellers, if you want to sell your bike but are not sure what to ask, pm me and I will ask Micah, Jon, and Ed what they think you should be asking for your bike. They have a combined 15+ years of experience with Aprilia, and can pretty quickly establish a fair value for used Aprilia's.

    Thank you all,

    I agree with most of this but I think if the seller wants to ask the forum they should be able to. Just don't offer your opinion if it is not asked for.

    Absolutely, a seller can definately consult with forum members regarding what their particular bike should be valued at.

    I am trying to eliminate the:

    the obvious

    It is between a seller - and the emotions and value perceived by the buyer. And we love these motorcycles - and the emotions invoked - of the unique Italian craftsmanship and character of the motorcycle. Ebay will give you a "sense" of values -but it is up to the individual.

    I HAD to sell my Mille(it would not fit in the trunk of my S6) and now I am again a buyer. I have also dealt in salvage and race motorcycles and I am still amazed what can take place. I have seen a Ducati 748 with bent forks and rim sell for more at an auction than a new bike!

    And yes no comments to others on the value.
