Question Selling suggestions?

Hey all,
I'm looking for some suggestions on selling (yes, selling) my '03 LT. I'm relocating from MN to AZ this year (longer riding season!) and it doesn't look like I'll be able to take a long trip this year, so rather than hauling the bike down (I've got a '06 FJR1300 as well) I thougtht I'd put the LT up for sale. I've put it up on CycleTrader and Craigslist, but was looking for some other suggestions. I could obviously put it up on this forum, but I have to think that most here already have their LT and aren't shopping for one.

Any other ideas?

Thanks!
Scott

Scott, PM me the particulars. There is a guy at work that has been talking about upgrading from his Gold Wing.

I have always had good luck with E-Bay selling big ticket items.

I would list it on this site. There seems to always be someone looking for an LT. Sure wouldn't hurt anything.

eBay....gee, how obvious. Don't know why I didn't think of that, particularly since I've bought and sold several items there.

I think I'll post here as well, as you said, it can't hurt....

Thanks!

be careful of paypal

I have heard from a person, who bought my k1200lt recently , how he was screwed from paypal. It was suggested that it protects the buyer better then the user. So just passing around what I had heard first hand, seems to be very few incidents but still you could get stuck..Knowledge is power!

BTW Craigs list and this site is a great start, and it is free. Also Cycle Trader, for a couple of days.

I bought my first LT (R.I.P.) from someone on this site. I was mostly lurking about and trying to absorb some info.
