    Forget about it... I checked out the prices on Cycletrader. You are so fucking wrong. :o

    They're going for $8,000-$12,000 used :sad2:

    Why would you make such a weird claim? :confused:

    how and the hell is a 10K bike go up to 12K in one year, if thats the case man, I think I am going to buy a new bike!!!

    Also maybe the area you live in bikes maybe more expensive, down here in florida, I see atleast 3 or more H-D's a day, and only like 1 or 2 Imported bikes.

    That's a Blast that you posted a link for. It's a total starter bike and nowhere near a Lightning as you indicated what you wanted.
