Sounds like a rant to me... You don't like the price, move on! there are bunch of tards trying to rip amateurs or are amateurs who don't know what there bike is worth.

what's the point of making a thread?

There's a saying that I heard somewhere. A good negotiation is when a deal has been made yet both parties involved are slightly disappointed.

Maybe - and maybe if you were older than 12 you would recognize a great line, Alice. You're getting us way off topic. Try to keep up. Price gouging and Arlo, not guns and bullets.

That is price gouging.
This is not even price gouging, this is just the market working the way it should. When supply falls relative to demand, the price of that good or service climbs as a signal to consumers about the new reality. If there's a panic among buyers, causing demand to rise as supply falls, then the price rises still further. Those higher prices cause people to voluntarily ration their consumption, because they can't afford to use as much as they did before.

The higher prices also alert businesspeople to the shortage, which signals producers to produce more, and retailers who already have more than enough supply in their region to send some of it into the shortage region, so they can earn higher profits than they could at home by helping to relieve the shortage elsewhere.

The alternative is government mandated price controls forcing these goods and services to remain at pre-crisis levels, which produces the incentive for the first people in line to take more than they would if the prices were higher, leaving less for the next people. It also eliminates the incentive for businesses from outside the crisis area with surplus supplies to come in to alleviate the shortage, because there are no extra profits to be earned for doing so.

Any property owner has every right if not every obligation to attain the best possible price for his property.

Since I don't want to get ban for posting in the "bikes for sale" section, I thought this comments fit nicely here. Look at this dumbass FS thread:

http://www.motohouston.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=216908

The details - 2003 R6 with 37k miles, not in mint condition and the seller is asking 5k for the bike.

Hence the reason for the Craigslist posters on crack threads...
