I completely agree(d) with you. I had cash and went out looking for a slightly used but largely loved bike this fall and was shocked by the prices guys were asking for their 2009's-11's. They were all more than what I paid for a new one. Kawi Canada has good factory incentives right now which evened the playing field. Even with $$ in hand the guys would not budge much on their beloved rides.
