No,not on 2013's but who cares if it's an 2013 or even if it's new.
There are so many creampuff bikes out there that have little or no miles on them that the owners have lost their jobs and/or interest in riding.
It's a buyers market and cash is king.

JJ,

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.

I'll bet they still have those bikes.
Harleys aren't even holding their value.
But anyway get the extended warranty then.
I had mine self destruct at 28K.
$900

See how lucky we are here in Australia. Except for the Alpine regions and some parts of Tasmania in winter we can ride all year round. I know it is a hard life but someone has to do it. Perfect conditions here at the moment except for some real bad fires in the southern states. Oh well i'm off for a ride and I am thinking of you all.

Cheers and Beers.

Bob

PS I just could not resist stirring the possum a bit.

How exactly does one 'stir a possum'.

I know what you mean about the riding season.
Here in N. TX; there are some times from December to March; that I have to miss four or five days in a row of riding.
Ohh the humanity!!!

Actually; I get stir crazy and bundle up for a short ride if bad weather persists for too long.
