I've noticed there has been a recent flood of Speed Triples selling in the classifieds section of TRat. They are mostly post-2004 models. So what's up with that?

Is this forum just too much for the faint of heart (I like to think so:D), or have the 'new' body style owners come to realize that the pre-'05 models are better looking? :p

For many, it's probably the economic downturn's effects on those that still have loans on their bikes and need to get rid of that payment.

An interesting question. However, it may simply be the season. What better time to sell a bike than at the first of Spring? On the other hand, I try to buy bikes between Labor Day and Presidents Day when people find themselves in a bind and I can help both of us out.

There's a lot of great deals on motorized stuff right now. I picked up an 03 quad a few weeks ago for peanuts. Bad economy and the first thing to go is peoples' toys. I'm thinking of buying a used dual sport or dirt bike soon. The Missus can drive the quad.
