the above posts are pretty much along the lines of my own thinking. yes it's a nice bike it is worth the asking price. for me no it is a great bike no doubt but still 11 years old. not old enough to be a classic too old to be considered new if was still in it's packing case and not registered may be a different story.
but any potential buyer would have to consider the use it was bought for stick it in a warehouse and leave it another 10 or 15 years then take it to a classic auction like John h suggests ok. but to buy it ride put some miles on it. it is just another good condition 11 yo EX500. what is one of those worth in the US. I suspect not a lot owing to the number of members queuing up to buy it.
we all (well most of us) own ride and look after our bikes. they are old and require TLC that is what makes them fun.
if the seller gets the price he wants fine. if a buyer pays the price and is happy fine. no issues from me. there is no malice or hidden agendas in any of my answers just honest opinions.
