Selling a bike can be frustrating and sometimes too long so riding season is shorter when bike is finally sold.  A guy in his 50s looking for a second bike to get his SO on the back is your target audience. I'm nosy and I went on Craigslist. Not many older 6 cylinders available where I'm at but their asking prices are still higher than your area. Saw that there was an '05 with less miles and lower price than yours on the Tacoma list. Couldn't tell if his had been on the board for a longer period than yours. But each bike averaged 5000 miles per year which means the weak links (not many on a Wing) have already been addressed. Maybe time to park outside on nice days in high visibility areas with sign "discounted" on it. Don't lower price, just phrase it differently.... GLWTS!

Wish was possible.  I live in a gated community.  Will try one more price drop, then off for consignment she goes.  Got a new Triumph Tiger coming too, so bike has to go.  Insert sad face.

Bummer... but at least your gated commnity seems to be a bit more understanding, and at least allows you to actually ride one in, and keep it at your home...
Unlike those hoy-paloy communities where my in laws lived on Hilton Head Island... couldn't even enter on any of them on 2 wheels.. (thanks to the "loud pipes" riders... ), really made it a pain to ride to visit family,

Just search out "bike nights" at local drive in restaurants, and such, and hang a sign on it there while muching burgers and such...

Here she is.  So now have to tear it to pieces to install accessories.   :-[

Congrats on the new Wing! Just bought myself the exact same bike! And I too am in Seattle. See you out there!

Good day today.  Bought a new blue 2018 Goldwing Tour DCT, and a new 2018 Triumph Tiger 800 XRT.
Retirement is a rough job but someone has to do it.   ;D

Had so much dual-sport fun in Columbia and Argentina this winter that I'm going to head up to the Arctic Ocean to Tuktoyaktuk, NT, Canada this summer on the Tiger.
This trip should even be more remote than Prudhoe 7 years ago.
