    The price doesn't drop, just the number of ads.

    We get the same thing with Laughlin out here (mid to late April each year). Every March the ads start popping up, "Ready for Laughlin" and such in every one. The bikes that don't sell and continue to be listed retain the same pricetags at the end of April.

    Besides, most of the people out there that ride and attend rallies already have a bike...not to be confused with "most people that attend rallies have a bike".

    As a small percentage of what a "normal" version would sell for. Moreso if it has no title. It never ceases to amaze me how many morons out there will price a parted out bike/no title for a couple hundred under KBB retail...

    Clean title, just one downcheck problem that costs a lot to fix and a bunch of maintenance needed that pushes it beyond the cost of a new one.
