Also, I'm not really into the wrapped look. I'd consider re wrapping as a temporary fix, but I'd ultimately go for another set of pipes.

I don't like that the wraps can't get wet either. I mostly commute, take the long way home, and enjoy riding trips - wouldn't want to be worried about getting my pipes ruined by some rain.

I'm hoping to offer my trade - 06 Speed Triple 23k clean - plus $2000.
Be sure to check Craig’s List for a good deal. Great work on those block off plates!

I've been checking Craigslist, CycleTrader, and Facebook Market a few times a day watching for new updates >.<

There's a few in my area. Saw this one in person about two weeks ago and it looks clean except for those pipes.

I'd walk at that price...With a little looking you can find nicer for a whole lot less. That's a $4500 bike IMO.

^^^^^^^ what he said. IMO the bike's apparent condition does not warrant the asking price.

Try to stay around the 5k mark.

Also if you do like the way the sound and look you can always have them chromed, ceramic coated, cerakoted or rewrapped.

44221, there's a few out here --- I'd burn a tank of gas to pick one up, but until the Triumph is sold, I'll have opt for trade-in plus cash.

Thats a dealership price, the economy is suffering and lots of folks sell their bikes 1st when faced with having to cut back. I would look for a private owner who has had their bike on the market for a while, who is willing to negotiate. Thats what I did, I bought my 2006 Warrior for $4,500 W/ less than 7,000 miles and looks new. But I was willing to pay the price.They are out there, you just have to be patient.
