FS; 2006 Yamaha TTR 125E

I need some breathing room in the garage and this is the only bike I have that never gets ridden. I got it for my wife for Xmas 2007 to replace her Aprilia RS50 that got stolen. She never rode that one either. Anyway I would like to sell this thing, but being my one and only offroad vehicle, I have no clue what to ask. I have scanned craigslist and ebay and have seen prices vary from 1200 to 2000...

I don't know the condition of any of those, but this one is pretty much brand new. The tires still have th red/yellow/green lines on them from new. I think my wife rode the bike 2 times for about a half hour or so. I ride it about 3 times a year just to run it and when I warm it up to change the oil. I think I have spent more time winterizing and oil changing on this thing than it has been ridden. It has only been ridden in my 1.5 acre lot. I was hoping my wife would enjoy riding this so I could get a CRF150 or something small and we could do some trail riding, but that never materialized.

I am going to list it on Craigslist for $1600 for now, if that is too much or too little let me know and I'll edit the price. I have damn bikes all over the place right now; garage, basement, shed and I am already thinking ahead for winter as to where they will all go. (I keep my jeep and my accord in the garage in the winter too!) I'm not desperate to sell, but it would be cool if someone had some fun on this thing instead of it sitting idle all the time.

Here are some pics;



After many years and many dreams I have realized my goal of riding in all 50 states!

Now the rest of the world!

Thanks. I'm sure I'll be bombarded by all the rednecks in my area looking to trade a 83 mustang or a chevy 350 motor with a blown transmission. I hate selling anything for this reason. I am an idiot magnet, even over the internet I attract all kinds of crazy's. Hopefully someone with a kid (and cash) will see this and pick it up.

This bike here would almost be perfect. She's 5'6"ish and 120lbs. I don't want new and wanted to stay in the $1000-$1500 range.

I says 10 hrs driving. I took the liberty of adding a few hrs for pick-up, piss breaks, etc. So yes, 10+10 does = 24!

Pfft.. I drove all the way to Wisconsin on St. Patricks day to pick up a bike for my wife. 24 hours is nothing for your little girl.

You know you want it.

Thanks. Figures the interested parties are about the same distance in opposite directions.

Sounds like a plan. I'm up for it. I wonder if I can haul this on the back of my 900rr.... Nah.

I've got a broken washing machine and if we could work out a payment agreement for the balance, I could take it off your hands.

Could I lay that thing in the back of an SUV? I need to retrieve one of the vehicles I still have in Evansville. I could just swing through Ohio.

If youve got a reciever hitch, I could ship my carrier up for you to use - or even sell it to you, if you want one - :

Dude... Get in line. I've already got 3 broken washing machine deals going right now. I also have one guy willing to trade a 1963 deep freeze with a family of raccoons living in it. I'm hoping the guy will take my bike plus $500 for that deep freeze, I could really use the raccoons.

What kind of SUV? Want me to take some measurements? I picked up an Aprilia RS50 from a guy who had it in the back of his SUV. The front wheel was off, and the lowers, but it fit... sort of.
