Are KLRs really this much more expensive in Canada?
I've been monitoring prices on Kijiji (Canadian craigslist, but better), and comparing them to prices I see on forums like this or elsewhere on the net. The prices here seem significantly higher. I'm used to paying more than people down south, but it seems on average they are at least $1k more here. I know this is probably not a good time to buy, being around the beginning of summer and all, but I wish I could get a deal close to what I see others paying. Maybe it should be expected, since pretty much everything here is 20-30% more expensive.
Prices around here seem to range from $3000 for 50k+km, to $4500 for 10k+.
I would post some of the bikes I'm considering, but I've been nailed by that before from people grabbing deals after I post them. I would really appreciate it if someone could PM me to offer advice on a couple I'm considering.
I guess my big questions are: how many clicks are too many, how to tell if a bike has been properly maintained, and what kind of things will bite me in the ass for not looking close enough and how much that could cost me.
I'm looking for one that could eventually do a cross Canada trip.
