Autotrader, eBay or MCN - which is best for selling?
« on: May 14, 2018, 07:23:11 pm »
Any recommendations before I stick my red K1300S up for sale?

I will pop it on here beforehand, probably later this week, in case anyone is keen.

My bike went through EBay- didn’t get a sniff off AT. Recent car experience is also in favour of eBay
Late emerging biker - took the first bike plunge at 50 with a K1200GT : swapped for a K1300S 9 months in... addictive this biking lark!! 😎 Now had to sell the S... dreaming of a future day when I can return to the fold with a 13R.... Rrrrrrrr....

Gumtree?

FOC!
As I have grown older, I've learned that pleasing everybody is impossible, but pissing everyone off is a piece of cake.

Good point. Only problem is that not many people will look there.
