Updated Site Features And Developments
Every podcast episode now has it's own interactive web page like the one you're viewing right now. Comments are enabled. Have at it!
Updating your motorcycle weather forecast preferences would blank them out due to a conflicting form value. That's been fixed. Ride on.
Everything was working fine with maintenance. Well, that is with the exception of actually being able to add a maintenance task! The problem came from the same issue as our weather page and is working/remedied.
Our Instagram account is live! There's no real direction to it. Just pics of this or that or both.
Coming Soon: You'll be able to voice-record your tips, tricks, tutorials and stories directly into your web browser. We'll then transcribe the audio into a published article! Video submissions are also welcome, for which we'll write supporting text (great if you monetize on AdSense).
"Abby" of Chicago, Illinois asks: What price should I sell my 2012 Ducati Monster 796 for if I want to sell it fast without taking a big loss?
Our response: First, find a dealership you're comfortable working with and get their trade-in value on the bike. That figure marks your rock bottom "last resort" should you not get any bites. Next, collect eight more price figures via three specific sources ...
1) The high/low price from Kelly Blue Book
2) Three prices on Craigslist which best reflect the condition of your bike
3) Repeat step 2 but use ebay instead of C-List
Now enter each figure you've collected onto a separate line and use this calculator to average them against one another. The resulting number is worth considering, the lowest value being your "floor". We're confident it'll get snatched up either by a collector or a respectful buyer.
Should you have any motorcycle-pertinent questions you'd like answered, email them via our contact form or by calling (224) 358-3010.
