**MODS delete if this is "inappropriate, or move if necessary***

Hello,
I'm new here but I'm not...... I first registered in 2003, and the "system" doesn't even remember my email.(I tried the "Forgot your password" thing, and there is no record of my email being registered here...and yes, it's the same email I used back then)

Not sure if this is the right sub forum for this:

I have a bike that I want to sell, and am trying to figure out what it's worth or what I can expect to get. And if it'd be more worth my time to part it out.

Please let me know where I can find this info. or if this is the place.

I don't expect a full appraisal, but, that would be nice..... I know there is a Classified section, and this is not it. I'm just trying to get a feel for what I can expect... I paid $1400 for it in 2007(did I get ripped?)

Thanks for any help/suggestions... you can PM me if that is more appropriate.
