Exactly! I still have a book on my bookshelf written by a retired car salesman some 30 years ago. After he gives 120 pages of information that help the buyer get the best deal, he concludes that, ultimately, "A good deal is one in which the seller and the buyer both feel good about it."

Re: Where do people find the cheap bikes?

The idea of cheap bikes and especially cheap bike cannonball rides appeals to me. One was the 555 where they were limited to $500 bikes, 1975 or older, and 500cc or less.
