Unhappy My SCR is up for sale

Selling my SCR
Any interested buyers in the San Francisco Bay Area, hmu!

A list of all the mods and add-ons I have on it is below, as is a full listing of all cosmetic issues. It runs great; it's never given me any issues starting or driving. I am the first and only owner, and the title is clean.

Add-ons included with this sale:
Givi A31 Windscreen
Barkbusters Storm handguards
Headlight grille
Fehling crash bar
Fehling rear rack
Fehling pannier racks (not pictured)
Viking Bags Lamellar Matte Large Hard Motorcycle Saddlebags (not pictured)
Corbin custom 2-up seat (stock flat seat also included with sale)
Reflective wheel rim tape
Koso TNT-B gauge (stock gauge also included with sale)
Denali SoundBomb 120dB horn
CustomLED Magic Strobes Brake Light Flasher module
Ivan's Performance Products ECU upgrade (stock ECU also included with sale)
Tile locator fob

Cosmetic notes:
Something took a rough trip around the rear wheel, and as a result the belt guard and sub-seat plastics are cracked.
The front fender has a scuff.
There are minor scratches on the exhaust.

Afraid so, Antonio.

I was laid off a couple of weeks ago, so Wifey and I made the decision to relocate from SF, the world's most expensive place (or second-most, depending on whose analysis you read) to rent an apartment, to Texas, notably not the world's most expensive rental market. I could spend a small pile of cash transporting the bike to Texas, or I could sell it and receive a slightly larger pile of cash. Sadly, I'm going with the latter, assuming I can find a buyer.

It's yet another reason I'm pi*sed off about the pandemic. If it weren't for [waves hands around], I wouldn't even have to think about this. Vote Biden!

Jeez man - I’m sorry to hear that. All the best with the move. Yes, the pandemic has affected soooooo many people, in massively destructive ways. I think we’ve got a long way to go before we get rid of it too.....if at all.

Why Texas though - that’s quite a change, isn’t it? Is it purely for the lower cost of living?

Not really relevant, but I saw Joe Rogan was relocating there shortly too......I don’t think his move is cash flow-related though.......

Good luck with the sale - you’ll need it, judging by the UK SCR market (“stagnant” may best sum that up......)

Not purely for cost, no. Wifey and I both grew up there, and our respective families are there. My sister just bought a house earlier this year, and I recently learned that her combined mortgage payment + insurance + taxes for a renovated two-bedroom is less than half what we've been paying for a modest one-bedder in SF. That information really changed our perspective on things.

Ha - I can well imagine it did! Quite a saving....

Well, good luck with your endeavours nonetheless.......and if you feel like selling me your Corbin, you’ve got my number!

It sold for roughly half of the sticker price it had when I bought it new. Not so bad for a bike with 18.8k miles, but it also had all my add-ons. I would've liked to sell it for about $1000 more, but ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

If you haven't already moved, you could rent a slightly larger truck (if you are using that mode to transport your belongings) at virtually little additional cost, and have your SCR to tinker with and do those minor repairs that are required to get it back up to snuff. You won't be sorry you did. Also, depending on which part of Texas you move to (hopefully a warm part) you could save a lot of dough on fuel and other transportation costs! The Scramblers after all, do get about 50 mpg . . .
