I've owned my 2014 for a little less then a year and I'm thinking it may be time to sell. Not for any other reason other then my kids are beyond keeping me busy. I'm in WI, bought the bike for 8k out the door with the unlimited mileage warranty for 5 years. I am hoping some here would chime in on an asking price? The bike has no damage and has roughly 1800 miles. Only mod I have done is the risers.

Don't know if this helps but i bought a used 2014 deluxe just before Christmas with ~4900 miles with bar risers and frame sliders for $6200...5 yr/unlimited warranty should be worth at least $500 (at least to me), just to give you an idea of what is available and current pricing available.

Sorry to see you potentially go.  Is it a base or deluxe?

It's a base model. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. The wife is telling me to keep, my kids are saying "get a boat".

It's a hard bike to replace in terms of filling so many niche's, give it a long thought before you pull the trigger.

when you feel like getting out on the water. Do the same for a motorhome, if that should ever pop up on your radar. 

 

Keep the bike. You’ll regret ever selling it. Those 1800mi have been miles of enjoyment you can’t get from anything else.

Well, if your are in SE Wisconsin I don't think you will get very much.  There are a few dealerships that always seem to have brand-new old stock base VFRs for around 7k.  There is a red '14 with no miles at Cedar Creek Motorsports in Cedarburg that is asking $6987.  I'm not sure what the warranty is worth, depends if the buyer plans to modify or not.  Not to sound pessimistic, but I would expect you to get about $6k, maybe more if the buyer thinks the warranty is worth it.

Get the boat and keep the bike.  Dutchy is right.  The 8th gen. standard is the best gen. yet (arguably, and I won't) and has shown no chronic electrical problems yet.  Oh, damn, it's 6 mph slower on top end......

If you haven't DON'T! I'm in a similar boat, family 3 kids and one on the way in a few weeks. That idea entered twice and I know I'll regret it if I sell my '14. Even my wife tells me the same thing, listen to the woman.

I bought my '99 new off the showroom floor in December of that year.  It's rarely ridden now and has a prominent place in my garage. Like yours, it's in pristine condition (never ridden in rain, dropped, etc).  Except for the 2 Bros. exhaust and polished wheels, it's bone stock (even the air filter element).    Even though I haven't ridden it much in recent years, I know there's no way I can replace it so it's NFS.  Keep it and remind yourself of the good time you have (will) have with it.  They're only new once.

That's pretty much how mine has been, bought new for a sweet deal last July. Only has 850 miles on it now, hell it still hasn't been registered properly due to moving twice this year. But she sits looking pretty and brings a smile to my face everytime I start it up and look at her. I know at some point I'll spend more time on it, and since they're no longer being sold it's a bit of a collectible ;).
