You have no idea what you are talking about. Maybe you
can't buy a good bike for under $3000 but that doesn't mean that others can't.
Here are three bikes I bought in 2012. I haven't bought any in 2013 because three is enough.
2000 Cagiva Gran Canyon (Ducati 900 engine) 12000 miles, $2000
1997 Kawasaki KLR 650, 10,000 miles, $1500
1994 Ducati 900SS, 15,000 miles, $1550
