After 77 bikes you should be telling us how to sell or trade a 6 month to 1 year old bike without losing your @$$. It suprises me that when you were offered $14K that you didn't already know that you would be lowballed; that dealer needs to get at least 10% more than what he/she pays you - anything less isn't worth the hassle!
You could get more out of it if you are willing to wait. But on the other hand the 2012's get released at the end of July. As soon as the 12's hit the dealers the 11's will go on sale. If new 11's cost less that makes your used 11 worth less.
Your bike should be worth $15-16K without a trunk and $16-17K with a trunk. If you added accessories such as CB take 50% off the price off the accessories and add that to your price.
Assuming not everyone is gong to get the demo truck discount and/or the military discount and assuming you have at least 2 accessories start at $17K. Subtract 10% off the total and make $15,300 your asking price when you talk to whomever it was that offered $14K. Do the same math with the exception of subtracting 15% rather than 10% and your minimum should be $14,500. The math could come out differently depending on your accessories.
