As much as it kills me I’m getting rid of the R1, as I’ve hardly used it this summer and with the money I save I want to put it towards our new garden. 

I’ve only ever part ex’d, with bikes, so not 100% sure on the best way to sell it. I suppose auto trader is my go to place, but I was just a bit worried about people wanting to take a test ride. 

Have you guys ever sold privately? Any advice?

Selling privately is a nightmare but it's the way to get the most money, depends what your priority is. I've sold to We Buy Any Bike people who were great but you obviously don't get as much, or I've part-ex'd where you get even less. Is ease your priority or is money?

How much difference are we talking? I reckon I’d get about 6/6.3, private.

To be fair, I had someone phone back and offer me 5. Still less than I wanted, but more than I thought they would offer.

Yeah that's not bad. With things like that, you just have to make sure you're 100% truthful with the condition. I sent them pics of all the scratches, any issues, told them the history etc. Told them that I wasn't interested in being knocked down on price when they arrived and to be fair to them they didn't. 

No point lying about condition of a bike though, just a waste of time.
