When to sell? This year or next?

I have 5 peds and need to get rid of two for space reasons. But then I was thinking, I wonder how much more they will be worth next year? I see puchs being sold on eBay for over 700 bucks now, and those are not even mint ones.

Seems like as the price of gas goes up, so does the resale value of mopeds. Maybe it might be worth it to wait a year for a couple of extra hundred bucks. Anyone else tjonkng this way as well?

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

What will the value of the dollar be in a year? Will you invest the money and how? Will people even have jobs and money to afford a moped once the middle east is on fire and we're all drafted into operation Iranian Freedom?

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

well i beileve that the economy is slowly going back to normal and gas prices are dropping. The national average dropped to 4.11 to day and last time i checked it was 4.32 (a while ago) unless if we get Obama in then gas should raise cuz his tax every thing but tax American companies less well gas comes from not America so its gonna be taxed like crazy

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

zeke, stop listening to rush limbaugh and glenn beck right now.

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

yup. zeke is right, todays drop in average gas down to 4.11 is the first in a large trend of shrinking gas prices.

or

the bush-ster just spent the whole day greenlighting offshore oil drilling.

whichever.

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

I couldn't even make sense of Zeke's post. Y'all must have your decoder rings on.

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

If a depression comes, and no one can afford a moped, they will take it from you, by force, you must be prepared for this, I suggest learning Jujitsu and wear a ghost shirt so no bullets will get you, AND eat lots of bee pollen, it will give you invisibility powers....

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

Gas prices aren't projected to even plateau for over a year, let alone drop. Mopeds like ours however, will not be going up up and away forever. Right now Mopeds are going for top dollar because Joe and Jane SUV are freaking out and looking to buy scooters, and they've forced us into a bidding war. I'm sure i'm not the only one who's paid way too much for a non running ped because the seller had twenty other people begging to buy it.

My point is: next summer there will be even more chinese scooters, some of those companies will have started offering parts, and all those Mopeds will have dirty carbs and be for sale in not running condition again.

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

The only reason for the gas price drop in the past few days was the drop in demand forcasted due to the drop in consumer confidence and the worsening credit crunch here in the US. It is all derived from the performance of the financials and the lack of available credit to the US consumer. People cut back on things...gas being one of them.

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

actually my post is from http://www.barackobama.com ,that he is going to spend a ton. from the news i got that the national average is 4.11 ,and it used to be 4.30 something or other. from his commercial that he will give tax breaks to American companies, thus i infer that he will have to tax none American companies even more for his plans to operate. where r u confused ?

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

You all need to calm down about politics. The next for years will be relatively fine, things will probably get better and people will continue to say they're getting worse, all that's to be determined is who gets to pretend that things are good and thank their candidate and who gets to say that things stink and blame whoever wins. Its all the same. Watch this and have a laugh.

Aw man, the whole formatting changed when I posted.

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

Try this instead.

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

what is it now. even with McCain's tax deductions to the rich, the rich are still gonna give more % of there money than any one else.

also i doubt Obama can do all he plans to do with that little taxing. should we punish the rich for being smart? i beileve not. any one who makes 2.8mill a year deserves to be congratulated for their genius not kicked in the nuts. that would be like say to shaw ok u r the fastest now u have to ride in the back of the pack at all rallies.

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

pfft. i love how you can accurately guess someone's income by hearing where they stand on political issues.

Gotta love Obama's regressive taxation. "Congratulations, you got somewhere in life! Now pay out your ass for every slacker in the country!"

"The government is not there to play Robin Hood."

that's a comfortable opinion to have if you're a Lord. We Serfs would just blow that extra money down at the Mead Hall anyway.

Quatto? I'm a lord? Awesome. Glad I got promoted. I'm no where near rich. Got over 50k in student debt, a whole bunch of other debt, and make under 30k a year. At what point am I going to be making the upper brackets of that chart? Never. But I stand on principle rather than being greedy and wanting a handout that is forced away from others.

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

Mike - I respect your point of view I'm just talking shit 'cause it's a message board.

Re: When to sell? This year or next?

Fuck the rich. Fuck 'em in the nose-hole. The idea that they 'deserve their money because they worked their asses off or they're smart' is a crock of shit. Lots of rich people are rich simply because their parents were rich. They don't 'deserve' that money any more than I deserve to be balding because my father, and my mother's father were balding.

The rarer cases of people who built their wealth rather than being born into it often have the advantages of being white, male, and coming from a middle-class family where they were afforded the opportunities to go to college. The fact is, it's insanely difficult for poor people to break out of the cycle of poverty. It's NOT just an issue of them 'pulling themselves up by their bootstraps,' they have far more obstacles to becoming wealthy than the average middle-class born white male. Oh, and people who've built their own wealth typically also did so at the expense of other people, so it's not really an issue of them figuring out how to make money so much as figuring out how to fuck their brother in the ass and steal his cash.

Capitalism is an economic system based on exploitation and inequality. Oh, and just so you know, I realize that I am unrealistically idealist.

Look up "regressive tax" in a text book or on an internet reference page.
