Bizarre.

Yeah it's actually pretty crazy in how just the $5 posting fee has pretty much crushed the posting of motocycles for sale.. Dirt Cheap and weeds out those douche bags that posts the same item up like 5 times like they use to do everyday.

Craigslist is still by far the best search engine for buyers, which should mean something to sellers. Sold three bikes within the last year, all listed on craigslist, FB, and Barf. Two sold on craigslist and one from FB.

Just my experience and opinion.

I've had pretty good luck on FB marketplace, you just need to filter listings to local pickup only. FB Marketplace doesn't allow for lengthy text descriptions so follow-up communication is usually a a necessity in comparison to the cl format.
The entire supply chain is mucked up. Fewer new bikes means fewer used bikes for sale. I've been waiting months for a new bike from the dealer, they just don't have them.
