R100 GS Rider's Manual, US Models. $? Someone said $90? ;-) Seriously I could not find one anywhere!

Guess you didn't look too far. They're 25 bucks U.S. new at Motobins. Beemrmax, what again was the first price you posted here on your used R100GS manual? Inquiring minds want to know.
Check my first post to this thread, Randy. It was copied and pasted directly from Beemermax's post BEFORE he went back and changed his price, at Tim's behest.

As I found out/it was pointed out. The GSPD Rider's Manual (which is dead mint, btw) is worth more than $20. I should have known, I just could not find another for sale anywhere on the internet, period. Yes, veritable unobtanium.

I'm trying to sell these books at a "fair" price, which means fair to me, and the buyer.

I was contacted by Native/5, who told me in no uncertain terms that "If you have changed the price I am not in for anything". So, there was not even a hint of bargaining or trying to get the book. The conditions to this transactions were outlined in the email I received, not by me. And I might have been agreeable to a very fair price, especially in light of the fact that I made a mistake in the price when I posted it.

Max,

You orginally posted a price of $20. Tim Shepard (bless his black little heart) chimed in to say they were going for $90 retail. If your stated price of $20 is good, I'm in for $25 Pay Pal 'ed to you immediately. If you have changed the price, you have not posted it. If you have changed the price I am not in for anything. You decide.

Regards,

Chris Martin

I would except I don't know what to charge for it, or I think I changed the price. So we just need to figure that out and you can PPal me. Priority Shipping is $5 and can you do a "Gift" personal PPal, no fees.


Thx!
