Used Bike to Used Car Prices.

I didn't know where to post this so Foo gets the first look. Pretty interesting graph. I wonder if it continues to be true if other areas are analyzed.

That Seattle car price must be net of diesels (for bio- conversion)

Only F250s? Its much more satisfying - the screams, that is - when you crush their vertebrae with jacked-up dually F350.

Between the F150s, F250s, and F350s, I'm sure it averages out to somewhere around F275 or so. I rounded.
