Either do that (keep it) or donate it to a good charity and take a nice writeoff.
I've kept my old bike from 1990 something... it's gone through a number of changes but is now a commuter bike and when it rains, I have no problem riding it. Something to be said about having a nice, old reliable bike hanging around.
BTW if your reserve was more than $200 - 300, than you were asking too much... but you knew that... take the XTR off and out on something older/cheaper and sell the whole bike for $200 and then sell the XTR...
