I've been having the same thoughts. Quite a few BMW boxers have turned up over the last year. 3k miles, or just a few hundred in some cases. £7k asking price. You could get a well looked after, or even written off and concours restored (as I did!) for £3-4k and it's just as good except you can still ride it and it will hold its value.
Superdream with a few thousand miles for £3k? Good luck selling that! My last 400 Superdream was £300 and it still wasn't any better than it was in the 80s.
If prices drop and you still have a job you'll be able to get a nice bike. I would get a Commando, a bike that for twenty years has always seemed just beyond what I felt was reasonable - now a long way beyond. Just my view tho - I'm a tightwad.
Thank you for your support...
