Were these commemorative plates? Elvis memorial plates? Revolutionary War plates?

I was surrendering my last freedom to poverty/necessity. I had a new horrible job with which I was replacing my then current horrible job. Since a primary function of the new job was the transportation of computer equipment up and down the east coast a motorcycle was no longer suitable as an only mode of conveyance. I went from being that "hardcore guy who rides in the snow" to "that sorry sob in a geo metro"

You didn't read the fine print:

This Suggested Retail Value assumes that the unit has been fully reconditioned and is in excellent condition. Mileage/condition and additional equipment may have a substantial impact on the value shown above. This value also takes into account the dealers' profit, costs for advertising, sales commissions and other costs of doing business. The final sale price will likely be less depending on the unit's actual condition, popularity, type of warranty offered and local market conditions. "

As far as I know, you aren't a dealer, and as it says, 'the final sale price will likely be less'. Just throwing that out there for informational purposes.
... impossible to get that price because of the current spike in used bike prices. I saw a Nighthawk750 go for $1000 over NADA retail last summer in Salt Lake. Just might be difficult depending on the local market and the current demand for the bike. NADA hi retail is about $2300 on the Shadow1100 so that's all a bank will loan for it.

I'd sure like to get $3600 for that rare, 37,000 miles, 2K on rebuilt engine, new battery, good tires, too many accessories to list, clean title in hand, brain fahrt forces sale, 1984 Magna that's in my garage. You're not interested in one of those rare collector's item, classic Magnas are you? Buy it now. This one is hot and won't last.

Perhaps one of you elderly gentlemen can tell me what a "record" is... is that like a back up of your MP3s?

A record can be several things. You're probably thinking of a phonograph record which was a plastic disk played on a phonograph.

But there are other kinds of records. Like that record we made on videotape of you, a large dill pickle and the cuban pool boy last night.
