Need advice. What is a fair price to ask for my bike? It is a 2006 spirit 1100 with a new seat (memory foam ) with 3500 miles. It is completely stock , drives and runs perfect. I have never sold a bike so don't know a realistic price. Comes with a new (never installed) Viking bags, XXL riding jacket with all the hard skid plates on back and joints, a black bag with 5 helmets. The only damage is shown on one of the pictures. It happened with the original owner so I don't know the story. Any advice would be appreciated.

I usually take Kelley Blue Book and NADA values into consideration for both buying and selling bikes. I have found NADA values a little less with bikes compared to Kelley Blue Book while the opposite is true for cars.
If it wasn't for the dent in the tank I would say that you would get the top Book value out of this because of the low mileage. But dents and scratches can affect value considerably.
Still, it is a nice bike and otherwise looks quite clean. I would think that you should have no trouble getting around $2,600 and maybe as much as $3,000 for it.
This is all just my opinion. Good luck with your sale.
Tank dent, probably laid down, but if that's the only damage and the bike runs well and goes straight, not a big deal. I'm in Arizona so used bikes are readily available everywhere, might skew the market a bit, but that year and miles, I'd put it up 3k obo. I bought my 99 1100 for 2300 and it had 23k miles so 3k is reasonable though some people may try to deal down because of the dent.
NADA's value is less because kbb motorcycle value is dealership value only
Ya, it's kind of funny because NADA is a dealer book (National Automobile Dealers Association).
Around here if a bike is clean and low miles it usually goes for around Kelley Blue Book retail value. I imagine other places where bikes are ridden year round and have higher miles that they would probably not sell for as much.
I got mine for $2,400. It's a 98 shadow spirit 1100.
I agree with about $3,000 obo. I would list it for $3,200 and let them haggle you to a price between $2600-$2900
