Default 2011 Triumph Sprint GT 1050

Purchased this bike in March from the original owner with 8000 miles. I bought it for a long street trip this spring. It was an epic trip with some great friends and this was the perfect bike. This triple is an amazing engine especially with the titanium/carbon remus slip on. It currently has 10500 miles and is ready to ride. At 8000 miles I did the following
-new Michelin pilot road 4 tires
-new front brake pads and fluid
-givi rear rack for top case (top case not included)
-low seat (original seat included)
-cell phone ram mount and charger
-oem heated grips
$5000

It's an awesome bike for the money but it just seems like the touring and sport touring market are dead right now. My dad is having the same issue selling a high miles BMW at a dirt cheap price as well.

because it is a Triumph Sport(tour) bike therefore people know nothing about them.
And i'd love to buy it, especially knowing you owned and worked on it for yourself, but i'm having a hard time convincing myself to drop that kind of money. I haven't owned a bike in 9 years now, and I miss it badly, but I can't justify the $. Even with several people telling me i should just do it.
