I would like to bid on e-bay for an 06-07 Gold Wing. I've read up on how the bidding works, but to me , it still doesn't make sense. ( too many beer over the years? ) There is a "buy it now price" , say $15,000, and bidding in increments of $100 , say $12, 500- 12,600etc, and it will say "reserve not met" . Why don't they just post the reserve $,to start the bidding , so people don't waste their time bidding under the reserve price? Plus , I'd hate to think , I missed out on a good gw because my bid was say $ 200 , short of the reserve bid, when I would have gladly thrown in another $200 to get the bike if I had known what the reseve was. Am I missing something?
