The 10 year rule is particularly hard to understand when you consider that an 88 GL1500 is very little different from one made in the last year of production.
Are those dealers SELLING used bikes older than their 10 year rule. ALmost certainly yes.
I also won't patronize a dealer that won't support their products.
A more reasonable limitiation would be 20 or 25 years which is when bikes officially become "vintage".
