About to jump

I've found a new unregistered leftover 2012 I can get for no more than $6995 OTD and maybe slightly less if I can be persuasive enough about the add on fees. Full coverage will cost me $29 a month. I find that hard to pass up. Barring cold feet I'm going tomorrow and write it up.

* Hint *

Don't try to haggle the fees.

Haggle the price of the bike, it is much easier for the sales guy to translate that into front end/ back end costs...

Fees are fees, there is no getting around freight and set up/ documents.

*maybe I work at a stealership*

Jump on it! Many paid around that back in 2008/2009! And believe it was well worth it I might add.

Ride To Live, Live To Ride....no, really!

I purchased my brand new 2012 in May 2013 for $6195. (plus all the add ons. Assembly/set up, freight/transportation, inspection, registration taxes etc)
More or less 7100 out the door. If it is still on their showroom floor, it isn't a high volume mover for them. It does not hurt to ask for a better deal.... All that "other stuff" adds up! Good Luck and enjoy it! It is a blast to ride.

I talked to them again and am getting it for $6900 OTD. There's one more in the area that's $6893 OTD but not the color I like best. For $7 it's a no brainer. I tried to get the first service included but no go. I'm satisfied with $6900 though. I call in the morning to verify/remind them and they'll put it into make ready. I'll go tomorrow afternoon to get it.

That's a good deal OTD! Now the fun starts. Riding it and making it "your own". Have fun!
