Help Me Find A Bike...please!!!!!!!!!
I am in the market to purchase a '02 R1 or '02 TLR. I will be trading in my '01 R6, and I can't seem to find a good deal. The dealership that I purchased my R6 from won't budge on the price of either of the new bikes. He said, "whenever we take trade-ins, the price of the new bike is always the M.S.R.P." Is this a bunch of shit, or is this common practice among motorcycle dealerhsips? I want to buy a bike within the next two weeks (my birthday), but I refuse to pay the M.S.R.P. for anything. I found a new R1 at a dealership in Chicago for $9,199 OTD, but they want all CASH! I plan on trading in my R6 (many modifications) and paying the difference in cash. I thought about selling my R6 on my own, but my impatience has gotten the best of me, and I want the new bike NOW!!! What should I do? Any suggestions? I am located in St. Louis, MO, so if any of you know of any dealerships with pretty good prices, I am willing to drive the distance.
