Well I made my pitch and I think I did ok. Remember I had no clue as to what a good deal was, but all of your help got me thinking. It didn't matter much to me if I had a c50t but I DID like the bags and windshield etc. So fo $8000, I bought a 2007 c50 and the dealer will add extra large bags (not Suzuki),windshield, highway bars, backrest, luggage rack and 15% off accessories for a year. It also includes taxes (damn New York State 8%) reg title etc.
I'm happy as hell so I guess it was worth it. No sense having a midlife crisis if it can't be fun.
Thanks for all the help and I hope to see you on the road,
