Anyone got good buying tricks?

I'm starting to shop around for a Boulevard C50. There are five dealers within 50 miles, and I have no problem shopping them all if need be. So far, they're all being pretty stuck up about the whole "new bike, full retail" attitude. I'm playing off each other and getting pretty much nowhere. I've gone from trading my GZ250 to a straight cash deal and still they won't budge.

Of course, they are all more than willing to drop the '04 Volusia 800 to around $6000. But they won't move on the C50s.

Any ideas to try and help?

Nut's correct. I called some ealerships and tried to chew them down to no avail. I took the lowest price I had and called around and they would match it (reluctantly), but they wouldn't beat it.

Bikes are bug toys for people with disposable income, kind of like big-screen tv's or something. For that reason, I suspect they won't budge. They know they've got the goods, and they know we need 'em!

Best bet: call around, know the MSRP, get your own financing, and wait until the prices start to drop this winter.
