Anyone got good buying tricks?

1085 Views 13 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  maniacmedia
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?

Wait a year.

Dealers won't budge on an '05 (you are looking at an '05, right?) for just about any street model. Dirt bikes and Quads they usually have deals on, but not the street stuff.

You might have to go out of state to find someone who will work with you. Either pony up the dough now or wait a bit until there are some leftovers.

It is NOTHING like buying a car.

BTW, buying "tricks" could land you in the free clinic, or worse JAIL.
