Default Cost of CC

i Have been bitten by the Cross country bug.

Anyway I was wondering if anyone has purchased one for less that MSRP. If so how much below. Any discounts on accessories? % off list.

If so which dealer. I am in Indiana. Saw a couple at the Gap and on Cheroahala last week.

My suggestions:
Go to a Fuel-It demo. Find one near you, or in a nearby state. Dealers usually give $1000 off a bike and $1000 in accessories if you buy a bike within 10 days of a demo. I went to 2 demos in SLC, but didn't have enough $ to buy a XC. I do not do payments, gave 'em up for lent. Also, if you buy out-of-state, see if you can buy it sales-tax free, then do whatever is required in your state for registration. I am glad I waited because I like white and the thought of an "improved" trans.

When you buy, negotiate a 15-20% discount on accessories. for 3 months after you buy the bike. Usually a dealer will give 20% of stuff around here. So, buy the bike with less on it than you want, then use the discount to add stuff.

This is sort of a pain to go through, but it saves $ in the long run. Time is money, money is time. If you do the standard american stupid thing of buying when you can't afford it or impulse buying, you pay more IMO. Remember that you are trying (possibly) to do 3 things: 1-get rid of old bike, 2-get new bike at low price, and 3-get financing. These are all seperate deals - don't mix them.

1-If you trade-in a bike, then you will get less for it because the dealer has to do all the crap to sell it, blah, blah, blah.
2-get the best price on the bike using what you can - demos help alot. Do this seperate from any consideration on trades or $. Don't mix 'em. You should be able to get a bike OTD for the list price or close to it - including tax, prep, etc.
3- get your own financing or whatever. Credit union or something will always be less $ than other places. Have your ducks in a row BEFORE you go to buy, whether it is after a demo deal or not. If you have the whole $ bundle all ready and go for no payments, that is your strongest position to have.

Demos are winding down and there will be more in the spring. It would be prudent to wait for 2011 season, save $, - after all, winter is coming soon....

White Bear, Thanks for the heads up on the fuel It program.
You and I think very much alike, I would probably have bought one by now except for buying 3 scooters last year, (worth it because I got to ride with all my kids at once) They are all in their 30's. I haven't borrowed on anything except the house for many years.

My grandma told me a Looooong time ago, if you can't pay cash , you don't need it. (this is from a depression era lady with 5 kids)

It does impress the dealers when you walk in with a wad of cash in hand.

I do disagree with one point, I think I like the blue better. hahahahahaha

Well MaxB-
I think the blue color looks too much like the "other american bike co", if you get my drift. I have seen so many solid colors from the "other american bike co." that I am sick of them. They have some of the weirdest color combos and almost all are instantly identifiable as HD. This turns me off completely.

I don't like black and can't see the reason for charging more $ for something other than black, sounds like a rip-off to me. I think/believe that any color is better than black - especially to be seen by the 2+-ton monsters out there. Black also brings a certain image and caveats that the HD developed - I don't want to go down THAT road. Blue is fine if it makes your day, but it won't make mine (respectfully). If I could think of a way to put pin-stripes or whatever on a blue XC I might consider it, but I still prefer white. White (even pearl white) doesn't show dirt and looks good about 90% of the time. My kind of color.

I sincerely hope you find what you are looking for. Sometimes a little patience pays off, so wait a bit IMO. Be sure you know if you need the regular or tall windshield - or a CeeBaileys will do the job. Keep your cards close to the chest...

No payments? Why that's dang near Un-American!!

Just kiddin' of course. I wish I was as good with a dollar as you two guys. At least my house is paid for, eh.

White is a good color for low maintenance but looks too much like the standard HD color. I'm not kiddin' on this one. There are no less than 5 white Electra Glides in the group of 30 or so I ride with. It's kind of a fluke but there it is.

The candy apple blue I've seen and have painted my own bike's with is awesome but do take a little extra effort to keep it looking its best.

The XC was my first choice but since I already had a touring bike I just wanted a hot rod. I think I would have been happier with a Kingpin in the long run but this JP will do just fine as the hot rod bike I was looking for.

Good luck in your quest. Winter time is the best time to buy a bike. Dec. and Jan are the best months. (if you want the best deal)

I got my new 2011 CC for what they quoted me on a 2010 with the $1000 savings. I also got my accessories for 30% off when I bought mine.

I found a dealer that printed some $ numbers on the internet (Motor-Vation- east coast somewhere):
"showing 2011 models on Monday August 23, Tuesday August 24, and Wednesday August 25. Plus, as an added bonus for demo rides, Victory will also give our customers, who complete a demo ride, a $1,000 coupon to put toward a new purchase of a Victory. Make sure to mark your calendars and stop by Motor-Vation for a demo and a $1,000 coupon."

This adds up, if I have the math correct, to $2000 off a bike. I sent this to a dealer here in Idaho and he has not responded yet. It will be interesting to see the reply. They said they would do better than a Demo Fuel-It deal. A member in Caldwell ID (pdsmith) got -30% off on accesories. I have not heard of any costs ($ charges) on extended warranties.

Apparently, if you work for it, there are some deals out there. I am patient enough to want one of these deals for myself.

Hi, I bought my 2010 Cross Roads from Performance East Inc. 1306 W. Grantham St Goldsboro, NC 27530 this past spring. I wanted the bike in Midnight Cherry and my local dealer had sold out of them. I got the bike for $15,150 out the door and it included the driver and passenger back rest (about $700 in options). I'm not sure why the gave me such a good price and I didn't ask. Apparently thought the list price isn't written in stone at all the dealerships. Good luck in your search. The X Roads is a great bike! - Larry

FWIW*******
I got an answer from Carls Cycles in Boise, ID:

"The Victory Demo day is here Fri October 8th only. It is not on the schedule because we just secured that date with Victory last week. On that day you will receive $1000 towords accessories in addition to any other discount you will receive. In response to the Taller windshield, When you buy the bike you will receive 15% off all accessories at time of purchase. So the retail is $349 and I can give it to you for $299 and yes, then you will have 2 windshields. Along with that , you will be a VIP customer and receive a Gold Card good for 10% off every accessory for one year. ....
The white bike and the blk one are on display on my showroom right now"

The interesting thing is there is a Victory Demo in Boise on 8 Oct, and another one on 9 Oct. in Idaho Falls. It will be interesting to see how these 2 places make their offer. I plan to go to both to do just that. There is a fellow in Alabama who was offered $17000 OTD for a bike and $7000 of accessories for $5400. That sounds like 22-23% discount to me. (this was on thevog.net)

Both Demos are listed on the Vic Demo schedule now.
