I shopped a Stratoliner, Road King, and a T-bird before I came across Vic. I couldn't get any dealers to budge on their price which really surprised me with the Stratoliner because they were not moving. Came across Vic because a lawn mower dealer/ATV dealer near me had a Vic sign and 2 bikes in his tiny shop. Started calling within a 5 hour radius for XR's and got a wide variety of out the door prices (not including tax, tag, title) but most were around 20% off or so including rebates. My next closest dealer had my 2011 so I drove up and expressed my interest. He quoted me a price of $15,800 (extras were hard bags, short shield, engine and bag guards). I nicely said that would not do, had better phone offers (and one was from him but he didn't remember me) and he quickly came to a price close to what I was willing to pay which was about 25% off.
