Default New Bike Thursday!

Just put my deposit down by phone in Orlando Fl. for a XCT. I live in Jax, and I emailed about 20 dealers with lowest price I had at the time. When I called dealer near me with price, he said " go for it, we can't beat it". Doesn't sound that good to me really, but it is for black 21,275 out the door, 3 yr warranty. I think I want red though, and emailed to see get that color. I like both and was trying to save money but then thought naaah.
I told him to make sure pig tail for tender is attached, that the vent line is routed down toward the shock as some have said otherwise gas smell. He said he has not heard of that but will make sure with tech guys. Anything else you guys/gals can think of that I need to make sure of?
Ain't it exciting!! Feels like it did when my 150 scooter was drop crated at my door. Or when the 260 scooter was bought. Or then the vt1100 shadow spirit. or the bandit 1200, or the vtx 1800. What next!

Once your out on the road, the thoughts of dicking around with sales people indefinitely to save an extra few hundred bucks will have long been forgotten. Time is much better spent from the seat of your Vic.

I'm ok with it. Decided on red and extra 2 yr warranty. total OTD is 22090. Said if i don't have a warranty claim, I can use the $360 for anything in the store. cool.

Congrats on the new ride.

Good luck sleeping tonight. I know I don't get much sleep the night before getting a new bike.

Post some pics when you can.

Not a good deal???? msrp 21,999 - state/count sales tax, what 7%? registration, deliver and setup fees... at least a little profit for company... and prime shopping season in Florida. Hey you probably tip more at a restaurant than the % they are going to make.

How come nobody is ever allowed to make a profit other than the buyers who (want sellers to take losses) in their own businesses? You don't determine what they need to stay alive, they do, which is why I applaud the Jacksonville dealer for telling you to go for it.

I know you want the best price you can get, but come on... if your unhappy with it, WALK.

In the meantime if you do buy it, stop complaining and enjoy the ride.

I"m not complaining much, just said didn't sound that good to me. Based on Ohio offering same bike for about 300 bucks less. It may be a fantastic deal, I don't really know. But I am excited as xxxx to get it tomorrow.

Are you trying to say that you had more than $1,900 in taxes, titles and dealer fees, REALLY? After all, what else could be in OTD figures? I agree with others that quoting OTD is not a good measure as everyone in the world has a different idea of what OTD might actually mean. I do understand that you feel that you got a good deal and thats fine but referencing OTD doesn't really mean anything to anyone here except you. If your trying to say you got a good deal, why not simply quote what they deal actually was (before fees and taxes)?

Either way, enjoy the ride tomorrow!
