Default 12,000 for used Vegas?

Hi All,
Picking up a 13 Vegas 8ball with 2500 miles looks clean taking a test ride and picking it up tomorrow... maybe. I know there are better deals out there but its have to find them on Guam due to the lack of a dealer here and they would be about 3k over MSRP, considering they wanted 17 for a R1. I guess my question is would you buy a bike you don't want for cheaper and wait 4 years to get the bike you want or just go for it?

Would you please clarify exactly what it is you're asking?

I would not buy a bike I don't want, well, because I don't want it.

Would I spend more $$$ to have a bike now as opposed to waiting 4 years to get one? Yes (even though Guam is, what 12 miles wide by 30 miles long).

Even if by not waiting I would be spending more $$$ to purchase said motorcycle? Yes, as I'd be getting a daily dose of riding therapy those 4 years.

Take the Vegas for a test ride and after your smile dissipates a bit, ask yourself if the smiles are worth the asking price. Good luck.

I would have to ask is there a dealer over there how hard is it to get parts and have some one work on it

John this is how it looks now. The bike came from the states and I think it was only here a year and kept in side the house at that. Corrosion can be bad here due to constant salt spray. After driving it away I am happy with my purchase. That is the Craigslist ad, 2340 miles.

After two weeks on this bike, I have to say it is pretty nice and just wow! The bike looks great, rides great super comfortable, and good power. Glad I got a Vegas instead of a Sporty, the bike really stands out.
