Default Looking to buy my first cruiser

Looking at cruisers, mainly just Harley and victory. Pretty well narrowed it down to the victory jackpot. I've done a fair amount of research.
Found an 09 all stuck + victory saddle bags for $10500 how's this price sound to everyone else. From what I've seen it seems like a killer deal.

Seems high to me for a 4 year old bike, but not knowing where you live and what the usual price and supply is it might be spot on. You can always offer a lower number and then come up if he's not pleased with that. You didn't state condition or miles on the bike. Give us more to go on.

Whoops I was thinking it while typing just never did.
It is in perfect condition. I'm talking not a single scratch. It has 2800 miles. Guy bought two of them new for him and his wife but his wife never rides it. I tried looking at other ones in the area but all I could find for sale is a bunch of 07s

What did they want for the '07s?

One at the dealer was 9500 and all the ones on Craigslist and other private adds are right at 10k + or - 1k all with more but still decent miles

It appears to me that you're wasting your time here--that should have answered any question you had about value. If you have the cash in hand, I suggest going to the seller and start with a lowball offer, but tell him you are going to pay cash up front and go from there. If you have to finance it, buy a bike you can pay cash for.

Not certain where RICZ post about "paying cash" is coming out of the blue from. You didn't ask anything about financing in this thread. Stating that one MUST ONLY pay cash for a bike is like responding to a tuning question with a recommendation to go with a Corbin seat because they are so nice.... Just doesn't fit in the context.

If it has the color and options you like, buy it...PERIOD! Why should it matter (to RICZ or anyone else online) HOW you pay for it?




It's not just any victory.... It's MY Victory!

I was just butting in with some grandfatherly advice. A motorcycle is a want, not a need and if one continues to fill their lives with wants that they have to mortgage their futures for, then where will the money come from when a real need arises?
My first wife was a deficit spender and kept us constantly in debt. That marriage ended with her taking everything - house too - but leaving me the bills. I was not a high earner then, but managed to pay off those bills and swore to myself I would never go into debt again,except for a house.
I bought only needs for decades, paying cash or check. Yes, there were motorcycles to salve my addiction, but they were limited to used ones that I could write a check for without causing economic damage.
I denied myself a lot of things and luxuries that I wanted but didn't need and eventually I became more and more solvent. Not because of money that was coming in, but money that was not going out. Today I own my home free and clear. I bought my car with cash, the same as my XR. Being solvent is a great feeling as opposed to how I felt as a debtor.
Just some ramblings from an old man trying to be helpful. Sorry.
