Freight charge $850 ??

Isn't 850 bux high for freight? Dealer says he can get what I want from another dealer that dealer is less than 200 miles away. Also, on top of DMV fees is $100 "document" processing????

Me personally I wouldn't pay for freight or document processing. Their making enough selling these things for over 20K if they want to sell the bike, they'll waive it. You could also try going to the dealer that does have it, even if it is a good road trip.

I went to a few different dealerships in the area. The first was unwilling to negotiate on anything. The next, though quite a bit further from where i live was willing to negotiate and drop some of these dealer charges and eventually won my business.

Rent or borrow a trailer. I deal with freight often, $850 for 200 miles is BS.

Call up that dealer 200 miles away, see if they'll make it worth your while to come in. If they throw you a deal, buy it there and ride that bad boy home!

Each dealer sets his own price for set-up. $850 is way to much,IMO

My local is $995 for the big twin touring models.
I bought mine out of state 400 miles away.
In my case it was well worth the trip.

I agree. Make A call to the other dealer.

Be careful, STUPID doesn’t care what direction it comes at you from!!!

Go to the other dealer.... buy the bike.... just think of the goodies them 850 smackers would buy.

Save maybe 15 bucks out of the 850 and go to the original dealer that tried to screw you, and buy a filter for the new bike..... then take the sales guy out to the parking lot and show him your new bike.
