Buying a new bike

I expect to get a good bonus at Christmas and a nice raise in January. I've had my red Raider for a while now and want to get a Suzi GSX 650F. Red of course. I've been visiting several dealerships here and in Austin and will be negotiating a price soon. Anyone on here with wholesome and honest advice and comments on this bike? It does fit me well and my BF rides a Suzi. Any other forums I might check for information?

just don't pay sticker. Doesn't matter what they tell you they have room on the price. A few hours of haggling for my new bike saved me over 2 grand. And any promotion they offer, get in writing. I got screwed out of a promotion because I didn't get it in writing.

Thanks for the advice. I think they try to take advantage of women at one of the places I've checked.

don't feel bad, it's their job to do that to everyone, it's how they make money. I'm sure when they see a woman they think "oh i can bs her and she'll pay sticker" but that's all the more reason for you to haggle. I mean when i bought mine they asked for MSRP, and told me MSRP was more than it really was. I googled it right there and informed myself. also if it has a carbon fiber piece, you may be able to have them put the stock piece back on and save some money there, CF is cheaper elsewhere.

those are just tips from my experience, i'm sure there's a few people with much more experience who will chime in

he's got a good point. although a warranty is a good feeling. If you're financing right now, it's easier to get a new bike. If so, Freedom Road Financial is who i used, they've been great so far.
