The Motorcycle Market

Just a General question....
I lived in Massachusetts all my life and now live in Houston. Back home you can find bikes in the winter for really cheap. My question is that since you can practically ride year round here do bikes go down in price usually when the temp falls? I am looking to maybe pickup a bike in the Oct-Dec. range so I can maybe cut off 500-1000?

Re: The Motorcycle Market

Drive to Oklahoma, get an 05' model year left over, and practically steal a new bike off their hands. I've heard of $2000-2500 below MSRP
