Best time to buy a bike...

Hey folks, I was just wondering is their a certain time period (winter,summer, before summer etc.) when dealers are willing to negotiate and give you a best price.

Best Time to buy a motorcycle is when you have the money to spend in your pocket, and you find the bike that moves your soul.

Motorcycles and auto's are NOT investments.

They depreciate about as fast a freshly cut flowers, and will devalue your dollar spent about as fast as going to a titty bar every weekend. Dealers will nickel and dime you and have no guilt about doing so, just like the pole dancer trying to get you to buy them drinks. Dont fall for it...

But, find the bike you want... not the bike the dealer just wants you to have.

Motorcycling in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect.
