Other than being patient, any tips?

30 + vehicles & your the one asking for tips ?

Everything in life is up for Barter..... ,
As far as bike just find someone who bought it put 500 miles in it then saw that ride2die site made me watch earlier and buy at a reduced rate

Being I was in retail sales for 7 years I didnt make money of the sale of the item I actually had it worked out that I made commision off the interest
So I got the best deal for teh client and made the facilty take the loss somewhat....... So glad I dont do that anymore fyi

always always barter,
you're not their to make friends and his new kawasuzhonyam is no better than the next dealers!!
the 250/500/750/1000+ dollars you save are alot better for your health in your account than his!!!

Mudbug was a rareity in my car hunting experience, his first price was always fair and realistic imo but he stood alone in this

If your goal is $7000, don't pay a penny more. You will get that bike for $7000 OTD.



This is why I hate dealerships

he got a good deal and bought from me yesterday


but I agree with everyone since I am on the fence... i personally don't make commission, but have in the past...

I know that salesman are there to work to support their families... and buyers want the best deal available.... not everyone wants to meet in the middle for the thought that they are 'losing out' on the deal...

but there will ALWAYS be middle ground somewhere, you just have to take the time to find it
