Buying can be a good experience,or bad.since this is your first bike it should be a good feeling when riding out the door.I am many motorcycles down the road from the first one,but here are a few tricks I have learned on the way.
Let them know you are gonna buy a bike
That where ever you are gonna buy it,is also gonna be your parts,sevice center
You would like to stay close and deal locally,but
(this is where you have the info on all the bike shops and prices of the bike you want to deal with)
Go to at least a 200 mile radius and get prices out the door,deal with these folks over the phone and let them know your serious.200 miles seems like a long way-not on an afternoon ride
Be confidant and firm in your negotiations letting them know you mean business.
The bike I just bought off of the showroom floor 2 weeks ago,from a large succesful shop,was less the asking price including tax,title etc and I got $300 towards any purchase in the store.
They are STILL making money off of the bike,and also from retail price from the gear.They are in business to make money,I just let them know that they're not gonna get rich in one day
You should be able to get the KLR out the door with firm negotiations for right around the asking price which would include tax,title,etc.
