If you like this bike, and feel, like the rest of the responders that the price is REALLY high, here's a suggestion.
If you can, go to the dealer with a stack of $100 bills for the price you want to pay, complete, all fees, registration, sales tax, included. I would think a stack of 50 would be about right. If you can get to the sales manager, tell him you're ready to make the deal RIGHT NOW, and drive it away. No financing, no check with the spouse, no asking questions on the forum.
Worse that can happen is he says no, and you walk away. Actually, they never say "no", they just come back with a different number. Before you walk away, give him your phone number to call you when he's ready to make your deal.
I see other 2003's in Craig's list at better prices, and with more extras. And the difference between one with 30k or 90k mileage, on a GW, is not that much.
