That is a nice looking bike, but I don't see much in the way of extras on it. This time of year, prices tend to fall. I am thinking that you can do much better than this one.

Keep looking I think you will find a better deal. I think if you look a little longer you will find exactly what you want.

Like the boys said I would keep searching, there are plenty available and as I always say you will find the one that sings you that "Ride Me" song

Best of luck with the search

I would see if I could get them to drop or reduce the fees the if I were set on getting that one. I think the valves need to be checked at 32,000 and an oil change

@ JINX/FOSSIL92/DETDRBUZZZARD.....Thanks for the replies......I will wait and see on that one. Will also be looking for a well maintained 1500. Hopefully, some will show-up as winter approaches.

That is top dollar for that bike for sure. Our Canadian models sell for that with ABS in "average" condition on our weak (comparatively) dollar. As mentioned, I'd keep looking especially given the season.

grab all the kicks you can baby, you only make this scene once!

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.
