    Just out of curiosity why do some of you call dealerships stealerships? Let me guess you think they are making a killing right.......

    Doesn't matter to me how much they're making on the sale of the vehicle - I just regret paying new price (no matter how much I talked them down) for a vehicle.

    Why do you regret it? you know that no one else has had a chance to do any premature wear to it. Plus you should have the pride in having the money to buy new....

    Re: Where did you find your bike??

    Initially walked into the dealer**** (no I didn't misspell, they were that bad) to look at Suzuki's, since that is what most my family swears by, and sat on a leftover 2009 blue FZ6 next to the SV650 I was looking at. I instantly fell in love with the ergonomics, comfort and naked street bike look. 8 days and 4 dealerships later I go back, with the wifey's blessing, and buy the same blue FZ6. It was a bigger pain in the butt then buying a car, but, I'm loving every minute on my bike.

    Re: Where did you find your bike??

    Bought mine in October 2010, pretty much the end of the riding season here in Wisconsin.. I was browsing on Craigslist and came across a 2007. Fast Red. with 5800 Miles. Guy was asking $4000. He said he was selling because the baby seat wouldn't fit. Only thing, the bike was two hours away up north. So I texted him. He said he still had it. I texted back $3400??? He texted me $3600?? I replied $3500. He texted me: "when u commin' to get er?" Drove up there that Saturday with my brother paid the man $3500 cash and rode her back home. Not one regret.

    Tiger,
    Was that bike, by chance, in Reedsburg?? Back before you bought yours, I was looking at one (red) in Reedsburg, and also one up by Rhinelander.. I ended up buying mine in West Bend...

    No, I bought mine in Appleton. She was MINT!!!. I think It was the guys first bike and you could tell he really took good care of her. Had all the dealer service receipts, original sales brochure and manual. did u buy yours from Road track and trail by any chance?

    Nope.. West Bend, not Big Bend.. I did stop in there and the other 2 big used bike places when I was shopping, though..

    I also looked at one at Vetesniks in Madison.. They wanted big money for a used one that had been down on both sides.. I bought mine from a private party that had it on CL..

    Yep thats the way to go bro. The dealers in Madison are RIDICULOUS!!! Have you been to Engelhart?? The only thing I buy from that place is oil and some OEM parts.

    I also had kind of a bad experience with Road Track And Trail. They had a Red 2007 for sale with 2500 miles. Called them and asked if they would take my FZ1 on trade plus some cash. guy said sure just ride it down there. another two hour ride. im walking out the door and he call me and says the bike isn't running and needs a starter, he would call me back when it's fixed. Never herd from him again. Just my experience. though. I've herd a lot of good things about them.

    Yep.. There's a serious shortage of good dealerships.. I've been wandering in Englefarts for about 20 years.. I bought an air filter for my old Wing there.. That's it.. I've always felt better buying slightly used privately.. At least you can get a feel for how the bike was treated when you talk to the owner in person..
