New guy

Hello all,

I found this awesome forum while looking for some help and thought I would dig my feet in and get to know some cool new people.

Currently do not own a bike just yet but will be buying a 2007 V star 1300 Tourer next month which I have some questions for that I'll address in another post after I'm cleared

I live up in Northern Minnesota and have a lot of beautiful roads just begging to be opened up on once I pick up my ride.

Welcome T-Wolf!

I spend time in The Bemidji/ Cass lake area. There are a ton of great roads up there but I never have the bike with me - just the family

Welcome to the forum! You found the right place. There are a lot of folks here that are happy to help and have an amazing amount of experience. I just bought a vstar 650 a few months ago and this forum has been just great! Good luck with your purchase. Have you already found the bike your looking at or are you just getting started looking?

Yup I have indeed, there is a local Harley shop that has one that was a trade in that I'm eyeballing. Rather than starting a new thread I guess I'll just ask my question here:

The bike is listed for $6,995.00 with 5,795 miles and looks sharp. It comes with a mustang saddle, rider backrest, highway bar, spotlamps, passenger footboards and a luggage rack and is the touring model so has the side bags and bigger windshield. My question involves price haggling. I have zero experience in doing this and was wondering what a good starting price to give them would be. I have cash and can pay in full when I walk in.

Now being that it is a Harley shop I know they want to get this bike out as quick as possible so I would think that I have that to my advantage. I don't want to link directly to the listing as I'm not sure if that is against forum rules but if it's not I'll post for people to examine.

You can post a link as long as you're not worried about someone else here swooping in and grabbing it I lost a strat to Wart that way and a vstar to Corsair that way.

I don't know the 1300 pricing as well as the 1100 and stratoliners, but the price actually sounds pretty good. You can always come in really low around $5k with cash in hand (wave it around so they know you are serious). Then see where they respond.

Like you and Miescha said, it's a HD shop and flash the cash. the worst they can say is no. If they say yes to move it; you win. Go for it.

Offer them 5k. If they don't come down a lot or at all leave your # and walk out. I guarantee you'll get a call back with a lower price than it was when you walked out. Especially at a HD dealer. They don't want that nice star sitting around there making those HDs look bad!
