    Honda CRF250 Rally +++ Reality?

    Hi Guys I have been reading and following this bike for a while now, and it seemed that this next year would be its release date. It is supposed to go into production, but I have not seen anything on Honda's website for the 2017 year models. Here is a YouTube on it. I for one would like to see it happen as I am now thinking of a CRF250L anyway, and this would be just the way I would build it up. Curious as to what you all think it would sell for. My guess is 6 to 7K. OV

    Who has bought a new DR650?

    Hi guys... Ok...I have been looking for a bike for a long time and have settled on getting a DR650. I have noticed that they price out about the same as the DRZ400s, which is weird. I know all the specs but I do not see too many in-stock in dealers. They seem to act as if they are made of gold and don't budge on pricing. Therefore I would like to know if any of you have bought a new one 2016 - 2017 as of late, and if you would be willing to share what you paid. Thanks Old Vagabond

    How to buy a Motorcycle (From a dealer)

    Wow guys...thanks for all the good info.. best comeback I've had on a forum especially on a first post.. Sorry...I gotta go. I'm getting a little misty. (These things really get to me) OV
  8. Hi everyone.. Well I have lurked for long enough and finally decided that as I get closer to getting a bike, I better become a contributing member. This is the only forum I will be on...so what that means is that I respect the information here. So this may be a rather strange first question...but since getting a bike is the first step its what I will go with. I have been car-free for over 5 years and have fallen out of touch buying vehicles...especially new. So I am in need of advice on how to buy a bike from a dealership. I went into a dealership and was greeted by a young kid that did not know a damn thing about selling. Nice kid...but? They went about discounting the bike and wrote up an offer. I was shocked that even though the discount was not that great, that they managed to bump the price up another 2 thousand dollars! I know dealerships do not make a ton of money on a new bike, but I would like to know what fees they tack on are real or total BS. Of course tax has to be there, but I felt that since I was an older guy they were putting the screws to me. I don't know...may be I am wrong. Also, while I am on the subject. I have also been looking at used and I am amazed that people are asking next to new prices for a bike with a lot of miles. This is why I would rather buy new...but maybe the prices seem high because they know about all the "dealer prep" and other fees. Thanks... Old Vagabond
