Sounds like some of you are getting decent deals - if you don't think so, go to the Harley dealer and see what you will pay for a comparable bike. But that wouldn't be fair to compare the Tbird to an inferior air cooled machine. I was all lined up to buy a factory demo bike that tours around and the magazine writers get to drive - it was black, with 1,100 miles on it and would have been out the door to me for $11,000. But a local dealer in LA snatched it up and the deal fell thru - so to try and make it right the dealer had their own floor demo with 180 miles on it, blue and white bike. They sold it to me for $10K, I wrote them a check out the door for something like $12,193, thanks to our local sales tax of 9.75% Then we just try to hide the other stuff from the wife - you know...stuff...like, helmet, jackets, gloves, boots, windscreen, bags, TORS, and now tires!
