I did a similar thing but then decided to stick with the local dealer. In fact they were so nice to me and didn't have the bike I wanted so I asked them to get me one. The owner was very appreciative and beat all the other deals by $300 with no haggling.
Yeah, I sure prefer to build a solid relationship with people doing good business. Sadly, I can't think of a single instance where working with a dealer of any kind (cars or bikes) didn't leave me feeling like I was fighting slimy tactics behind the scenes...for what? A few hundred bucks?
As long as any of the local guys are within $500 of the lowest OTD quote, they will get my business.
