I put a deposit down on Saturday for a 2012 T-Bird Storm in Matte Black.

So what was the final price you negotiated?

Got My Wheels

Well, fellas, I got my bike. 2012 Matte Black Thunderbird Storm. It had been awhile since I'd ridden (10+ years), so I was a little nervous picking it up (had a 70 mile ride back and hadn't even taken a test ride; what was I thinking?). But within a couple of stop lights on the way home, I felt at home and was reassured that I made the right purchase.

I got it for $15K including Dresser Bar, Highway Peg Mounts, Adjustable Highway Pegs and Saddle Bags installed. Only the dealer didn't have the accessories in time for when I picked it up (I think he went with the cheap shipping after all of our negotiating), so they'll install the accessories when I go back for my 500-mile service.

Thanks to all of you for helping me take the plunge. I really appreciate it.
