Need some K1200LT purchase advice

Test drove a 2005 K1200LT yesterday and am sold on this wonderful machine. Best ride I've ever had in my life!
Found a couple of deals, but don't know what most of you find are the most useful.

1) One has Navigator 2 system, alarm-locking sysyem, Convenience package. 9,000 miles for $15,000. Graphite

2) Other one has intercom system, 6-cd changer, Convenience package. 34,000 miles for $14,000. Blue (color I really want)

I don't know how much I would use the intercom system, but does it tie in all communications?


Thanks and confused.....

Yes.

Personally, I'd get the color you want. With the 1k diff in price you could buy a good GPS system. I'd try talking them down a bit more on the 34k mile one...Just point out the difference in mileage and the small diff. in price they are asking.

Is this at Blue Moon?

No, Nice people but Blue Moon seemed to be too tight on dealing. I have a Honda trade-in and found another dealership would give me more for my present bike.

Thanks for your input.

Yeah, from what I've heard Blue Moon is kinda up tight.
Also check cycletrader.com, there were 2 bikes in Cummings and one in Atlanta for sale listed there. I got mine through them, from a guy in..Atlanta and it is blue.

Thanks for your input so far......I tried to sell my present bike but decided to just trade it. The dealer I found in Florida so far will give me a fair deal. They do have a pretty good selection.

Deals

There's was a blue '06 on Craig's list in Oregon with under 8K miles that was listed for $13.5. The question is whither you want to purchase out of state? If so, go North... this is the time of year to buy...
You should be able to ship a bike to FL for less than $1K
