Looking at LT
HI, I'm new to the forum. For the last three years I have ridden an '86 goldwing, and have decided it is time for a new bike. After doing much research, I have decided on the K1200LT. At first I thought I would buy a used one, but wanted to see one up close, so went to the dealership. Saw the 08, and decided I want it. The wife gave permission, I was approved for financing, and they had the color I want. I haven't signed anything yet, as I never buy anything big the first day I see it. But I will probably be buying this.
So I have a couple questions about buying the bike. I asked the sales rep what we could about the price, and he said he could drop it to $21,000. What have folks been able to get this bike for? I really hate the idea of paying more a bike than I did my truck. I would really like to get it under $20k.
I asked about getting extras thrown in with the purchase, doesn't sound like they normally do this. All he said was he could give me 10% off accessories. Anyboday been able to do this?
Also, I have been reading about the next generation LT, is this just rumor, or is the bike changing next year?
I still haven't ridden it yet, and won't have the chance to until next Saturday. It is supposed to be in the 20's here all week, but hopefull it will be above freezing next weekend.
