Carter was the salesman that i used. He is a pretty straight forward guy. I took the demo for a couple of rides, when i returned it on the third time out, i said. " Im really interested in purchasing whats the best price you can give me on a fully loaded model. He quoted a price of $500 dollars cheaper than retail. I then said im ready to put a deposit down, he then dropped the price another 500. He then asked how i was paying and i said i have my own finances in order. He went and talked to bob. BoB a really great guy came from the back and talked to me. My final play was i factored in the fact that i was putting a 500 dollar deposit down and i was paying with my own money. I said most places are willing to bend, he looked with a smerk and said then i want you to have the best deal he asked what they quoted, and the rest was history. Hope this helps.
hmm..I also bought my K1300s from Carter.
This definitely helps. Is your picture up in Bob's website for new bike owners?
If that's your true OTD (meaning including taxes and everything), then that's a great deal for a California bike. We usually always pay more here.....cost of living I guess. Then again, SoCal has a 350+ day per year riding season so I'd say it's worth it
my 2010 that I bought in Korea was $27,000 OTD. Yep. Sold it at a big loss for $18,000....but that more than covered the replacement cost of $16,700 here, so it's not really a loss at all, since I got a new 2012 with heated grips
I just better not have to move back to Korea for work purposes!!!
