If you ever have any real interest in that VFR, you'd be surprised....the dealer hasn't taken my bike off the website yet, where it's still listed for $12,900. At the time I finally rode it, the showroom sticker was marked down to $11,900. Honestly made the offer based on some private-party bikes on Cycletrader listed at around 9 grand, figuring they would counter. They just took the offer. In my neck of the woods, if it's not a cruiser (or an ATV), it doesn't sell. This thing sat on their floor for months, and with winter's approach (and the fact nobody bought these in the first place) made them pretty wiling...
There are really some great deals to be had every once in awhile, I found out, by not sharing opinions on motorcycles with the general public.
