I asked if he could move any further to meet my offer which was still $1300 lower for total OTD, his words were, "I'm all in."

Looks like about $2,000 discounted from full list and the usual freight and prep charges.

What do you think? Is there wisdom in trying to further negotiate? We are in the middle of an intense cold spell. the least appealing month, for most people, to buy! Looking for a great deal, plus a good long term relationship for service needs.

I've never understood the need to get every last bit of discount that you can. If you like the bike and want the bike, is it worth all the hassle to save a couple bucks ? Just buy it....
