Finally, I don't know of any state that will refund your money in your home state if you spent more for sales tax out of state. If the tax you paid out of state is more than the amount you owe in-state, you're SOL.

In general, the states where it makes sense to do fly/buy deals are those that charge little/no TTL when you buy the bike. I live in WA, but have bought in TX a couple times and it works out well - I usually pay $100 or so for temp tags and doc fees, but that's it. When I get home and register the vehicle, then I get reamed for the nearly-10% home sales tax.

I love fly/buy deals. You get to do a one-way long tour and really get to know your bike on the way home. Total immersion in the new bike experience.

Talked with my man at Honda today about this bike. He said that the biggest problem might be availability. They ordered 3 of the CB1000R (naked bike) last year for this year.
Never got one. "If we cant get one and we are the 5th largest Honda dealer..how many could have been sold?"
Plus the owner has dibs on the first one that rolls in ..so hard to say just how many they will get.
He did think that the 500's would be the shit this year.

Would you mind disclosing the dealer's name and web site or contact info? Thanks.

Thanks (what is your name, anyway?). I'll file this away till next spring. I'm going to give my local dealer a shot at my business first and I need to sit on & ride the bike to make sure it will fit me (6'4" 34" inseam).

Hi Jimmy, Thanks. Good point on not waiting. Deposits are always refundable, at least here in NM.

For 10k couldn't you get a nice CBX and have something that really is a classic and will hold it's value if not appreciate?

As a 1979 CBX owner I feel I'm in a good position to comment.

You certainly could do what you're saying and you're right that it will hold its value and probably appreciate if you take care of it. But owning a 33-yo vehicle is nothing like owning a new vehicle. The older bike requires a lot more maintenance, is much less reliable, and has generally antiquated brakes, suspension, tire specs, etc. Six carbs vs. modern electronic fuel-injection? I could go on and on but you get the drift.

And if you have a really nice CBX, you probably don't want to start putting huge miles on it, both because of the repair costs and because it hurts its value. And getting full value insurance for a nice classic is pretty tricky. If you crash it, good luck getting your local Honda dealer to fix it. Actually, finding anyone who will work on these bikes is a bit of a trick in itself. You really need to be your own mechanic.

It's like comparing a 1967 Camaro to a 2013. The old one is cool as hell, but it just doesn't serve the same mission.

Yes, yes, there's always going to be a used bike that's a better deal than a new one.

Bingo, that would be the retro thing in a nutshell. Even if you own classic bikes you don't necessarily want to deal with them on a daily basis nor run the risk of diminishing their value thru constant use. Jumping off a T140 and on to a Street Triple doesn't feel quite right but a T100 might. 'Classic lines with modern reliabilty, parts, and support. It worked for the Hinkley Bonnies, more than likely it will work for the new CB1100 as well.
