Check Craigslist. Even check cycle trader, I KNOW I KNOW they rip you off, but there are several decent bikes at dealers close to me (I'm in Panama City) and bikes are expensive as hell down here, even on craigslist.

I know for a fact that it depends on what you are looking at. The new ninja 300's are flying off the shelves so no one will be giving you a deal. But what you can do is start attacking those b/s fees. Stocking, transfer, dealer, those are all garbage. Doc and license fees and tax are the only valid ones if I am correct. And you could maybe even get them to pay the tax by lowering the MSRP by that "small" amount. The bottom line is that they won't sell anything they aren't making money off of so it's a bit of a crap shoot. But if you have the funds than you get peace of mind, possibly some free servicing, and some type of manufacturer's warranty.

There are guys on the 300 forum paying over 7k OTD for that bike. They are going to be depressed in 2 years when they want to sell.

You're incorrect.

The dealers DO have to pay for shipping.

They also occasionally have to pay the OEMs to actually have the bike on the sales floor until it's sold.

They also have to PDI the bike, and the mechanic's time isn't free for them.

All that said you can usually get them to take the cost of those fees off, but that doesn't mean the dealer's not paying them to Kawasaki or whoever they owe the money.
