2019 Grand American Blue

I went on BMW and customized my own bike. the price came out too $30,422


I emailed some dealers and depending what they had there bikes prices at one was 29k other was 28k


after tax title fees the OTD prices was 30 to 31k. They seem to stick to the MSRP like stone and well as the parts I want in the bike.



My questions is ....Can there be a little bit of wiggle room? I don't want to insult them with a low offer. But I would like to keep it under 30k without loosing some nice features on my bike.


Without the accessories the bike OTD is 29K but when I add the stuff I want its just too much,. I love the bike but I also would love some cash left over in my bank account. Any thoughts?

Hhahahahaahaha

You already know the answer to this sir.

There is thy gold, worse poison to men's souls,
Doing more murders in this loathsome world,
Than these poor compounds that thou mayst not sell.
I sell thee poison; thou hast sold me none.

There is no wiggle room with these bikes nor with their pimps when you are trying to purchase one. Only thing you can count on is, it is money well spent. Just tell her it's an investment in your collective future.

Are you sure? You're not very optimistic, sir

You could save buying used but you may not get exactly what you want. Without question the used route is a big savings....then again?

My 18 B had a sticker on it for 27K. I was trading a 18 loaded Yamaha Star Venture towards the B. One dealer wanted 12K and the Yamaha, another dealer made the deal for Yamaha and 4K. The actual cost for the B was 24.5K. So there's plenty of wiggle room you just have to have an attitude of here's me deal take it or leave it. I live in the same area as you wizard .....hint ... hint !!!

Curious; why did you trade an 18 venture for your B?

I assume that was the all new touring bike from Yamaha? I find that bike interesting. Totally different than the B but seems to be a great touring bike.

If you would accept a new 2018 GA in black with ALL available options to include forged wheels it can be yours for less than $21,000 at Powersports/Hurst, Texas. The only 'accessories' I would add were it mine would be passenger armrests and passenger floorboards along with Suburban Machinery rider footpeg lowering kit.

Hope this helps a little.
