Not just for Missed Connections between swingers and cannibals, Craigslist is a valuable tool you can use in your next motorcycle purchase. Set by geographic region, Craigslist offers you the opportunity to purchase from your local community and see the motorcycle in person before any cash is exchanged.
With the function of mapping out those offerings within a radius of 5, 10, or more miles, Marketplace offers a lot of the same information that Craigslist does but does so in a more tactical way. You can find motorcycles in your own neighborhood, your city, or the surrounding area, making viewing, mechanical inspections, and test rides simple. It also reduces the chances of tire kickers from all over the state.
One of the oldest used motorcycle classifieds around is Cycle Trader. What started as printed (yes, on real life paper in the real world that someone could touch) has since transformed those same classifieds into Web2.0 formatting for all to peruse.
Horizontally grooved tires can indicate that the seller was fond of burnouts, and other seemingly minor disfiguring like pilling or feathering can tell you that the bike was used at the track. You may still want the motorcycle if you see these things, but they may help you change the price and get the bike for a lower offer. They can also help you get a better idea of what to ask about other potential problems.
A GDN is the basic dealer license that allows a person to buy, sell or exchange the type of used vehicle for which the GDN is issued. GDN licenses are divided into several categories.

If you are going to be buying a new motorcycle you should definitely research it as much as possible that way you are armed with all the information that will keep lots of money in your pocket. Researching what people think about various dealerships will also save a lot of headaches by avoiding the dealerships that have poor customer service.
I have personally purchased every motorcycle I have owned used. In my opinion the thousands of dollars that you will spend by buying a new motorcycle are not worth it, even though you do get the peace of mind of knowing that no one has mistreated the motorcycle. The first place to start now adays is on the internet.
Assuming you have already done the research on picking what motorcycle you want, the next part should be fairly simple. I highly recommend www.craigslist.com especially if you live in the California Bay Area, or some other large city. You can find great deals especially from motivated sellers that just need to get rid of the motorcycle as fast as possible. This usually leads them to lower the price hundreds, if not thousands of dollars!
Whether you're a beginner trying to buy a motorcycle for the first time, or a seasoned rider looking to invest in something completely different, who may still find yourself asking \"how much does a motorcycle cost\" The solution is easy, buy used motorcycles. Here's why.
Examples of some motorcycle dealership fees you can expect to find include 1) doc fees which can range anywhere from $1 to $999 depending on the state where the dealership is located; 2) destination charges that are determined by the value of the bike, almost like a tax; 3) freight, setup fees, and temp tags, which are a state-specific fee, and many more.
When you buy pre-owned, on the other hand, a quality pre-owned motorcycle has already instantly depreciated when it was purchased new. Whether it has two miles or two hundred miles on it, a used motorcycle is solid on its value and does not depreciate the moment you ride away.
When is the best time to buy a motorcycle Whether buying new or used, the colder months are when the best deals can be found. Motorcycle dealerships need to sell excess stock to make room for the new Spring inventory which can mean lower prices.
For those of us looking for a bargain, this is great news as there is serious money to be saved by waiting for the warmer months to end and buying a barely used motorcycle instead of pre-ordering at retail prices from a dealership.
The longer a pre-owned motorcycle sits in the showroom the more it depreciates and the less money the motorcycle makes the company, so if cash flow is tight or sales are slow, dealers will reduce the prices to get them sold while they can still turn a profit.
