I went to the IMS in Long Beach CA. last sunday, I had signrd up two weeks prior to test ride the RTS, I was scared Shirtless at first when they said we will take you out on the open road at 35 & 55 miles per hr. I mean i had not been on a motorcycle since 1972. And that ended in an accident.

So we go out me and two instructors one in front and one behind and let me tell ya this machine is awesome and I have decided to get one, I have to get rid of a few things but that should not be too difficult.

i went to an authorized dealer motor sports and put down a $1K that they said they would match. However they said that freight and prep was approx $3200 on top of the MSRP. does that sound about right. I showed them another place that did not charge freight and only $360 prep . what have you all been paying (big ears)

BTW this sight is great, i have just started doing alot of reading here. great place. I have to get rid of both of these to get my toy and my wifes car.( a prius) wish me good luck, and is there any wiggle room for negotiating, so far I was getting 10% off accessories and the ipod and leather jacket without having to get the trailler, which I am gonna wait on at first.





both are for sale, i want the can am spyder RTS real bad!

Unless you have to have a NEW one, I'd look at the used market. It's winter in a lot of the country and the market is pretty good. I bought ours used. It was a 2008 w/4160 mile,Corbin bags,seat and shield,Helibars and I-pod sound package...$10,750. If it's got to be new then I might check other dealers and see if they can give a better deal. If the economy is the way it is portrayed, it should be a buyers' market.

It sounds like you were treated like a king!

Many dealers in the middle of the country drop the delivery way down or take it off completely, but you are on the far end of the country, hopefully some out our way will respond. Early on, the delivery and setup were sort of the place where dealers did the "dealer markup" thing

I agree with the previous poster, it's winter in many areas and the deals are out there, with the 2010's appearing, you can find 2009's new with full warranty for a fair price.

How much are you looking for the Solstice :D ?

I am looking to get the 2010 RTS premier edition so there isn't as much wiggle roon negotiating.
Anyhow I double apped (meaning I got a price at a competitor) and they decided to match and not charge so much for freight and PDI

I bought the Solstice in Oct 2007 for 30K and 40K miles later would like 16K for it..............I drive freeway miles for a living and this car has been babied
