  • An 08 Roadie and I ain't telling you

    I spotted this one tonight, so I'll be giving them a call in the morning. It's an 08 S model with 33k and a price that's hard to believe......we'll see it goes.

    Well, at least let us know after the fact. Besides, if it's close enough for you to consider, it's probably not close enough for anyone else. Good Luck.

          I've always preferred carbureted models for their simplicity, but in this instance I'll just have consul myself.

          I have to think that some poor bastard lost his ass on a trade-in buying one of those shiny Eluder's sitting on the floor.

                UPDATE: I just don't believe how scum baggery some dealers are. After multiple calls and days of screwing around the prick tells me this morning the bike is already SOLD! I'm still shaking my head over the whole deal and thoroughly disgusted at how dishonest the piece of shit was in dealing with me.

                  Maybe an insider buy!

                    That's exactly what he told me...that one of the employee's was working on a deal and it went to him. Still he could have been up front with me instead of jerking me around for two days, not answering my calls and then not getting back to me in a timely manner as he promised. And then he pulls that old BS of "well since that one is sold we've got some other bikes you might be interested in". Like I'd ever do business with those F*****ers again.

                    If you put a deposit down the bike should legally be yours pending payment on the balance.
                    With no deposit placed, in-store purchases take precedence in most states by law.

                    Did you give them a couple hundred on a CC over the phone?
                    We do that @ RRPS & that gives you up to 10 days to get your finances in order to complete the sale.
                    Cancelling a sale after a deposit usually doesn't get your money back from a dealer since they've been turning away other interested customers while the buyer decides whether they are going to finalize the sale or not.
                    @ Rock River we do issue a store credit in that case so you can still buy something else like gear, since the CC transaction costs us 3% whether we're taking or giving money back (total 6% loss on a no-sale).

                      I would have done exactly that during my first call, but before I committed to a "sight unseen" purchase over the phone I asked him to verify personally the condition of the metal and paint. The photos posted weren't of high enough quality for me to determine that for myself and at the time he seemed eager to please and promised to get back to me in ten minutes. Obviously that didn't happen and it just went downhill from there with BS excuses and delaying tactics until finally this morning he drops the bomb on me. Not a happy camper right now.

                      Can't say I blame you. You ought to post something on Yelp about those guys.

                    So you are going to give us the name of the shop so we can avoid it FOREVER, right?
                    Go ahead, I dare ya.

                      Oh I've got no problem telling the world to never darken their door cause this was pure Bullshit. I guess all the one star reviews should have been warning to me.

                        I know these guys, they are a big store, maybe a call to the store manager, or owner is in order, they hold a lot of motorcycle shows, sponsor ride's, they are big here in the Portland metro. Bob Lamphere's Beaverton Motorcycle, is the name of the mother ship.

                        It's possible that in a big operation the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing...I get that, but if you have an internal deal happening on a bike why not pull it off the site, or at the very least let the salesmen know what's happening? If the sale to their employee is confirmed as I was eventually told why not then pull it off the site? I'm sending my buddy over there today to see if it's still on the floor and if it is he has my permission to buy it on the spot.

                      The bastards still have it on the site!

                        Yep, and that's why I have friend of mine stopping by the store today to see if it's still on the floor with a For Sale sign on it. If it is he has my permission to write them a check right then and there and load it up in his truck.

                        If you do you'll have to dig your way to the store.
                        We've had almost 2 feet of snow hit various parts of WI in the past few days.

                        After a day or three they pulled the ad off their site, so it's gone for good. Missed out on a hell of a deal there, so it's back to the grind scrounging through CL ads as well as Face Book.

                        Oh well, the deals are out there, that's for sure. They show up here often enough!
