My friends and I are looking to buy some new R1's - 3 or 4 of them to be exact. We truly HATE the dealers in my area - Aside from the TOTALLY incompetent mechanics, thier "New York Area" pricing is what I would call criminal.

We would be willing to travel a short distance for a dealer with a good rep and even better customer service. Good prices wouldn't hurt either...

Please let me know where in the NY/NJ/PA area (maybe even a little further if the price is right) you guys recommend.

Thanks,

MJB

P.S> After I get the new R1, I'll be selling my '03 Blk/Flames if anyone is interested. Totally stock with the exception of CustomLED.com taillight...NOT A SCRATCH - NEVER seen water.

I wish I could help you out. I purchased my '04 from Wheelaway in Fulton, NY, just north of Syracuse. I put a down payment on my bike in sept '03 and the salesman said he would work with me on the price. When the time came he didn't do squat for me and charged me full everything, paid $11,450. Had I known that I would have just purchased the bike from dealer in Syracuse that is notorious for charging list and saved myself the hour drive north.
Good Luck

My dealer in longIsland is doin the same thing. I put a down payment for 10 k and now I dont have a bike bc their selling them for over 11k. They are scumbags in fulton, a friend try to buy a dirtbike and a snowmobile and they told him they wouldnt drop the price at all.

Purchased mine at Chenango Import Motors in Yorkville. Thats in the Utica / Central NY area. I paid 10437 OTD. PM me if you want me to get you in touch with the head salesman. If you are putting down for 3 bikes I am sure he will work with you. I know him pretty well and he's a good honest salesman.

My dealer might be a haul, but the customer service is well worth it. They are located about 25 minutes east of Hartford CT in a small town called Columbia.

You might try Cycle Word in Cherry Hill, NJ. They're a big dealership and they seem pretty down-to-earth. Right on Rt. 70 heading towards Philadelphia. They've always got a ton of new bikes on the showroom floor.
I hate cocky dealers, too! Of course many times, it's the guys behind the parts counter that think they're king shit..but I"ll tell ya...they ain't jack, man. If they come across with an attitude to me..I go get the owner and say F%#k you..you just lost a sale. Then I tell them that the cocky mother f'er behind the counter is what lost his sale. Don't tolerate it, dude..you're the one with the money..you're in charge. Too bad we can't just buy these bikes straight from the factory and save about $3,000, instead of dealing with these asshole pukes with tough-guy attitudes. (like I don't need your money, I could care less if you bought a bike)..it's sad, I've been to many dealers and I only know of like 1 or 2 that are down to earth and half-way honest.
Good luck with your R1 purchase.

Haha...That picture was taken the day after I got the bike. CustomLED tail went on about a month or two later. (I thought someone would catch that. You guys didn't let me down)

Thanks for all the responses...I'll let you know what they do for us.

Technically, mines not OTD, I am not paying CT sales tax as I live in MA so my $10,200 price is before tax.
