Now Iíve Done It
« on: January 17, 2021, 01:30:04 am »
I am the proud owner of a 2013 Trophy with 17000 miles. I think I got a good deal.!!!!!

I was headed to Hot Springs Arkansas to look at a 2013 Trophy with 44,000 miles for $5300.  While traveling through Texarkana I decided to stop at the Harley shop.  As fate would have it, they had a 2013 with 17,000 miles and were asking $6600.  I told them of the story of why I was there. The sales manager came by and asked me what it would take for me to buy the bike. I thought what the heck, Iíll put it out there. I told them I was headed to look at a bike and I was a man of my word. I was going to go look at the other bike. He asked if I would give home 5 minutes. I said sure and 1 shot. A few minute later he came back with a folded piece of paper and said "here is the deal".  I opened the paper up and this number was on the paper.......$4900 + ttl.  Had to call the other guy and tell him I wasnít coming and why. He was very gracious.

It was good of you to call the seller of the bike that you were going to look at and let him know what happened. Many people would have blown him off. Welcome to the fold.

Itís the honorable thing to do and how I would want to be treated.
