Seems my newsgroup provider is effed up again. Bestiges!\n\nSo anyway, looked at an ST1300 today. Asked the sales guy why he\nthought this bike was worth 0 more than Blue Book. He told me they\nused NADA for pricing, but after I pointed out some flaws on the bike,\nhe agreed that the price was negotiable. So I told him I still had a\nHarley to look at, but gave him my contact info, came home, and\ngoogled up the NADA value. It's even lower than the Blue Book value,\nunless you include "options" like the hardbags and windscreen that are\nstandard equipment on the bike. So next time I talk to the guy, it\nshould be interesting.\n\nGot a 98 Fat Boy Anniversary Edition to look at hopefully this\nweekend. Does Harley even make a bike that isn't some sort of\nAnniversary Edition any more? Not sure how negotiable his price is,\ncause he's one of the buyers that we supply things for, so I can't\nreally hammer him too much, lest there be workplace repercussions.\n\nAnybody know if the A.E. editions get any sort of engine upgrades, or\nis it all chrome and special decals? A factory 56 HP on a 600lb bike\nseems kinda crappy to me. Yeah yeah, I know, it has torque!\n\nIf I buy a Harley, do I have to spend another 00 in t-shirts and\nbranded sunglasses and freaky ass Rocky Horror Picture show steel toed\nboots? I need to know so I can budget properly.\n\nSide note -\nJerry, I tried to inquire about your predicament today, but the\noffending party had already left for the day. Will try to catch them\nin the smoking area tomorrow. Who the hell do these people think they\nare, leaving 15 minutes earlier than my 15 minutes early!\n\nNow I'm off to send an email to Norway, and see if the dude that\nmassages the newsgroup servers forgot to put in the code to send\nmessages again.\n\nLater!
