I was wondering if there were any sites that u guys know of where u can order bikes (so i can just check them out)? I was lookin through a couple cycle magazines the other day at a local Sheetz and noticed a bunch of cycle sites but never wrote them down.

also in the cycle trader i was reading about these deals where they give u the bike for dirt cheap, with helm, gloves and jacket and shipping, for a low cost... should i steer clear of these? How do they get their prices so low? mass quantities? any suggestions please... Im doin some lookin around so that when i complete my msf i know what deals are best.

If you are getting stuff cheaper online, it is because there isnt a brick and mortar shop to back up the sales. Basically, because they dont have to hire salespeople and maintain a store-front they can afford to reduce prices to increase sales and create some stability. So, if you are getting a motorcycle over the internet somehow, its because the business has been de-centralized. A deal is a deal, no need for a retailer anyways :cheers

If it doesnt look like a scam, go for it.

Ya i know what u mean.. The ones im talking about usually take up a whole colored page and are like "600, helmet, gloves, jacket, for blah blah blah", which is usually a grand to 1500 below retail. Never any 500 deals. When a cycle gets shipped is it still in the crate?

There is a place in Corinth Mississippi called www.lakehillmotors.com. I have bought 3 bikes through them and LOVE them! They are great over the phone and they have been in business for 46 years!!!!! You will have to pick up the bike but I drive 800 miles to pick up mine. I saved 3,000.00 for my troubles compared to buying from my local dealership. This is why the manufactureres will not allow them to ship. They will put EVERYBODY out of business.
