Hello all, new to the board here. Names Chris been riding for about 12 years, last bike was a 97 900RR, sold it 4 years ago for college tuition. Heres the deal just got back from the local honda dealer (Tallahassee, FL) and was approved for the honda card but only got a 7,000 line, no down payment, yeah not quite enough. I dont want to dip into savings for the bike, so Im stuck with the 7k limit for a bike. Does anyone know if there local honda dealer has a 03 or 04 600RR or possibly a 00 or 01 929RR for sale in th 7k range? To use the honda card I have to buy a honda bike from a honda dealer. Needs to be fairly close to me because I dont want to ship the bike. Thanks for your help guys.

Welcome to the site!!!

There is a dealership in GA (I think) that sells new bikes super cheap. Maybe someone else on the board knows of the dealship I'm talking about.

did you try to get approved through Honda financial? I tried the card last year and they turned me down so this year I tried honda financial instead of the card and got approved at a 8.9% rate thats not great but better than the nightmare stories I've heard about that card.

yeah i know the 17% but honda has the great deal 69 per month for the first two years. Both me and the wife are graduating college in August and we are buying a new house, thus cant touch the savings. After that with the new income the bike will be paid off well before the 17% kicks in, and well i dont want to wait a year to buy the bike, I've been without for 4 years. I dont want to go appling for credit all over the place because we are buying a house, and well my income sucks right now so it would take awhie to save the extra 1500 or so needed, damn I'm screwed all around. Anyone know a good way to make a quick 1500 (questionable legal ways will also be considered, LOL)

definitely go through a bank instead. much better interest rates. i got my loan thru safe federal credit union. my interest rate is only 5.9%.

Some say getting $10,000.00 credit through Honda is harder than getting a $100,000.00 home loan. If the dealership really wants to sell you a bike, they'll find a way to get you financed. If they don't want to help you buy the bike you can imagine what the service afterwards will be like.

I was told the Honda card is good towards purchase of new bikes only. Go to your credit union. Mine gave me a 6.25% loan on my used 03. Go get approved for the loan FIRST! Don't make a bad financial decision.

Try and come up with a little more. $7483 is a great deal for an 05...Dip into the savings just a bit. I had a dealer match Southern Hondas price.
I had to drive about 90 miles, but well worth it. Probably too far for you though, just depends on the price I guess. I was prepared to travel much farther If I found the right price. Anyway, If you dont want to travel far, try to get a dealer price match within your surrounding area. In the end it worked for me.

dude, if you're buying a house, you shouldn't be financing a new bike at this point. wait til after the home purchase and buy a left over '05.
