Default Selling stuff

I am about to buy a new DL1000. They want me to buy the side and rear bags. I don't really want to spend the money. The dealer recommended that I sell them.

Do you guys have a thread for selling stuff?
Thanks.

Default sorry

just found your sales section that requires several posts to be able to sell. I am NOT joining to sell. I was a member of my last bike's forum - Honda Shadow. I am a reformed cruiser owner. I realize that is not my riding style and have seen the light.

I look forward to learning tons about my new bike here. I read all the advice on the model here before deciding to buy one. Your forum is VERY helpful.

Are you saying they won't sell you the bike without the luggage?

Default bags

Yes, they are pushing back saying they can't sell it without the bags. I am going in today to negotiate, but wanted to be fully informed on how easy it is to sell the bags.

Most bags sell pretty easily, the exception being the OEM Suzuki bags. They don't go well. The mounting hardware replaces the basic luggage rack. Also, they are flimsier and more expensive than after market stuff.

Default bags

good to know. That's what these are - OEM. So I guess I should push back on getting them with the view to unloading them.

They are the hard bags.

The bags are nice (but not at the OEM price), unless you have another set in mind. Tell them you'll pay 1/2 price for the bags, cause you didn't want them anyway or you'll shop elsewhere. When I bought mine, they wouldn't deal on the MSRP price so I had them throw in the bags and trunk free to close the deal.

I just looked at the Suzuki web page and you must be buying the Adventure model that has the luggage as standard. I didn't know they offered this option on the 1000.

I really doubt the dealer is going to sell the bike without the luggage, if he does, he will have to credit you and then try to sell it himself, too much hassle.

I'm sure you know this but Suzuki does offer the bike without the luggage, although it looks like only in red, not the black that I presume you want. Kinda lame on their part if you ask me.

EXACTLY. They only have the non-adventure in red, which I don't want.

They say that the bags "retail" for $1400 and that I could sell them for $700. I would do that if I thought it would be easy, but like the dealer, I don't want the hassle either.
