Did you try searching at cycletrader.com? There were a few deals on the eastern end of the state that were pretty good. I'm not near you, but used cycletrader to help me get "a deal" here near DC. I don't know if I got a great deal or not, but I got out the door 2 weeks ago for $7625 including tax, title, 2 yr plates, doc fee, shipping and handling, the washing fee, the charge to put gas in it, air in the tires,... I basicall went in and haggled for a while using the docs I had, they came back with their lowest offer and I said thanks but no thanks and walked out. By the time I drove home, there was a message on my answering machine with a lower offer. I kind of wanted to buy locally (to support my local dealer) and figured he wasn't going any lower since I was no longer in the store and had 3 other dealers within 30 miles to choose from. I might have been able to talk another dealer a few hundred lower, but feel pretty good about keeping a local guy in business. That way they will be there when I need service (if I can't figure it out from using the manual.) The sales guy couldn't believe the deal that the owner let me have, at least that is what he keeps telling me everytime I go in there to use my 15% off new buyer's discount.
