@dot_dash -

In both instances the shipper was found and provided by the dealer....no issues with delivery. My Wee came on a brand new landscape trailer minutes ahead of a massive rain front....literally took bike off trailer, started, shut off and wheeled to my garage as the skies opened up. Think it may have been the dealer's college-aged kid who brought my bike here, lol. My wife's came in a Mercedes Hi-Top van and had zero issues. I would not hesitate to ship a bike as there is insurance for that and there is a vested interest in having you receive it without issue.
I think you could get some quotes via the web but would try to make it a part of the sale so the dealer is the one to make arrangements and deal with shipper, etc. Also, then your ownership would actually begin on delivery.
Hope it works out for you...the Wee is a proven platform with tons of support from the rider community as well as from the accessories world.

I hear you Plateau. I've contacted them and asked for such. The added accessories, and the clean appearance, are what's really pushing this bike.

Coach -- I've seen that one and was actually seriously considering it because the price on CycleTrader is $4,499. Las Vegas is even further than Mississippi though and the cost is just too much I fear. Additionally, I'm too much of a sucker for that yellow/gold XT.

I have a feeling I'll be pursuing shipping options and not trying to make the trip back. More crunching to do...

I'll keep everyone updated. Thanks and cheers.

@K9\ Wee -- I hear you. Unfortunately, the dealer in MS doesn't do shipping anymore. I have a listing on uShip though.

Still waiting to hear from MS dealer about finance options...

Was hoping for some opinions on something else though...

Dealer near me, in state, has a 2016 new old-stock. They said they can OTD at $7350 but I think I could probably get them to go even lower. They've already mentioned they have only 2 left that they're trying to move.

Should I investigate more on this? Initially, I was looking at new cause I like the Gen3 look with 2017/18/19. Now, I'm not sure a 2016 model would be worth the hefty price tag just for new status. What could I expect to negotiate down to? Would $6300 be unreasonable offer from me?

Have you seen 2009 in For Sale section here? Perhaps you can get it for $3000 with 1/3 of the mileage of the one you found.

Definitely looks good, I'd be interested. Can anyone chime in about the CHEC indicator on gauge? Something to worry about?

Chec indicator comes on when key is turned on and sidestand is down with bike in gear or if the kill switch is not in the run position. Nothing to worry about...I saw that ad...close enough to go get yourself! Jump on that one, lol

Gotcha, I wasnt sure if it was part of the ignition sequence or maintenance related. Yeah I'm definitely considering it. The mileage is very nice.

Bummer... I don't have sufficient access to For Sale yet in order to post and say that I'm PMing the seller...

Sorry for spam...

Also frustrating: Tried to send PM twice to the seller but don't see any sent items in my profile history. Have no idea if they're receiving them..
