I bought a 2006 Wee last April for about $4600 [9k miles] at a local Harley Dealer. I'd been interested in a Strom, but nobody had any around, and I wasn't about to drive multiple hours to see one. The bike was in top shape, new tires/chain, oil filter, etc, but basically stock. I test rode it for about 1/2 hr, and when I got done, I knew I had to buy it.......
Sure, I could have waited. Maybe I could have driven all day to see a Strom out of State, or maybe I still might be looking to buy one had my Wee not come along when it did.
The thing is, if you take a visit, and decide you really like it - what's a few hundred bux in the long run?, when you can end the search right then and there. That's worth a 'premium' in my book.
FYI, I did sell my previous motorcycle on my own, with satisfying results - the dealers give you nothing for them since they really don't want "old" motorcycles [no sane dealer would buy a 1984 heavily modded + semi-ratty GPz750!].......although dealers find it easier to re-sell cruiser style bikes like your Honda - could be worth your while.
