LoL, 300 miles on the bike is by no means called "learning" - I'm probably guilty myself of making the switch at just under 5k miles and just under 1 full year of ownership, and I'm certain that I could have gained more experience with the 300R. Just venting out on the other guy.
That's a good deal. 300 miles is nothing, the bike has not even made it to its first check up milage. If you have the cash see if he will take $3,000, if he if is firm its still a good price. And if you happen to get bored with the bike at least you did not pay full retail price for a brand new bike like he did because he is losing probably a $1000 or more off what he paid for it.
I'm okay with you viewing it that way.Didn't you also have to sign over your $900 insurance check as part of the deal?... so you actually got something like $1600 for your 300R in trade.

As in snowmobile?That's just the dealer trying to make it seem even better than it is. Basically you save paying the taxes on an additional _______$ based on your trade in. In this case the new motorcycle would have had $2500 off the price that he didn't pay tax on. Still, that's the dealers way of making it seem even better than it is, cause trade in value always sucks. Always.
100% of the time you are better off selling your bike privately and negotiating a good deal on the new sled.
It's just that we have different registration & tax situations depending on which state one lives in. Some states have pretty steep tax rates and registration fees on vehicles. Here in New Mexico were I live, we pay a one time 3% motor vehicle excise tax on new or used vehicle purchases. Yearly registration in NM is about $30 for motorcycles.I get lost on your buying and selling system in the US, here you have the bike with a price, used you haggle the price, pay, walk away with bike, I know theres insurance and road emissions tax £38 a year but that's it.
When I bought mine new I asked the price and that was it road tax included in price agreed, payed, picked it up, just my own insurance to sort.
