That's the problem right there, at least in my area. I am trying to find out why it's cheaper to have it shipped from the northeast than buying locally, and my best guess is that their riding season is coming to an end, whereas locally we can still ride, so they overprice them.
I hope you find one soon, within your budget, but I can tell you that in my experience, I saved at least $1000 buying somewhere else and having it shipped. Granted, I still don't have it, but it should be here in a couple of days. Best wishes!
Look on eBay and Craigslist.
Demand for these are so high the chance of getting one for $4500 is pretty slim. Keep a vigil and I'm sure you'll find. Also watch this site. Mine may be coming up for sale soon. I haven't decided for sure yet or not though.

I've been on Craigs/ebay for about 2mo. So far missed 5 bikes. Two sold before i could travel to them (insert pissed here). My wife actually was present for the last one and got pissed herself and said "Screw it! just take the money you have and finance the rest of a new one."
Made my day... untill I tried to find a new one lol.
