WTB 08-09 250r Houston, TX

Just like the Title says looking for a 08 or 09 250r for sale in the houston area. Will buy new from dealers, and have cash in hand. Anyone got a line on some in stock going for around $4500?

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 think CL will give you a better chance than Ebay. Good luck with your search though!

Now, that's not fair. Where were you when I was looking to get one?

Yessirs,

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.

You'll be even more pissed when you can actually find one and they try to charge you for every little thing they can come up with.

Keep looking. I'm not sure where you are located, but the northeast's riding season is coming to an end and some people don't want to store the bike for the winter.

Congratulations. Just under $200 over the original budget; that's not too bad. Which color did you get? To be honest I am surprised they didn't jack the price up to more than that. Awesome!

EDIT: I assume this is an '08, right?
