When is the best time to start looking for the best deal on a bike. right before the winter or during the winter?

Both

People who were in over their head with a loan over the summer are looking to get out of that loan now. Racers are selling their bikes like crazy rite now because they are broke from racing.

If someone wants to sell a bike in the off season or winter time they better have it priced to sell. It's a buyer market and you should low ball them.

Yeah, now is a great time! I bought my bike last sept. I'd try to buy one before people store them for the winter.

The best time to buy is when you find the bike you want. Don't obsess over a few hundred here or there, bikes are depreciating assets and you can't put a value on the experiences you will have on it. Just make sure you are happy with the bike you decide on.

Well I haven't seen any great deals just yet, but I might not be looking in the right places. or people are not getting desperate yet.

Now, now, now :laughing. Just PM Mao what you are looking for and he will get you some leads. If it is a nice enough bike, pay my bus ticket and I will ride it back for you if it is a state or 2 away :laughing.

My buddy got a STEAL on a bike on New years Day. The guy was like 'your offer is too low' and my buddy was like, 'well you can have my money now or wait three to four months for others to come out'.

The guy took the cash.

Moral of the story: the closer to Xmas Time and the nastier the weather, the BETTER the deal. Good luck.

RockStarr.. what kind of bike are you looking for? I should learn to read. Interested in a 1000RR?
a 1000RR will be out of my range. I would like to not go over 4gs I would like to find one lower than that. (the boss "wife" set the limit)
