I was quoted $6k (before taxes, etc.) by a Yamaha dealer in WPB Florida. Another dealer down the road about 1/2 mile didn't quote a price but said that he could be that price (he only had Yamaha at his other location and didn't know the price). Either way it sounds way expensive here. What do you all think about buying from a dealer and having it shipped wihout ever seeing it? Do you have to pay sales tax if you purchase it via. telephone/snail-mail/etc.. from out of state, and if not then how much does it cost to ship one of these things? When I purchase computer parts from an out of state company I don't pay sales tax unless they have a location in my state, I assume it would work the same for motorcycles?
