I tried that with my local dealer. They kinda chuckled at me. So, I told them I would rather keep my business in my home town but I sure don't care to drive 4.5 hours to save myself over $1000 dollars on the same exact atv. The next day, I was southbound and down. I burned a whole saturday on the road and at the dealership, but it was worth it I think. Plus, I had a friend with me, so I didn't get bored.Go to your dealer say look this is what I can get it for at southern honda a place that is 8.5 hours away, tell them it would take you so much in gas to get there and then add in milage on your truck (the government milage for this year is at 44.5 cents per mile) Tell them that makes their quad worth so much. and tell them you would really like to buy it local but if you can get a much better deal some where else you will travel.
They may look at you and say have a good weekend, or they may drop their price a little more making it worth it to buy it at home.
just my thought
