Default Help me spend my money!

OK...now that I sold an outboard motor, I'll have $6500 to replenish my savings so I have to ask what you guys think is a better buy.

I can buy back my 2010 HCR that I NEVER rode,with about $900 worth of extras on it for $9000, he won't take a cent less. It has 1200 miles on it. It would cost about $425 in taxes if we write it up for $7K. The downside to this sled is the wide front end.

My dealer has a 2009 M1000 LE for $9300 NEW, the one with the cool camo graphics but I will have to pay $630 in taxes and fees. This sled is a 162 and to make it a 153 it might cost lets say $300, I can swap the track at no cost. So that would put me a little over $10K the way I want it.

So it's about $800 difference between the two but one is NEW

Dam it sucks having a problem like this!

WHAT WOULD YOU BUY??

I would purchase an new 2010 M8. You could probably swing a deal if you play your cards right for just couple hundred more you could have a brand new full warranty 2010 M8.
