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.

The HCR is used...so no warranty left as far as I know. The M1 has a 90 day warranty and that gets me though a Midwest winter.

Are you saying you would swap 153 parts for the 162 parts? Rails, coolers, and tail section.

If you sold the HCR I'm assuming there was something or multiple things you didn't like about it. If I was in your shoes, I would start looking for a 2010 M8. You can still find Sno Pros for 10k or less. Probably with a year factory warranty.

I would without a doubt go with the camo 1000. Love those graphics and a brand new 1000... It's a no brainer!

I gotta agree with the M1k, I love mine. But if I was stuck in Wisconsin I'd buy an M7 for 4k and spend the rest of the cash on a month or two trip to BC and ride it every day.
