Always buy in winter and sell in summer.

Do you young 'motorcyclists' (allegedly) know nothing? As a young apprentice, it was constantly repeated that: "Eat oysters before you buy your bike, but never hunt Mrs Deer when you are out riding it."

I'm sure Sid Squid will remember that!

Wait till the beginning of the year when the dealers have pre-reg bikes[Dec07] which many have to get their sales figs up and you can haggle a good deal. But in general Jan is a good month to buy as not a lot of people have the cash to spent after Xmas so many a good deal to be struck with desperate sales people
