  • How did you pay for your most recent Goldwing?

    I have always paid cash for my bikes, but I am curious if I am in the minority. How did you folks pay for your bike?

    I could have paid cash (however) When I can use their money at 0% or 1.5% -I use theirs and paid it off in 12 months. Financed for 36 months.

      Cash, never finance toys. And I love my toys.

        When the idea of owning a Wing became a must have for me, I looked around and saw that I had a boat, snowmobile, and scooter that were not getting used nearly enough. I sold them all, plus the bike I was currently riding, and turned that into the cash to buy my Wing. The added bonus was that I cleared out a ton of space in the garage, which I have since filled with my Wing, a cargo trailer, and a Bunkhouse camper.

          When I built my house in 1964 I took out a 20 year loan, and paid it off in 10 years. That was the only time I've ever borrowed money. It works for me. Be safe and enjoy the ride. Larry

              I usually buy a clean, low mileage, used vehicles.

              My current 2006 Level 3 GW I bought 3 yrs ago off Ebay with 21,000 miles nicely 'farkled' for just under $16000. (It was a retirement gift to myself). I pulled some of my IRA money and paid the extra 10% penalty to pay cash....In fact I pulled all of my IRA money over the past 3 years to pay off toys....Nice having toys and no payment...

                    Finance, 1.8% through credit union. But also sold Harley and dropped that cash on the loan.

                      Cashiers check seeing I live in CA and the bike was in Chicago.

                      Flew in rode home.

                      Can't stand making payments, Because if I croaked before the bike was paid off, that's one less headache my family wouldn't have to deal with afterwards.

                          Generally pay cash but I financed through Honda to get a $500 discount then paid it off when first bill came in.

                              Traded in a paid for Road king that I had paid cash for and paid the difference in cash. I too am not going to finance a toy. I did it one time in the past and lost my ass on the deal when I sold it.

                                      Traded the 2004 GL1800, plus a check for the difference. I promised myself I would never finance a bike... it is more than enough to be financing a new Jeep every so often.
