The one condition I had for purchasing the Burgman 650 was that I wanted to keep my payments at or near $100/month. Including extended warranty on a new 2004 Burgman 650, I put 40% down (about $3k). $1,200 of that came from having a garage sale that got rid of a lot of stuff I haven't used in years. Another $1k came from selling stuff around the house that I no longer had a use for but sat around collecting dust. I really only came up with $800 out of pocket. Currently, I'm looking at transferring the balance on my loan to one of those 0% APR credit card offers.Pinwheel said:who did you go through if you financed your scooter?
If you don't mind me asking, how much did you put down if you had a down payment?
I think I need to start saving and need a general idea of how much. I'm thinking 10-15% down.
credit rating...well it was good enough to buy a house last month. i hope by march it will still be good enough to buy a new scoot. if not better.Randy said:Another idea Like Chuck said, figure out how much you want to spend each month then ask your dealer how much you need to put down to reach that payment.
Bottom line however is your credit rating. :wink:
my luck they would actually come out and look. it's a good idea though. has me thinking now. :wink:Randy said:In that case make a few payments then go to the bank and tell them you want a home improvement loan,
most banks give good rates on those loans and never check .
Besides, parking a Burgman in the garage is a home improvement :lol:
