Found my V2K on Ebay in October 2011. It was a new 2009 Classic LT. It was an auction at Cycle World of Cherry hill New Jersey. I won with a bid of $9400. had it shipped to me in Florida for $250 with UShip. I felt that I got a great deal. haven't stopped riding since its arrival.
There is a V2K for auction on EBAy now. A 2008 I believe. Only 2100 miles. Check it out!

Sadly I did not get approved for a loan, and didnt have enought left from insurance to buy a new bike, been a rough year financially had a few late payments, but I will pay off one credit card in a few days, and one in January at which point i will try again. Should have about $3500 put away by then too

While it might have been covered later in the thread, things have changed with Kawi Credit.

HSBC has been replaced by Capitol One as the bank behind the Kawi Credit Card In the Spring of this year.

The deals have always varied by time of year and the type of Kawi product.

I got my JetSki in 05, and the low interst deal only ran for a year. In 08 when I got the 900, it was supposed to be two years, but just kept on going anyway.

Power Sports lending has become a problem since 09, and a lot depends on your credit rating, and the location/dealers location. A smaller bank, or Credit Union may not have had the "repo" experience, and might be more favorable.

Been there. It's not fun but you will get you another one when ya can. Having a piece of mind financially (no matter how small) has more satisfaction than owning any other bike. I had to get rid of my Meanie and 4 years later i finally got me another bike.

1985 Honda Nighthawk 650 (First Bike)
2004 Vulcan 1500 Classic (First Big Bike)
2007 Vulcan 1600 Meanstreak (Love Affair)
1999 Yamaha 1100 V-Star Custom (Right Price at the Time)
2008 V2K Classic (Favorite Vulcan)
2014 HD Ultra Limited (Bells and Whistles)
Who would have thought I would grow up to become "Spatially Educated" and play Connect-the-Dots for a living.

I used my bank, a credit union, for the used 900 I just bought. They do MC loans just like auto loans so the rates are good. They will only finance a certain % of a used bike depending on how old it is, however, and will only finance a vehicle up to 6 years old, I think. I didn't go that route - I had plenty in savings but didn't want to drop it down any. I just used my own money as collateral and I'll pay it off in a few months. 2% interest rate and they just put a hold on your savings for the amount of the loan. The money's still there you just can't use it and it frees up as you make payments. This makes things easier if I should need to sell it quickly because there is really no lien on the bike and I have the title. I'll should have it paid off by next spring.

I sold my last bike - an SV650 - to get rid of a payment I didn't need at the time since my wife wasn't teaching full time yet. Had to sell an R6 because of financial reasons before that. I know what it's like to have to sell the toys or go without when times are tough. You'll get back on the horse soon enough mistoffeles. Sorry to hear you had a crash.
