Does anyone know if you put a down payment on a model will that seal the deal before the Dec. 31st. tax-free thing ends? Getting nearly $2000 off my 2009 taxes for a new bike may make it worthwhile, but I'd hate to pre-pay or even buy the thing before I even see one and then it becomes possibly "a lemon bike."
$2000 deduction, or a possible Lemon? Tough decision.
