DFWstangs Bike Cruise July 19 - Sunday

We need another DFWstangs bike cruise. It's been a while since we've had one so I thought I would try and put one together. Sunday's always seemed best for us so I figured July 19th would give enough notice for every one to prepare.

I'm thinking we can do the FM455 route again starting in Anna, TX and take it to Denton. We could meet up about 9:00am and take off around 9:30. Stop some where to eat and stop at the Ray Roberts dam to take a break and take a group and individual photos if we want. Take FM455 all the way to I-35 and then we can decide who wants to take it back to Anna and who wants to break off at that time to go home.

So...who's in?

Sounds good....I should have a new front tire by then, after my 4th of July roadtrip.

I'll more than likely be in.

Saw a Ducati just like yours yesterday man. Pretty sharp, I've gotta say.

I'll know for sure whether or not I'm in for this one after I get back from my trip and see whether or not I can get a front tire in a timely manner.

Where to ride?

On a weekday that allows both quads and bikes, where can one ride that is close?

Need it closer than Muenster.

So far, Brushy Creek will be open, Eisenhower State Park (but it seems pretty limited) and some MX specific tracks.

Fatboys...you just have to call and schedule it.

Village Creek allows quads on Tuesdays, but they ride seperate from bikes.

TMT...used to be Holeshot...this place makes Shady Grove look like Village..

Trophy club changed the track up...looked alot better, but still too many people out there at once.

ATV Financing

So I am thinking of purchasing a Polaris 500 HO 4 wheeler and was wondering how hard it is to get financed? The total cost would come to $6k and was planning to put down $2k. I have heard you need a FICO in the high 700's to qualify?

How bad is your FICO? We went to Kawasaki with nothing down. They gave us 12k credit for anything we wanted. We used about 5k of it. Our credit score isnt awesome but its good. Only thing hurting it is debt to income ratio while I finish my last year of school and am carrying 40k worth of student loan debt.

Eaglemark (Harley Davidson) is fairly lenient still. If you are only borrowing $4000 on something worth $6000 you really shouldn't have any problems.

Also the Kawi dealership did it similar to a credit card... we got approved for the card not the vehicle... than we put the vehicle on the card and have an account through Kawasaki that we can use to make future purchases at Kawasaki.

Polaris offers several different financing options, the easiest is their Star Card, which is basically a credit card through HSBC....they normally offer some pretty good incentives on it too. I bought the first couple on a 0% for 18 month deal back in 07', and just paid them off before the 18 months were up. They are always offering stuff like that...any dealer can help you out with it.

Over the last several years I've bought 4 brand new Polaris. A tip for you on this is to go to Oklahoma unless you have a local dealer that will give you an ag exemption (most won't). Most people don't know it, but these things aren't taxed like cars are (6.25%), they are considered a luxury item, so they are taxed with regular state sales tax (8.25%), which sucks however it also creates a loop hole in the system....if you go to Oklahoma and purchase one they will not charge you any tax (the dealer I use up there only charges a flat $35 documentation fee), and when you come back down to Texas with your certificate of origin the tax office will not charge you any sales tax b/c this type of vehicle (for off road use only) is not taxed through their system....so you'll end up only paying the title application fee.

Bottom line, drive up to Oklahoma and you'll save $495 on that $6000 ATV you are looking at. However, I've also found that the dealers in Ok are also willing to cut you an even better deal for making the drive, so you stand to save even more than that.

Good luck, and feel free to PM me if I can answer any questions for you....have been through this process several times.

Damn good information, thank you for your help. $495 in savings equals more goodies for the bike. My FICO is somewhere in the low-mid 600's right now due to some old stuff but my mortgage and truck payments have been on time for the pst 2 years. Debtto income is somewhere around 30% so hopefully I can get approved.

I don see you getting approved with a FICO in the 600-650 especially in the financial state every things in right now. If you can though more power to ya.

I pretty much figure you need a FICO above 700 to get approved. I may just pay cash, I just paid off a lot of bad debt in the past few weeks, but it will take over 6 months for it to be adjusted on my credit. Need this ATV before hunting season, my lease partner is selling the 4 wheel Bronco we were using.

most of that information isnt exactly accurate... i work at a polaris dealership in arlington, we dont charge 8.25% sales tax. Bikes and ATV's are all taxed at 6.25%, so youre not doing yourself any favors by driving all the way to oklahoma

As far as financing goes, we look for mid to high 600's for approval, so i dont see you having any issues getting what you want, i have a Polaris 500 HO, in stock right now, feel free to stop by the store and take a look at it

LOL, it takes what, a whopping hour-hour fifteen to get to the border from the DFW area to save 300-400?

When I purchased my last off road bike I ended up going to Shreveport to pick it up for two reasons, to save $350 in tax & because they destroyed any of the prices I was able to get here in the DFW area.

Typical dealer response....you are completely full of shit! I can prove every bit of what I said above, as I said I've done this many times already. I have all of my records from purchases made here in the state and those made out of the state...I'm happy to scan and email to you to prove it. If anyone needs further proof, just call your local tax assessors office....they will tell you that ATV's are not taxed through the regular vehicle tax system....they are taxed 8.25% states sales tax NOT 6.25% state vehicle sales tax......you need to go do some homework, I suspect you don't deal with that part of the business you work for and are just talking out your ass.

Don't be scared based on those internet reviews....you have to consider the source. People buy these things to beat on them, and there are a lot of guys out there that are pissed because they took their new ATV through 6-feet of mud everyday for the first few months they owned it and expect that it should be as good as new.

Like anything else, if you take care of it and follow manufacturers recommendations it will serve you well.

I have owned 4 Polaris ATV's and now an 09' Polaris RZR and they have all been great machines....they've regularly pulled a couple Honda's out that my brother owns, and even a Kawasaki or two. I'm confident that the next ATV I buy will again be a Polaris.

Polaris's are good machines. I have just heard when they break they cost more than other brands to fix for some reason.

Don't buy ATVs if you can not fix them yourself... if you can't fix them yourself buy extend warranty... or be able to do both like I did. They will break and dealerships charge around 85 an hr to work on them.

I plan on looking into the extended protection plans since I am not used to working on ATV/Bikes. I have a buddy that has a 2005 750 Brute he uses on his ranch annd beats the hell out of it and it keeps on ticking. They have had other ATV's and found the Kawa to be the best one so far. I will mosty use this for hunting and pooting around a ranch so ther will not be much hammering on the ATV (since I'm 40 and more cautious now).

I will mosty use this for hunting and pooting around a ranch so ther will not be much hammering on the ATV (since I'm 40 and more cautious now).
Get a 360 prairie and save yourself some money then.

And if you really plan to pay in cash do this...


get them to finance it... then when the first bill comes pay it in full and it will help raise your credit score.

Thought about doing that, but I am hoping to get more incentive if I pay in cash. I liked the 360 Prarie, but I'm 6'6" and need a little bigger machine.

As far as financing goes, we look for mid to high 600's for approval, so i dont see you having any issues getting what you want, i have a Polaris 500 HO, in stock right now, feel free to stop by the store and take a look at it

Stores name is Arlington Motorsports

Thanks

I am going to call Robert over there, or better yet that big african american Mike Thomas and tell him to slap the hell out of you. Who the hell told you that ATV tax percentage is 6.25%? You are right about that on bikes but ATV's (as with all off road product) is 8.25% sales tax. Go and ask them!

Don't buy ATVs if you can not fix them yourself... if you can't fix them yourself buy extend warranty... or be able to do both like I did. They will break and dealerships charge around 85 an hr to work on them.
Yeah, I agree on that....for some reason shops seem to charge more to work on the Polaris machines. I do pretty much all the work on mine myself, and always buy my parts and supplies online from Babbits, and they seem to be pretty reasonable. But nevertheless, this is good advice right here....if you aren't confident that you can work on one yourself you should for sure spend the money for an extended warranty.....because taking them to the dealer is always spendy. I've found that they aren't really hard to work on though either.

Go look at several before you decide....I have also heard a lot of good things about the Kawasaki machines. The Artic Cat's are also known to be badass machines, but they are pretty damned expensive. My brother has a couple Honda's, they are pretty decent but he has had a fair share of issues (mostly electrical) out of both of them. However, I also know a guy that has a Foreman with the power steering and he raves about that thing.

Either way, good luck with it.

I do not really see the point of power steering... its a 4 wheeler... easy to stear and if its not, just gun it and lean and power slide it around lol. Power steering just sounds like more expensive stuff to fix and more stuff to get in the way when trying to mod it.

got hit in the arm today riding...

I'm not sure WHAT it was. I didnt see it till the second before it hit my arm and bounced off. I know it was dark colored and about the size of a golf ball, but this some bitch hurt like a mofo and bruised and cut me instantly. The pic doesn't do it justice but you get the point. I was yelling and screaming in my helmet it hurt so bad. I was doing about 80mph. There really wasnt any big trucks around to be throwing off any dirt chuncks either.. I have no idea what it was...

Ginormous grasshopper? Only partially kidding as I've taken a couple at high speed and they can do some damage. Be well and breathe deep.

spoke to Jasn at Kawa of Carrollton and he's going to hook me up next weekend. Just need to find a decent priced/quality trailer now. Looksl ek the cheapest is around $725 5x10 w/out a ramp. Not much on craigs list right now. Thanks to all for their input/advice. I look forward to hunting season now.
