Something's fishy here... the "race-only" bike has no headlight, turn signals, etc., and a much lower retail price than you've been quoted. If I had to guess, I'd say the dealer put a couple of parts on a $8,000 *retail* bike and is now trying to charge you plenty for it.
The SuperSport is a GREAT bike but NOT a good seller. You should be able to get a screamin deal from somebody. Get off the internet and make a few phone calls. '04, '05, '06, they're all pretty much the same bikes. You[re never going to find out what you can buy one for if you don't ask.
Check around and see what you can turn up as far as bikes in stock. Again, Beaudry lists a street-legal, all-parts-included, warrantied bike for a few hundred more. Get one shipped, grab your trailer and pick it up or get a cheap plane ticket and ride it home.
