If you will be new to the LA area, hit me up if you need any help getting familiar with the local motorbike scene. I have a pretty good relationship with several of the local motorcycle dealers too.Haha. Wouldn't that be something.
Unfortunately, it is, of course, as Sherpa mentions, the taxes that get ya.
Thankfully I don't live there anymore. I recently spent 2 years working in New York, currently working out of Lima, Peru, but will be relocating to Los Angeles over the course of 2018.
I will be looking to pick up a 1299 SA once I get settled.
I believe Denmark have been lowering the taxes on vehicles slightly the past few years, but when I lived there it was 25% sales tax (only paid when purchased new - then essentially becomes a part of the cars value) and then comes 180% in "registration tax". So any vehicle you purchase you essentially have to pay for the vehicle itself - and then pay for it two more times to legally drive it on the road.
I didn't realize that the taxes were so high there. I often stupidly forget how lucky we are here in the US when it comes to motor vehicles.
