On a leased vehicle you only pay sales tax as you make the monthly payments, rather than on the entire sales price up front! On a new bike which cost, say $20k, if you only planned to keep it 3 years, you would save about $1500. When I went to RUB school, they taught me it could be kind of stupid to give money away. Lease vs purchase epends on many factors, I purchased my king, and my GT2, because I plan to keep them a long time, and also to modify them. I lease my Audi so i could save several thousand $$$ to help pay for the king.
Maybe, if everyone else will keep donating to state and local governments, my taxes will go down? (LOL)
