Re: Buying a Motorcycle: Part III
My problem with buying a new bike (besides the money) is that there are so many I'd like to sample that I can't choose. I have the same problem with supermodels.

Most motorcycle salesmen I have known could just as well been selling refrigerators and washing machines for all the interest they had in bikes.

Without opening fire? Hey, I thought you were a liberal.

I guess you didn't realize we're joking, buddy. I guess that went right over your head.

I know, I was starting to grind my teeth. The guy had to talk with the sales manager, the owner, the parts guy, aol chat Erik Buell...drove me nuts.

But you think that's bad? I'm on the phone right now trying to get an insurance quote. Jee heezus. AIS has really horrible jazz on the hold button btw. Sounds like a bad muzak rendition of abbey lincoln's "afro blue". gag

No, they changed stations. Now it's "Muskrat Love". I'm hanging up.

MSRP for a Buell? I think you got taken. I just pick out the bike/car I want and let my wife do the negotiating. She is great. I have too much emotions to negotiate i.e. I just want the bike now... While she was haggling with the sale people I was trying on Boots, helmets, jackets, etc. It only took her 2 hours on my Ninja and she got it for a significant discount. I think the boys just wanted her to leave and not ***** her off.. I think she could make a career out it...

Also we had cash in hand.. A couple of times my wife said "Ok we will just go someplace else that wants the cash now" Worked like a charm...

Re: Buying a Motorcycle: Part III
Well, I was going to flame you in this response. However, I decided to check out your website just for yucks, and I see that you are one of the few dealers with the balls to post OTD prices right up front. I have to respect that.

So, consider this an apology, and picture me slinking away with my tail between my legs.

Re: Buying a Motorcycle: Part III
Look, I had the $$$ and didn't want to haggle.

Anyway, the thought of riding a 24 year old leaky KZ750 anymore was too much to bear.
