Oh the Humanity

What is it with dealers who balk at full payment? Has anyone else experienced this? I am so frustrated with the doofus interface known as dealer interaction, I am compelled to write! With lots of punctuation! Think Marvel comics dialogue!

...this has happened more than once. After a grueling process of self-deception, I convince myself there is only one bike in the world for me, and this dealer has it - at retail price, but I don't care because two out of three moto-journalists surveyed say it is The One.

Fine, I'll take it.

Here is the unfathomable part - I offer to pay full retail with pre-approved financing -- and the dealer refuses...unless I put down a cash deposit. What part of full payment don't you understand?

Are they too lazy to verify with the credit union? Are they just plain stupid?
