And guide me through the process of buying my first bike .
I finally decided on the bike I'm getting, '04 R6. But since I've never done this before my natural paranoid tendancies need reassuring. Can anyone here give me a typical synopsis of what I should expect. For example...
You walk in dealership:
Look around and find the bike you want. Scratch head... look the bike all around... mess with all the levers, pegs, etc and then finish by kicking the tire.
Sam the salesman walks up to you:
You let Sam know you are interested in the bike... Sam takes you into the little office and asks for a good faith deposit ($How much?)... Upon getting his money, you will negotiate price... You make offer, Sam shows your offer to sales manager and comes back with their counter offer.
When the price is right:
Sam will get you to fill out all the paper work and ask for further details. Then you pay the man and schedule a pick up date.
Is this what I should generally expect? And also, for the good faith deposit how much should I leave? and if the price isn't right can I leave? and if I do leave, do I lose my deposit?
As you guys can see I'm in a deliemma... So many questions yet so little time .
