I'm always amazed by the lack of understanding Americans have for bargaining, or for keeping their mouths shut...

When you ask a dealer, who doesn't give demo rides on MV products, "What if you have the bike prepped, I take it out and decide I don't like it?" The reply? "I'll service it."

Or when you say, "The loan is approved but my god, that insurance is $3000 dollars a year?!", and they say something vanilla instead of saying, "Yes it is, but I know this supermodel that has said she'll spend a week in Italy with the guy that buys this bike!"

Or, "You know this bike isn't going to be much fun in the city."

Dealers should NEVER, ever, say something like this unless it's followed by, "But you can outrun any cop car in _____ and kill yourself in a way to get your relatives on FOX News for at least a week!"

Of course, honesty is a plus. However... Sometimes I miss the plaid-suit wearing salesguys who'll lie to your face but make you happy that you bought that POS. Honesty has no place in selling an object of lust.

It's like going on a date with a beautiful woman (or guy), only to have them, over that first dinner, telling you about every single phobia, plastic surgery, and financial difficulty they have had in the past twenty years.

I think that Saturn was the worst thing to happen to this country. Honesty in car sales. Good fraking gods.

Jeez, not happy with getting an honest person/deal, and not happy when you get fisted on a deal. There is just no pleasing the miserable. :rolleyes

You sold her Ed......not to hurt your feelings, but you're not a handsome man :wtf: (nor am I).:stickpoke. Closing that deal required supreme salesmanship.

Take it from a man that knows supreme salesmanship. :laughing:
