I really don't get the mindset of sales people... I just need to get an answer on one question before pulling the trigger on this FZ-10. I'm pretty much at a "shut up and take my money" mode at this point given how great a deal he was offering. The sales guy has completely blown me off since Saturday. No reply to email or voice mail. I've called him a few times and conveniently go straight to VM every time - it's winter, it's been bad weather this week, I highly doubt a motorsports dealership is that busy. My assumption is he can't/won't sell to me at the price he originally quoted and is hoping I just go away. Either way, it was a professional colleague of his (and friend of a relative to me) who put us together so he is making himself look bad to his friend/colleague as well as making the dealership look bad. At this point, if this goes down the way I'm expecting, I'll gladly have no issue steering people away from the dealership. "Friend price" or not, there's still a level of customer service maintain.

The salesman has to get the price from a sales manager to begin with. Call the place and ask to speak with the GM or sales manager and tell him whats going on.If things work out thwn you can ask to work with another sales person if you don’t want to deal with the original guy.

I would, but he was supposedly giving me a "friend" price because a friend of a relative asked him about a good price for an FZ-10 on my behalf. If I call because of his crappy service and the sales guy gets in trouble, I don't want it getting back to the relative's friend.

As a salesman if he is not getting back to you then that's his fault and he must not think that you are a serious buyer. Like Nate said call up and speak to the Sales Manager don't even give them the name. Just tell them that you were in and a salesman told you a price but you don't want to go through the salesman anymore. And if they honor that price they will sell it as a house deal and cut out all the salesmen and whatever commission that he would have earned. This will solidify that you didn't name any names and you still get the deal on your terms. The best part is when that salesman sees your name on the deal he will feel like a moron for not taking 1 minute to make a call.

Thanks Nate and Bud. I was thinking about driving to the dealership tomorrow and not give the guy a chance to ignore me. But I'm confrontational like that. I may try calling first to see what the sales manager thinks. Dealership is a bit of a drive so I'd be giving up a good deal of time just there and back.

In one of the opening scenes a guy was dumping dust out of a skull. I couldn't help but think "I wish I could do that".

The compressed air in both ears works for me when I feel like that. Clears it all up.

Looks like this happened a couple days ago. Shame for somebody to lose their life over road rage.  But its looking like the guy pulled over, got out of his car and started wailing on her.  If thats the case then I have no sympathy for him and hope her life doesnt get wrecked by the legal system

KIRO7 learned that the woman on the bike is Aubrey (T) Bowlin, who troopers said is 23 years old. She was detained at the scene last night and then released.

 

She seems to have a go fund me page.

Yeah, this puts a dent in my plans for a Grom. It'll happen, just probably have to wait awhile longer. :)
