Tell him that NineT forum members are saying that; a good dealer must be able to swap his showroom slot with yours to keep a loyal customer.I visited my dealer yesterday to order some accessoires.
He told me, my bike will arrive in week 9 !!
That's 4 weeks earlier than expected.
But what makes me angry: He told that he will get the first on in week 8 and that this one is NOT mine.... this one is for his showroom.
I think the date of delivery is not depending on the country you live in, it only depends on your number in the line.
I'm interested to know, what put You off the k1300s?I've been told by TWO dealers here in California that the first bike in is the showroom/ demo bike. And not a customer bike.
I think that's standard.
I'm ok with that. Seems fair as a business owner myself.
Hard to sell such a big ticket item by using pixels.
I wanted a k1300s until I rode it. I looked at pictures till I was nutty.
Reality was very different than all the pics.
So I get why it's necessary for bike no. 1 to be a floor model.
( the cry baby inside me still wants mine first before the dealer and all the other guys ahead of me though...)
Is that like in June? Takes those tramp steamers a LONG time to get to OZ from GermanyOur bike, and the demo bike are due at the same time apparently.
