    Not feeling the BMW love

    I get the feeling he is not a BMWMOA kinda guy.

    Warning, this straddles the NWS line. Of course, that depends on where you work.

    Nice bike and that's a great pitch, but guy sounds too angry.

    A visit to an MOA Open House in STL might cure that.

    Very clever. When you're selling, the main idea is to attract attention, and this ad will do it.

    As for his comment about the payments, many sales feature seller contributions these days. I recently handled a Harley purchase for my brother in law, and the seller had to kick in a bank draft to Harley Finance for $5,000.00.

    I don't even think he is angry. He wants to sell the bike and came up with a different "For Sale" ad. Quite clever.

    Funny ad - seems like his only problem with it is that it is too fast for him. Like Ian, I can understand, I'd have to exercise continuous self-restraint if I owned that (something I don't really have to do with my K75RT )

    That said, I absolutely love that bike and it is one of the few newer BMWs I would consider buying...

    the crummy BMW factory soft bags that are as attractive as a genital wart and have the capacity to, maybe, carry two complete ham sandwiches.

    ah.. I see.. he has to sell the bikes to put a ride under his bride..

    No wonder he removed his offer for "Presidential non-sex".... Hillary will need a new job so she can keep travelling.

    Hey all: Not interested in the bike, (my RT is fast enough for these old bones), but he sure knows how to sweeten a deal!! Wonder what his wife would say about the bonus? Vaya con Dios, Dutch

    OMG, this is funny
