Rode the Storm
So finally had the chance to take a decent ride on a 2012 Storm.
Really liked that thing. It ran strong and felt impressively tight. Handling was excellent and it pulled out of corners (and anywhere for that matter) as I expected.
I loved the clean, basic, "elemental" feel of riding that bike. Exactly what I am looking for in an overall fun bike that has balls and not a lot of bling.
I explained to the dealer that I am not going to spend any time playing price games but I do want competitive and fair price. That does not mean list price. I know I can buy from a wholesaler type and have it shipped from Florida or NY or wherever, but I'd rather buy locally if it makes sense.
I told them the few accessories and warranty I want as part of the overall deal then asked for their all-in price...one time...one price all-in (OTD) and told them it is 100% fine if they don't want to work this way and I'd just move-on.
So far the original dealer has come-back with a price, still need the 4 other regional dealers to send me their prices...then I'll make the decision and off we'll go.
Looking forward to it!!!
