If I were you I would not pay more than $4,000 OTD, at least that was the quote I got from Highland Kawasaki and Wild West Honda. I'm going to haggle my off to get it for 3,800 at least.

I also called them today, Highland Kawasaki had a green one for sale. Both of them are going to be getting more within a few days.

That's where we got Shabana's 07. They made us a goooood deal so hopefully they do you right as well.

I would not give the original dealer another chance. They should have done you right in the first place, not after being harassed by you.

arrrrrg

then GM just caleed me and said he was making an extra effort to get me one in there and he would let me know as soon as one gets there. If he makes good on his word I wont mind doing business with them but I guess they don't expect a woman to come in that is so exposed to a mans world as I.
I dont think that this had anything to do with you being a woman... seems to me like they just wanted to make more money on the deal and they probably did ... did you have a deposit down on it?

isnt funny how a shop will destroy their reputation for less than $700? By them not selling you the bike at the quoted price then getting rude on top of that, they have lost a ton of business just by word of mouth...I dont know AJ but I dont care too either.

They are a shady dealership period! They had a 06 busa on craigslist for $6000 which is a steal. Didnt expect it to be perfect but it was junk! My buddy went to go see it and it was a backdoor "on the down low" type deal. They took it on trade and found out it had a messed up tranny (No second gear) and the bike was pretty trashed for an 06. He said it looked rough for even a 96. Looked like a repo or something. Well, they couldnt sell it on the floor like it sat so instead of fixing it properly they wanted to just it off on someone else. The saleman gave my buddy a bunch of shady BS lines and my buddy passed on the deal. They were trying to tell him its an easy fix and so on but if it was, why would the dealership not just fix it??? Doesnt make sense. I dont even think the bike would run my buddy said.

AJ FOYT SUCKS!! But if you have a messed up bike, go trade it in. They dont test ride! lol

Motoextreme in tomball is GREAT to deal with. I bought Raya's 636 for them at the beginning of 06 when the 06's just hit the floors for $8500 OTD with tie downs, rear stand and canyon dancer included!

Their prices are great and the people there are nice!

Go see J.R. @ Mancuso Kawasaki S/W 59 freeway. He's the GM (General Manager). I'm sure he will hook you up on price. I just bought me a new Kawa the other day and hands down beat everyone in Houston by $800. 713-995-9944
Donny is the Sales Manager. Talk to them over the phone first.
Location: 59S/w feeder inbound after you pass the Memorial S/W Hospital past Beechnut and Gessner. On the right before Bellaire street.

Goodluck!

Sorry to hear that you didn't get the bike you've been waiting for so long.

LOL for the peeps that suggest the names of the General Manager for some dealers. They don't get to be GM for being a suck salesman. They are a pro in their games and they know how to get you with their ways. Very seldom you will deal with the GM, THEY ARE THE MANAGER, not salesman. They will let you talk to their sales guys since they don't get the commission. That's square one.

tell them you really want it and looked into warranties and learned they can be benificial, ask them what their longest warranty period available is and tell them that you would like that one only if they will give you the bike for a payment plan, the one with the most months (... and highest interest). say "ok! can you have it ready in xx days for me please?" string em along as long as you can after that...

for a commission like that, they will try to hold onto it for a while. maybe ride by as soon as you get your bike from somewhere else too

If you aren't buying a Kawasaki at Highlands Kawasaki then you are going to pay too much anyways. Think of this experience with AJ as a sign.

the lowest price I've been quoted was at moto extreme in Tomball. I have been talking to JM from AJ and he is trying to make it right. I got a migrain yesterday from all this and it has gone this morning. Poor Tim, he is now because he didn't get his steak and bj last night as planned for the man holiday I did give him a raincheck though, so I guess he will get his the next time it rains
