hey...hey....
well... i'm a new memeber as you all can see....i wish i found this site sooner....i was reading the threads on OTD price on new bikes...and realized that i got RIPPED... i just got a 2001 ZX-6R..yellow... they advertise for $6600...when i got there they slapped me with $799 freight and $499 prep. and other crap....i walked out paying $8800 with tags....then i got the ext. warranty for $399....freakin crap... the total was like $9200... boy did i learn my lesson...an expensive one too....
i had a used 1992 NSR 250...never bought a new bike before....i guess that's my problem..... oh well..life goes on....
well...i hope other people will find this site before its too late......

As long as you love the bike and get good service you'll get what you paid for. There is always a better deal out there and someone will always love to tell you about it, like this time I bought a 93 ZX-7R and I only paid... just jokin pal.

Welcome, and enjoy your bike and all the great people here.

Cheers.

Welcome !!

I agree with machman, as long as you love the bike it doesn't matter (to a certain extent) what you paid for it. It will surely pay for itself in fun and enjoyable rides!

Good luck....ride safe!

Talking Welcome to SBW!

Welcome!

Consider your rip-off a learning and just prepare for the next time. Enjoy your ride and tell others about the site. Make sure you use that ext-warranty to the fullest. Have fun!!!
