ok so im going to try to keep this one shorter than the last lol. When looking for a new sport bike, what is proper etiquette when looking I did a prelim look at some sport bikes at the kawasaki dealer and when I sat on the zx-10 the salesman popped out from behind his desk like he was on fire. He ran up to me and yelled at me to "watch my belt buckle!" funny thing was I wasnt wearing a belt. So I quickly got off the bike and when I asked about rideing the ninja he gave me a brochure and not so subtly showed me the door. Did I violate some unwritten rule about not test driving bikes before buying? I feel like before I spend 9k + On a new bike and gear I want to ride it ya know?
I don't know fill me in before I go to the Yamaha dealer. But the kawi dealership expierience was enough for me to decide not to get a ninja.

I haven't bought any new bikes so I'm not sure how it works. I only heard that "you scratch it you buy it" thing, and test riding a new bike that I'm not used to I'm just kinda afraid it comes to that. The local dealer where I'm at let people sit on (they used to have signs saying "ask a salesman if you want to sit on bikes" but not anymore). They don't normally go up to people when we just step in but in fact when I have a question they stick with me all the way till everything's answered. I'd say that's cool.

hrzracr23 - were you at a Harley dealer? :eek:
