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 guess I found a unusual dealer. I just bought a new (to me) 2003 Honda Sabre. I walked into the dealership looking like I always do when I ride in the summer. Cut off denim jacket over a long sleeve t-shirt and jeans. Not exactly lookin' rich. They were friendly but not pushy. I sat on the bikes that interested me. I test rode the bike I wanted and to be honest I had it out a half hour. :) They had a policy that permitted test drives to a licensed insured rider. I did buy the bike, and I felt that I was treated well. They will get my recommendation any day. (Tom Clark in Pittsburgh, Pa.)
