I'm so happy my dealer is concerned enough about my bike to put in the extra 3 hours over and above what Ducati recommends.
They try to rip you off (as you seem to know when I read your line correctly). As they tried to rip me off when I wanted to buy an ST1300 from them:
$11999 advertised price ("new" 2007 model, no ABS, last summer)
+ $4500 fees and tax.
OTD price at a different dealer for the same bike was $12799.
I rather ride a Vespa scooter for the rest of my life before I buy anything from them.
