The "vulture" comment above made me think of an experinece I had a few years ago.

I stopped in at the local Harley Davidson dealer (Capitol HD) and spotted a Buell Ulysses on the floor. It caught my eye because it was shortly after Buell went out of business and the fire sales. I walked over to look at it and a sales guy called from across the floor "Are you one of thise vultures?'. I assume referring to those that scooped up all the Buells for pennies on the dollar when they were marked down. I kind of understood his reaction, it probably was no fun selling off your stock for little to no profit. But not a very cool way to treat a potential customer. I will certainly remember that when shopping for my new Road King.
