He told me he wouldn't take less than about 15% more than that.

Went to the other dealer and bought the bike and took the rest of my business with me.
15% is huge.

Either they guy you bought from was giving the bike away, or they guy you used to buy from wasn't willing to cut any kind of a deal.

How 'bout some numbers and make/model of bike?
