Oh ya, absolutely. I have tons of money. That's why I was so pissed. I'm stupid that way.
Duh! I don't have 20K just laying around to spend on a whim. I had to be very careful on how I could make payments, what I had to juggle finance-wise, what to do without, all so I could hopefully enjoy my beautiful finely crafted German machine, that I would have for many years to come.
I did what I thought was more than due diligence for my research into the bike.
I admit I was naive in my expectations about "BMW quality" "craftsmanship" etc., but based on all you twits that shit on everyone who DOES complain about getting a raw deal on a bike, acting like they are a tiny minority who is just bitching, WTF are people supposed to do, other than try and make the best informed choice they can, at the time?
