So when do you want to print up those banners? :)

They just lost another potential customer here, sucks for Motion.

Hey, I am millions of miles away, and certainly don't want to rain on your parade, but a few points I think need to be considered...

Why was the salesman sacked...? Perhaps he was making ridiculous deals and costing the owners a fortune - maybe he was one of those people who promise you the world, but can't deliver because they don't own the world... you know the type - your instant best buddy...

Perhaps he was trying to impress the boss with his sales prowess - he might have been on a trial period, and if he got 20 guys to put down deposits on bikes, it makes him look good that month. That would explain why it's not docuemnted... didn't want the boss to find out he was cutting him out of the profit loop with such low prices...

Perhaps he knew he was leaving, and he was trying to stick it to the boss, and perhaps it has been documented, but the owners are not volunteering that info or paperwork...

If there is no documentation, the owner is just trying to protect his interests - you walk in off the street and tell him what a great deal was setup, no-one else knows... he probably thinks you are trying to pull a fast one...

If the owner does know about the deal, then he is obviously wishing he didn't, and using the long-gone salesman as the excuse... If there was a deal, he would be a champion to honour it - even at his cost... if there was a deal, he is being a chump to go back on it...

His attitude sums up the story though, and as it has been pointed out, you don't have much of a leg to stand on, you are better off writing the experience off, and remembering the dealers attitude...

Buy a CA bike if you want one at a good price regardless...
