My mate is looking to upgrade his bike (he has a Kawasaki ER5) and really likes the Fireblade. We went into a bike shop (I won't name the store) and he asked to test ride an '07 Fireblade to see if it's what he wants as it's a racing bike & a different seat style plus the bigger engine capacity. To cut to the chase he was sat down by the salesman afterwards & they "chatted" about figures etc. My mate said he wouldn't be in a position to buy for another couple of months as he doesn't want to go the way of finance. He was there for an hour the sales guy wouldn't let him walk away. I know he's doing his job but when does the sales pitch end & bullying/harrassment begin ? He even called his manager over & there were 2 of them crowding my mate pressuring him to "not let it go ..... just put down a deposit, it's a limited edition (which it wasn't)" .. etc .. etc. I felt it was completely unprofessional & it has put me off going back to that store & perhaps test riding any bikes myself until I have the cash to buy. Am I being harsh ? Is this normal practice in bike shops ?
