Not a bad price. Depends on a lot of variables.

What kind of purchase deals have hidden costs up front? That sounds kinda hincky. I think I would be checking out the type of people I was trying to buy bikes from. This must be very disappointing for you Billbob. I wish you better luck in future.

It sounds like you did the right thing, sounds like the dealer was out to screw you.. All the little add on fees is where they make their main profit.. I am sure you can find other wings for a better price.
