Time is money! You snooze you lose

Salesmen, pay attention, here's a customer speaking. I was a serious buyer, yet got ignored by one salesman and he probably lost the sale.
First I called my usual Honda motorcycle dealer and ordered some OEM parts, but also got quotes on tires. He didn't have much to offer and quoted me on Bridgestones, which according to my research later were the bottom of the range. Front and rear, he quoted $230 tax included.
Then I asked my mechanic for advice, he says choose other brands like Michelin and that he has a contact named so and so at another shop.

Ex-Wife Also Buys New; I Buy Used.

As part of our divorce, Ex gave me the Explorer she bought new for $35k. Although it was 5 years old, it had only 22,000 miles on it and was perfect! And Ford bought me a new set of Michelin tires to replace the original Firestones!
I've owned over 50 cars, trucks, vans & motorcycles --- only 1 new!
I NEVER PAID a DIME for them! IOW, on average I sold them for what I paid -- or MORE (3x more in one case!). Sure, I added oil, replaced batteries & tires -- routine maintenance for any car, new or used.

When my free, perfect, 24k Explorer was stolen, Insurer gave me $11k! I then bought a Honda Accord from a neighbor for $100 (still going strong after 3+ yrs, w/ 276k miles on it)!
When son was 14, he bought a motorcycle from a neighbor for $75; it had been stored...
