    Welcome - sometimes folks will "talk something up" to make themselves feel better - like you said.

    Had a neighbor that just moved to a "nicer" house. I live in a very nice neighborhood but not nice enough for him. He's given me all kinds of riding advice - especially "you should have bought a REAL BIKE - a Harley."

    He just sold his and was peeved I didn't even want to look at it. It was a 2001 will almost 11,000 miles on it - he bought it new.

    I have an '11 which like I said is about 2months old - and I have 2,000 miles on it already...plus about 70K on other bikes.

    Sometimes you just feel like not liking people hahaha

    Take care

    I agree with you!

    Regarding the thread about the dude that seems desperate to find a 2012 and pay full MSRP.

    I bought an '11 a couple of months ago - I offered about $200 less than MSRP for a '12 - they wouldn't do it (but WOULD waggle a bit on the Adventure model). They had an '11 with 3 miles on the odometer - I offered 1200 less than what they had on the price tag - the sales kids said "I doubt it but let me ask" and he was back in less than a minute with an "ok" but that is the BASE price not out the door. I countered with "show me what out the door" and that figure was acceptable.

    Saw someone else offer another salesman sticker price for a cruiser "if you'll throw in a helmet" - the sales man acted like he'd been personally injured - but of course they accepted that offer. I didn't think that dude got a very good deal - but to each his own I guess!

    Take care
    Jay
