I bought the extended warranty.
I have never purchased one before, for some reason I thought it would be a good choice this time, mainly because of what the purpose of the bike will be, and the amount of miles I plan for it, just a piece of mind thing I guess.
I paid around $800 for the top plan, my only grip is, that it does not include tire replacement if damaged for some reason outside of normal wear.
Owning a Buell 1125R brought me to realize, that an extended warranty might be a good idea, all though, it is/was a Buell/H.D. product, that does speak for itself!
Outside of the Buell, an extended warranty would have been useless on all of the other bikes I have purchased new, I hope/assume I wasted my money on this decision, if I am right, I will not be that upset buying a trouble free motorcycle, if I am wrong, I am covered...a total win either way in my opinion!
