Went to dealer today

So today i went and looked at the klr in black and blue and a klx250 in a black and gree and i loved them. The klx is like a small motocross bike and the klr is like a giant motocross bike. Im 5'9" and idk if i will fit on the klr. I didnt ge to sit on them because at the dealership not a single salesman approached me. Maybe i should have approached them and asked. But i have allways felt that this certain dealer is not the greatest and allways trying to pull one over

Was talking to a cousin yesterday,He said last year he went to a Honda shop with intentions of looking at and possibly buying a Gold Wing.Same story,no one approched him and he just left.Harley Dealer was more then willing to help him out with the purchase of a real nice Electra Glide.I wonder how many sales these guys lose out on when they don't greet and offer to help each and every one who comes through the door.

At 5'9" you and I are the same height.I considered lowering my KLR at first,but after a few thousand miles I am not so sure i need to.32" inseam and I can't flat foot it but my toes touch the ground.

They have been in business for at least 15 years or so and i have bought parts for a dirtbike before and a pair of gloves for mountain biking and they were the same. I guess they hope for older people to prey on for thier money (im 24) or they just let thier products do the selling. The bikes were so mice though. I am even more in love now then i have been the last few months of looking at them online. The new model is better looking than i thought

i know who they are but have never been there. seems many dealers around town a just like them. i have been in donelsons north probably 100 times and have only been approached less than a handful those. but if they don't want your money somone else will.
there is a place in o'fallon il called Elli's cycles they have the blue/silver/black on special for $4999, saw it on craigslist. I have also had good service at big st. charles.
