I barely spent that much on a car, why would I spend that much on a bike? There's no justification for prices like these, unless they are hand-building them like Rolls Royces.
It's one thing to pay a little premium to get something a little nicer, something tangibly better, something you can only get if you spend that premium.
It's another, sad, desperate thing that tears and sadness are made of to spend so much money where the outcome isn't really tangibly better, or the premium approaches the value of the alternatives entirely - it's the same stuff that small penised men who buy and lift big trucks at an expense equalling the truck or buy Corvettes in their 60's are made of.
Same as people who buy Harley's - and ONLY Harley's - just because their friends all buy Harley's, fear of not fitting in... I'll fit in at all costs! I'll impress these guys, just you see! Oh, it brings back painful memories of elementary school, really. Same immaturity.
It's a head shaker every time I see it.
Personally, it would honestly make me not want to be seen on one of these for fear of that perception.
A competent man can recognize value, and maybe even create it.
An incompetent man only knows how to spend money on someone else's values.
...I feel like there's also a quote available and applicable here to parallel the "it's better to keep your mouth closed and let them think you are stupid, than open it and prove them right". Maybe if you replace that with "open your wallet" lol.
Either way, I don't like to go to my humble bed at night thinking of all the dollars I sent to mansioned executives who laugh all the way to their chauffeured rides to their banks, profiting off of "a fool and their money soon part". Just wouldn't help me sleep at night.
