I stopped by Freedom Powersports yesterday and test rode a new BMW.

I hope the business owners see what you wrote and take appropriate action.

I support you 100%.  Those extra agreements piss me off 1000%.
There's one rare dealer that understands that no means no.  One is in Florence beside the river.

If I were looking for a Honda I'd head to Chattanooga and Southern Powersports.

Ya know. If the bike was what you wanted and the price was excellent.  I think I would have just smiled and kept saying no thank you.  Best not to let such DHs get the better of you.

That's good advice.
If we had it to do all over again, we'd probably purchase the bike.
However, as they sing on the radio, "The feeling has passed."

Just saw this topic. Nice to know I'm not the only one who went through this exact same experience. I got my BMW a couple few months before you, and the exact same thing happened. The purchase process was excellent with Stuart, probably best I've experienced to date, really pleased with it all. Until I got back to the finance department and got the same treatment you did. It was basically implied that I was a moron for not agreeing to all the extended coverage. I was literally half a second from walking out, and the only reason I didn't was because I wanted Stuart to get the sale.

I told Stuart how upset I was and that I almost walked out. In my opinion, you get one chance to sell me the extras, but when I say "no thank you", that's it. Move on. If it had been any other situation, I would have walked out of there and not come back.

I also just saw this topic and have to say I had the exact same experience when I bought my Bonneville in November. I absolutely did not have that experience when I bought my Tiger 800 from them in March when I dealt with a different finance person. Matt, if I am remembering his name right, was the salesman for both purchases and could not have been better but the finance guy, whose name I don't remember at all, made the experience horrible.

I have never bought a bike from Freedom but I do stop by there and look around pretty often.  I have noticed a difference there lately.  It used to be that every salesman I talked to (except David Haynes) was new and didn't know much.  More recently they seem to have more experienced and knowledgeable salesmen.  If I was looking for a Honda or Suzuki I'd probably at least give them a chance.  My next new bike will likely be a Yamaha so it's a no brainer for me, I'll be heading over to Allsport.

I went by there today to see about a set of tires for my 2016 R1200 GS. They didn't have any in stock in those sizes. 3-5 business days to order.

How can you be a BMW dealership and not have tires in stock in the sizes used by the top selling bike they make???
