My 748 finally pissed me off to the point of no return, so I picked up a nice 08 1098 from a private party. My 748 wasnt perfect, but very nice and still a Ducati. So everytime I went to the local dealers, they turned up their noses at me and acted like I wasnt there. Now I pull into the same dealers and they come running to help. I haven't changed. Are these dealers that pretentious? It sickens me that just cause I have taste in bikes that I'm looked at different.
