I am inferring that the bike you looked at did not work out. What happened? You have us all invested in your purchase now

The seller wanted to push back the time to 5pm.

So I arrived early and Flyboymedic showed up on time.

The seller was no where to be found.
I texted him via FB chat and he said he was still stuck at work. Then he left the facebook chatroom. He had marked the bike as sold 7 hours prior to that time. I assumed he was sure I was going to buy it.
So there was no way to communicate with him anymore after that.
The AD was gone because it was marked as sold and he left the chatroom.

Flyboymedic and I chatted a little. Nice guy.
Thanks again for willing to help a stranger beginner!

I am now looking to get a new bike through Rollick program. I will see what kind of discount they offer.

That seams like a fair price given you're new and presumably young.

I've been with Progressive for years and swear by them. I totalled a bike and they took care of it quick, even gave me more than what I paid for it.

Also check out Costco if you have a membership. They have a dealer discount.

Good tip^^^^^^^^

Bought my last 2 Kawasaki's through Costco, very nice discounts.

Just bought another car with CC a few weeks ago.

I think Costco has stopped the PowerSport program.

If you are not dead-set on a Yamaha, I've bought my last bike from Hillsboro Motorsports and they tend to have new-old stock with prices can be hard to beat. Here is a portion of the inventory that might suit you.

I have been going back and forth between R3 and Ninja 400.
Whoever offers better discount will get my business.
The reviews are good for both bikes. So I am willing to start on either one.
I contacted them now. And I am Waiting for an offer.
Thank you.

Buy a used one, IMO. There are a few good R3 listed for sale.

That's the problem, he tried and the asshole flaked on him and sent him on a wild goose chase. I suspect it was a scam, but it may that the bike was simply sold out from under him. The good part is that I was able to provide him some guidance, advice, and encouragement, along with a welcome to the community. The used bike market is silly right now because of all the stimulus checks and demand for anything outdoor related. For a bike that's not much less $$$ than a brand new one without all the BS, I'd buy new also if I didn't know what to look for and not knowledgeable. Unfortunately, the picken's are slim and not a lot of people wanting to sell at the height of winter. Of course there will be more bikes in the spring, but the prices aren't going to be coming down to a reasonable level anytime soon.
