Maybe it's just me, but when some puke in a car asks me "How much did that cost?" I really want to slam him for the manners his momma didn't teach him.
I'm thinking I oughta just respond with "How much you got?", but mostly I just shake my head and drive away.
Anyone? Anyone..? Buehler?

How about...

It was an excellent value when compared to other bikes in this category.

(Isn't that what Ferris Bueller would say?)

I have had several people ask what my Kingpin cost. Now, if it where someone rolling down the window of their cage asking I would say that would be rude. On the other hand if it's someone who is asking questions outside a Starbucks who says they ride something else and is genuinely interested in what Victory is about, I don't have a problem if they ask.
Tact is an elusive skill for some people.

Perhaps I'm a little different. I never mind talking about bikes, my bike, bikes in general.
Of course - it all boils down to "How much?" Whether it's a bike, a divorce, or a vacation.
I never mind talking about the price - Victory is a good value - I like them to know.

I'm with you. Depending upon the tone of the one asking, I'm not offended by the question. It's a little nosy but I assume it is an honest question and give them an idea. There is a lot of interest in bikes and lots of people that wish that they could ride. Even if the questioner is an jerk, I try not to be one too.

To a biker or a friend I would tell them. To a cager that didn't know a Honda from a Harley, I would reply "too much".

If I'm talking shop with another biker, that's one thing. But for someone to drive alongside in a car and blurt out the onequestion is purely lacking in class, in mny mind.

I'd say...

If you want to ride a nice, new, warrantied, reliable bike like this...it's gonna be 450/month for the rest of your life...Oh yeah...tack on a 100 more for the Ins!

Just a thought...

smile and say as much as I'm enjoying the ride, reliability, comfort and looks, 'it's priceless'

To me its not the question, but the tone & attitude of the person asking, If their just making conversion or curious thats fine w/me but if their being a jerk, then screw'em

I would never ask some stranger, without a certain amount of preamble, or conversation beforehand. Even then I'd be reluctant to ask, because it JUST AIN'T MY BUSINESS!!!
If I really need the answer, I would ask where I could BUY one.
It must be an old school thing.
