That's because only complete cunts make lowball offers, and most people don't have time to be entertaining complete cunts.

Title of the post states 'UK dealers', not private sellers

Nice try... but you quoted this:
And it's even worse if the eejit on the phone is asking a private seller "What's your best cash price?" What the fuck else are they going to pay with, Rancheros?
And replied with this:
Cheque? Bank draft? Money order? Credit card?
Try again...

No, I go to view the bike, and if it's worth the asking price, I pay it.

That's the good thing about dealing with UK sellers, and the reason UK sellers won't budge much on the price, because they know what the bike is worth, and advertise it at that price, and they don't lie about the condition. The problem here is the vast majority of sellers lie about the condition of the bike. You go to buy a minter, and it's a ball of shite when you get there. That's the norm here, and rare as fuck in the UK.
