Ahaa! That's totally understandable.

I worked at a dealership, some time ago, and I'm still dismayed at some of the crap they pulled. The owners were the shady ones. I felt bad for the salesmen who were straight-forward with their deals, only to have the finance department or owners wreck the sale and these guys' reputations.

It looks like you guys got a nice bike, in the end. I bought my Tiger used (3 months old), too. Even after paying the shipping from NC, I still saved ~$4400 over new (I have the original sales invoice).
