A bit of a setting for the story. I live in Norway, I'm Polish though. And as friendly of a country this is, there are quite a few xenophobic assholes. Bell curve rule I guess.
I decided to buy the new water cooled GS. So I sent emails to several dealerships asking for a price calculation on the setup I wanted, the estimated delivery date and how much deposit should I pay to get in line for the bike.
Several dealerships answered professionally in a mater of hours. One responded after 3 or 4 days(email by the manager of the dealership):
Hello, first of all to decide the size of the deposit we need to know where do You come from and where do You live.
