Not The Big Picture

As far as the major repairs are concerned, I've decided that when I'm negotiating the final deal on the bike, if they won't throw in the extended warranty for free, then I'm walkin'. Ya have to draw the line somewhere!
I too bought an extended warranty that covers damn near everything...BUT the big picture is that the warranty will not help you one bit when you are stranded in BFE...I ride off road, solo, miles from communications so when it stops...I must plan on walking out without it or die in place...something to consider.
