So I have recently decided I will be purchasing my first motorcycle, and before the questions start yes I have taken the safety course and am confident in my riding skills to the point where I feel i can be safe with my own bike. After some research and then coming upon a gem of a deal in my eyes I have decided on a new 2007 Honda interceptor VFR 800. ( http://www.totalmotorcycle.com/photos/2007models/2007-Honda-InterceptorVFR800FIa.jpg link is a pic of the bike for those interested).
Now heres my dilemma, I am finished with school and currently working full time, not making a ton of money but enough to afford this purchase, and still be saving money each month at the same time. I live at home and have been wanting a bike for a long time and feel now is the time. The dilemma is that when I went to the dealership today and they cannot finance me because I have only been with my full time job for 3 months since i got out of school, and its not enough for continuous employment i was told. I have talked to my mom (yes im resorting to that) about cosigning and she is willing depending on certain circumstances, which is awesome, and i have proven myself reliable in that she knows i can make the payments, but i feel bad asking her for this and i dont know why. How do you guys feel about having someone cosign on a bigger purchase? is it acceptable as I know i will have no problems with the biil? Dont know why im posting this but its been bugging me all day.
