The facts disagree with you, buddy.

I'm pretty certain the 100k price is a placeholder. 100k is extremely cheap. It's cheaper than the 'expensive' mount in MoP (the yak). And they made it sound like it was going to be "hefty" like something we have never seen.
Prices go up each expansion, not down. I was expecting 300-400k. The Yak is roughly 5 times more expensive than the Lich King expensive mount.
Although, I didn't expect people to complain about this....Blizzard could lower the price before the expansion hits if there is enough complaining.
Disclaimer: I am mainly Alliance.
the price isnt reflective of the amount of amenities, but directly reflective of and reinforcing the alliance lost. dont want this to happen in the future? try harder to not let the other team win.
a 10~20k price would completely undermine the lesson to learn with this as its too easy to gather 20k quickly.
Meh, wasn't interested in it based off the looks anyway. Have to say it's a stupid price for it, even though I could purchase a fleet of these if I wanted, if they want that price for an ugly one seater? No thanks blizz.

We have felled demon commanders, cowed the master of death, conquered Old Gods, and stopped the Aspect of Death from destroying the very planet. Now, we need to kill this dude who managed to enslave pudding eating panda's, slobbering sauroks, and hilariously inept hozen. Awesome. Really epic.

the lesson for the collective group, not you specifically, is to not allow the other team to win. sorry you have to pay the price for the action of others, but it was a contest after all.
People angry over the Azeroth Choppers thing? Yup, that's a whole new level of sad.

100k gold? That motorcycle better reach out the computer & give me a handjob at that price.

The contest stated from the VERY BEGINNING that the winning bike would be in the game as a gift to the winning team. The Horde won, regardless of how or why. (Because all of the voting that supposedly made the Horde win by a landslide was ALSO available to the Alliance; It wasn't a one sided thing.) The Alliance didn't have to have their chopper added to the game AT ALL let alone buyable, so 100k is a reasonable price.
Don't want it because it doesn't look good? Here's some good news: You don't automatically get 100k taken out of your account to get it. If you don't want it, don't buy it. It's not faction bias; Horde won so they have a better deal. Alliance didn't so they don't. Simple as that. It's no lesson or anything of the sort. It's how things work in a contest. There was no shaky wording or Horde-only voting techniques; Everything was clear from the beginning and equal. The Alliance lost and gets a worse deal. Done. Over. Nothing more to say.
If people wanted the Alliance bike so bad? Congratulations, you can now get it in game. Yes, it comes with a steep price tag. That's the price for losing the contest. It's just how things go; There is no "Everyone wins" scenario in a contest. Anyone who believed otherwise was fooling themselves.
EDIT:: And for the record: I suspect the Horde bike will be available for the same price for anyone who doesn't log in by September 30th. So there's also that.

All that you have accomplised... all that you have won... yet still you lick the boots of kings.
People are crying about it now, but come WoD, people will realize 100k is nothing.
I think it should have been more expensive to factor in inflation.
most of my previous post was in response to your "blizzard could lower the price". i feel like Blizzard has already given enough to the complainers by putting the Ally bike in at all, they shouldnt get the price lowered too. doing so would totally undermine the contest as i stated earlier.
100k for the Alliance mount while Horde gets theirs free? Yeah Blizz can go !@#$ themselves imo. yeah yeah yeah don't give me that "well Horde won the poll" line. Good for them. But 100k for a single person mount? Yeah I wouldn't even buy it for 50k.
im ok with the Alliance getting their bike too, as long as they have to think about it each time one of them goes to purchase it.. there should be a "yeowww, 100k? dang i hate that, but we had a chance for it to be free and we blew it" moment.
