Yeah, I sure prefer to build a solid relationship with people doing good business. Sadly, I can't think of a single instance where working with a dealer of any kind (cars or bikes) didn't leave me feeling like I was fighting slimy tactics behind the scenes...for what? A few hundred bucks?

As long as any of the local guys are within $500 of the lowest OTD quote, they will get my business.

Looking forward!
