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.
When I told my dealer that I wanted to do business with his dealership because I like the way I was treated he said he would get me the best deal possible. He did. I think my salesman has probably called me 5 times to see how I like the bike. Really good people.
