Harley is just as bad. There was a local dealer here for 40 plus years, Reggie Pink. I bought my first Schwinn from them and then my first Suzuki bike. Harley talked them into moving across the street intprobably heavily financed.
Then Reggie finally closes as the other dealer, either is more aggressive or has better terms than the older dealer.
It really sucks when a franchisor screws his longterm dealer.by opening direct compettion too near his front door.If the older dealer was guilty of anything, it is because they let their parent organization talk them into moving into a new glitzy place while the old one was still doing a more than adequae shop making profits.
