Default Victory apparel purchases

I noticed my local Victory Dealer is asking $29.95 for Victory ballcaps that the Victory website is asking $19.95. Anyone else experiencing dealers jacking up the price like that?

Yep, my wife and I found a Tshirt at ours that was $36. But that's why they're called" stealerships".

IMHO I think that the dealerships should be trying to get branding out into the public through ball caps and t shirts at a great price.

They should give one of each away with the purchase of a new bike.

My dealer gave a t shirt to me when i took delivery. Other than that the prices are higher than online but you also have to understand holding the product paying the staff to sell and ring it up light bills etc. I imagine the overhead is the deciding factor here

I agree. Every other guy i see is wearing a harley shirt or hat. You would think getting the Vic name out there would help business. My local dealers pretty reasonable on shirt and hat prices. They gave me and the ol lady a helmet and shirt when i purchased my bike. Ive purchased a hat ($24.99 i think) and 2 or 3 shirts (about the same price as the hat). The jackets and other accessories are kinda high though

I rode harleys for thirty years and yes a few free shirts when I bought a new bike. Vic didn't have one T shirt to give me. I have over two hundred harley T shirts and I have vowed not to get into the buying game again. I would trade all my T shirts for white ones screw giving them free advertising.

I guess I'm one of the lucky ones. I got a free shirt when I bought my bike with the Dealership name on it of course. Also I bought my wife a hat there since it was the same price as on line. Seems like all of their prices on shirts and hats are the same as the online MRSP so at least they aren't jacked up.

Dealer gave me, and my dad a free hat when I bought my bike, and I get 50% off any clothing/gear purchase I want. And the girl told me that that offer was good when ever I want to use it !!
