Default One less Victory dealer in NC

Hey guys,
Just got a letter from the Victory dealership in Jacksonville, NC. They are no longer going to be a Victory/Polaris dealer and now I have a 2 hour drive to pick up parts/get service until January when my warranty expires! I haven't really needed them for much, but it was nice for the fuel pump and saddlebag lock recalls to get the work done relatively close. More just posting this for general knowledge and to whine a bit...

Any reason why they are dropping the line?

When I bought my Vic the closest dealership was 2 hours away but that didn't stop me from buying one.

I got the same letter/email. Sad to see them go. They are still open for service work; just not an authorized Victory Dealer anymore. They dropped Triumph a couple of months ago.

Dealerships do not drop a line of bikes because they are selling well. Slow sales and demands from Polaris probably both contributed.

Most times when dealers lose their franchise it's because of bad business practices....AKA, Not paying bills... And the companies are reluctant to send them bikes for fear of them going bankrupt...

They won't wave back to you....
