Something missing from this discussion is the dealer's need to make a profit. If they never make a profit, they will not be there when you need them. Based on my recent discussion with a dealer, they may sell about 25 Vics each year. Let's say they have been selling that many since Vic first started, 15 years back. That means the local total is only about 375 bikes. How many parts can be profitably stocked for such a small bike population? If they have the tiny margin that on line stores have, it won't even pay the utility bills. I hate to pay more than I should but these guys need to stay in business too.
