Tips for Victory Dealers
OK...this is more a rant than a bash....BUT, last week I stopped by my Victory dealer...who sells Victory, Yamaha, Honda, Kawasaki, etc. walked in...not a hi, get the hell out.....nothin'. Looked around a little, then left without buying anything...half because I was pissed about the indifference.
Today, a friend and I did a 300 mile round trip. Didn't have a destination, but ended up at Boulsberg Harley, outside State College, PA. Nope....didn't see Jerry Sandusky!
If you are in the area and looking for a cool dealership to visit....this is the place. It's a compound, with multiple buildings and a driving/learners course. In the main building, along with all the typical HD stuff is a collection of antique motorcycles hanging from the ceiling.....of course HD's, but also Indians, BMW's, Aerial's, sidecars, antique race cars..etc., etc. Very, very cool......and when we walked in the door....a pretty young thing behind the counter gave us a big "Hello, let me know if you need any help"... And a smile. Wow, what a novel idea....friendliness!
So, it's worth the trip if you are in the area. Most Vic dealers need to take a lesson there. The dealership close to me has great prices and selection, but that's where it stops.
So why do I rant.....because Vic's are great bikes, and they deserve a great sales experience. That goes for buying a bike, a set of spark plugs, clothing, or getting your bike serviced. Anyone want to front me the $$$$ to open a dealership. I guarantee I'll work hard to make it a world class operation, and a fun experience for anyone who comes by. After all that stuff is infectious....and guarantees success.
