That is completely retarded! Dealers generally make more money from service and accessories than bike sales. They are morons for refusing service to anyone regardless of where the bike was purchased! Victory sells an average of 33 bikes a year; there are approximately 300 Victory dealers -- over 50% of motorcycle owners do their own maintenance. So figuring this dealers has been in operation for 10 years he would have sold approximately 330 bikes. Using the 50% mentioned above he would service 165 bikes per year which could easily be cut by another 50% due to short riding seasons. So now you're looking at 82.5 bikes per year. If each of them paid $50 he would do OK until wages, materials, taxes, and utilities were paid. How does this place stay in buisness???
