Default Full throttle salute ha

Well i am all for military discount dontnget me wrong. I served my country time and time again. I got forced tonget out. Just cause i didnt retire or in thenguard doesnt mean that veterans dont deserve this also.
Everyone has their story but just think victory should realize that there are more veterans that get overlooked everyday then people realize.

Please let me know your thoughts.

I agree that the program should include anyone that was honorably discharged from any US Military service but unfortunately it's not my money to spend.

There still is hope for you though; Victory parts aren't cheap and service isn't much better. If you dealer is pro-Military he/she would probably be willing to give you 10-15% off future purchases and service for as long as you remain a customer. This could easily exceed the $1000 that Victory is offering if the discount is applied every time you visit the shop.

I talked withmmy dealer. He called his vic rep. He said he is sure he can get it pushed through. I did a little complaining. Ha ha
So ifni get it I will be happy about it. So curiousnthough. Is it just a grand off the bike basically?

That would be awesome.

The way the offer reads may not match the way it is used. I got $500 marked off and a backrest ($495) as part of the deal. When the Military Salute was approved I had to use that as dealership cash so I bought some goodies with it.

Also if "forced out" means medically separated, medically retired, high year tenure or service posturing you should be able to qualify because all of these equal forced retirement.

Default Special deals that aren't

I'm not a Vet and don't want to hijack this threat, but I've not been happy with all those emails Victory sends about special deals. Not a Vet, can get that discount. Ten inches of snow this week, can't get out to trade for a CCT and get the extended warrantee that expires today. Went to the International Motorcycle show in Minneapolis on February 4, got a coupon for $1,000 in accessories for apparal if I buy in two weeks..... I live three hours North of Minneapolis. Do they really think I'm going to be able to ride the 75 miles to my nearest dealer my mid February? Tons of offers, none that are genuine. I'm starting to think I should buy Yamaha Venture number five, five year unlimited milage warrantee for everyone. Don't know of any special offers on the Yamaha, but at least I'm not feeling abused by a bunch of empty offers.

Mrninj, thankyou for your service. Nothing personal but you sound like they owe you a bike. 1000 dollars off thats it? Take it or leave it, but dont act like that's not a good gesture by vic.

It's pretty smart marketing really. Even BMW does it for American service people and retirees and they are Germans. Think about it, most service people are young, making pretty good money these days, retire young, have the gov't hustling jobs for them when they get out, free school, medical care etc. IOW, they should have lots of disposable income and a long time to blow it. Good group to get to identify with their brand. Even if they get a break on the bike they will still likely buy lots of high margin goodies.

Best of all, it doesn't cost Victory a nickle as they just pass the cost on to the rest of us working dolts to subsidize those discounts.

Ball breaker. I didn't mean to come off that way at all. Just irritates me a little. I understand they don't owe me anything. I volunteered to join. I signed the dotted line on my own. Just think they should rethink that the vets also should have a stake into this discount is all.

Hmmm. The dealer near me led me to believe that it was available to all current or prior military, retired or not.
