If you are accustomed to that soup to nuts dealer experience move along nothing to see here. You buy a Vic, the smart money is on not expecting much satisfaction after the sale. It does happen that people report good experiences with their dealers, but then people report good dealings with their congressmen too.Just saying.
The good news is statistically you won't need much from the dealer. Pretty damned bulletproof.
Tee shirts? Not so much.
Resale? It is to laugh.
Power? Ample out of the box and a bunch more waiting for some bolt ons. The Freedom motor is among the easiest to massage. The unfortunate part is that there are only a few products that are available to open the barn door on those ponies.
Suspension and handling? When they talk about "Ride one, you'll buy one" this is why. Whatever else Vic and Polaris drop the ball on, they nailed it in the joy of riding department.
But that's just me. YMMV.

We can't help it
We just keep moving
It's been that way since long ago
Since the stone age chasing the great herds
We mostly go where we have to go
