Well after a few bike run and a couple bike nights while talking with other Victory owners and them agreeing with me on the sales part of this dealer but them saying the back part (service) was good.
I had a chance to go theit after not being able to find the imformation I needed and was very please with the service dept. even after the were told about me. Very friendly and helpful.
It is funny that the service writer (managers) are great people while the front part of the dealers I have had contact with are not worth even dealing with (IMO)
A Team and Thunder do have great service managers but havent used the service so dont know and as for the trust etc. of the sales NEVER

The general manager at A Team was helpful and did not use any high pressure tactics while I was checking out the 2013 models. Did you see that crazy Indian that he has? It is red and dressed up like crazy. I did not speak to parts dept. Did go in back and checked out the service department, lots of impressive bikes and cars back there. Heard they do have a good tech named Ray that works in back.

There is another Victory dealer in Las Vegas, RideNow Powersports on Rancho Dr. and they sell everything (boats, jet skis, quads, etc) except Harley and Suzuki, but I've never been there.

When out of warranty, I like using Green Valley Motorcycle repair on Sunset in Henderson. Honest place and has always done a good job for me.

Is Bill Biler still the GM? If so he's awesome, I went there with my wife and car nut daughter when we were there on vacation and he gave us the grand tour. The place is like a motorcycle/car museum!

At that time they were working on a Victory to run at Bonneville Salt Flats. And the tech that was building it had won a couple of biker build-offs.

Apart from the fact that they missed an opportunity to sell me a Hammer, I have nothing but good things to say about them. I gave them my number and email and told them I wanted a Hammer, well they never called me with an update, so I did some searching on my own and found a Hammer in CA.
But I go there all the time for service and parts. I live 5mins away from the Ridenow on Rancho that cotton mouth mentioned but I make the 30min trip all the way to A team whenever I need anything for my Vic.
Ridenow seems to give a feeling of "we don't need or want your money" so I never go there for service, rarely order parts from them and they are too good for my money so they have missed opportunities to sell me bikes.

From my motorcycle buying adventures in Vegas it seems as if they have so many sales that they don't want to put any effort into selling a serious customer a bike. I live in Vegas but I always end up buying my bikes from AZ or CA because Vegas dealers are nonchalant about making a sale.

Bill is still there. Here he is breaking in a new Vision

TJdehya, I don't understand the poor attitudes at many of the businesses in the Las Vegas area. My cohorts and I have often ended up spending many thousands of dollars out-of-state (UT & AZ) on various purchases with a place that appreciates our business.
You have some really good vids on your channel, saw your spill down by the dam, and your magic act on your Hammer. Cool

I think they get so many sales that they prefer when customers come in the store and beg for the honor of buying a bike from them. While the neighboring states are like the rest of the country and they value their customers even though the wont be getting aftermarket sales and service from an out of state customer.
I'm glad u like the vids, I enjoy editing them more than making them but I haven't had much time lately to spend making a good vid. cheers

I lived in Vegas for 16 years, during the HD and Chopper days, with prices through the roof, and the Big money all around sales were easy. However I have bought 2 Harleys for LVHD at below MSRP with accessories and was able to do that as I walked in with cash, NO financing needed, that makes a big difference.
A Team , formly Arlen Ness sold Choppers that were indeed expensive, but that market has died. Victory was a side show. Plus the motorcycles were priced higher than MSRP , so while I like the folks there, they are expsensive and living in the past as afr as pricing goes, BUT They are a good dealer and after living in Tx for 8 months and dealing with the dealers here, A Team looks better and better all the time. They should be awarded exclusively all the Victory sales in Las Vegas, Ridenow is another Honda Mega multi state dealer in Bed with Polaris and aquired the Victory through that route.

I've had pretty good luck down at Ride Now. The salesman that I delt with was an old guy named Breeze. He new a lot about bikes and used to ride HD's. If you get one of the young guys they are the ones that give you the feeling that they dont care.IMHO. When I go there for service Breeze makes it a point to come over and shake my hand and see if i'm having any problems with the bike or not. If they had more sales and service guys like that it would be a slam dunk. The mech., Brian, is a great guy too. He will take the time to come out and listen to you if you have any problems with the bike. They need more mech. like him in the back.

Hey I just did a google search on this dealership because I just left it about an hour ago. I'm not buying a victory, a moto guzzi instead, and these two people i've quoted was my experience there.

Was the shittiest dealership experience ever in my life lmao. This dude comes up to me like these asian ladies on the southpark clip I linked as if i'm fucking him in my asking prices meanwhile not knowing the correct MSRP (says 13,900 when i KNOW its 12,240 refusing my saying that it wasn't 13900) and acting like i'm the biggest jew in the world for getting him down to the initial asking price of 13,350 that I got from a LA dealership.

Dude talked like Vince Vaughn fast talking so it was extremely annoying and tried to BS me about how hes the only people who will work on this bike here and how they are the only people who will bring the bike to get fixed there if something goes wrong for free. I know this is BS, I have AAA full service which covers motorcycles so theres that, and there is a place in town that does the warranty work for this bike and all italian bikes in general assoiated with pro italia in LA where I got my initial quote from. He claims they don't exist and claims the dealership I was quoted at "must be going out of business" since their initial offer was so low. Which, BTW, is higher than MSRP and they are trying to expand into Vegas to sell Ducatis.

The same happened at the Subaru dealership here, same type of fast talking and lying douchebags who wont work on a price at all. Meanwhile I go to LA and I get some nice lady whose calm and reasonable whose initial offer was 1000s less. Never buy **** in Las Vegas, the people here are con artists.

Its like these people think i'm 18 years old and an idiot and as if the internet doesn't exist. Seriously this is 2012, i know what people are paying because I have google and forums.

Ya don't buy at this dealership or ANY Vegas dealership. Every car dealership I went to is the same thing. Back in Chicago I have relatives in the dealership business and worked at one for a while and ive NEVER see people like this lmao.

Like the guy I talked to who was the sales manager was literally really mad at my trying to haggle. Seriously, he was angry and said that I shouldn't come back there ever. Really over haggling?

Just thought you guys should know.

Hi all,

At Ridenow, It' is all who you talk to. I've 2 bike and a quad from them and only talk to a couple of sales guys. Breeze is awesome, really nice guy and always remembers you. If you need parts, talk to Hoz. He is hands down the best parts guy I have ever dealt with. When I went home on mid-tour from Korea (about 7 months), went down there just to say hi, and they gave me a great deal on my Cross Country.

I am working a trade deal with A Team right now. So far so good, it's hard to find a dealer to give any money for my Hammer on a trade for a CC. A little BS going on but that's normal, trying to SELL me on a bike I already want. I just laugh at em..
My local Vic dealer won't even take it on trade. I checked most dealers in Ca. Some will take it but at a low ball rate. Now HD is different story they offer more on trade than any Vic dealer. I just don't want a glide, yet.
