I looks like Polaris would have learned that with the Victory dealerships. It got to the point that I had to go 400 plus miles to a Victory dealership a one time. Because the shop here and one a hundred miles away closed down. Plus many of the Indian dealerships also were obligated to work on Victory's. The one here now agreed to continue to service Victory's. I wished like hell the Triumph dealership would have not closed down here. They have some really great motorcycles these days.I remember when Polaris/Indian made what a lot of people believe were overbearing demands on Indian dealerships with minimum separated floor space for different models and accessory gear. It's no wonder so many have closed when those shops only sold 10 or 12 Indian bike per year. Not self supporting at all. I suspect Polaris has found those shops they own in AU and NZ are in the same boat.
Had Polaris been far more accommodating here in the USA they would have a much larger support base throughout the country. There was a shop within 3 miles of my place and another about 90 miles away. Both have shutdown. I don't even know where the next closest shop is. Probably Phoenix; 200 or miles away.
It would almost be better if Polaris had never invented Victory Motorcycles. At least then we wouldn't know what we're missing.Dealership in Brisbane are great, always have been with me, and I never bought my bike from them.
Be a real shame if they get shut down
What a load of crap Bbob, geeze youre a drama queen mate!It would almost be better if Polaris had never invented Victory Motorcycles. At least then we wouldn't know what we're missing.
You're as dumb as a rock dude. You completely missed the point. You couldn't be any dumber if someone took the rest of your 2mm brain away. Idiot.What a load of crap Bbob, geeze youre a drama queen mate!
Im missing nothing, got both my Vics and keeping em.
Victorys the best bike and always will be.
I bet they jerk the plug on Indian too.So my take is, if they shift it over to "independent" dealerships, when they pull the plug they dont take it on the chin. The independent dealer will. When they came out they made dealerships, set aside "separate" space for Inian. The dealer in Lakeland remodeled an entire building they had for storage and service to display Indians. About a year later they jerked the plug on Victory.
