Whats the Future?

In the process of looking for a bike for my GF I found a new Husaberg dealer in my area.
They are blowing out some bikes at cost I guess just to get their name out there. I was pretty excited at first because it was a smoking deal, but when I put some thought behind it and looked at who was selling them I changed my mind.
They are a very big motorcycle shop, you might even call them a wholesaler. Volume is where they make the money. In this case I wonder where the people who buy the blow out Bergs are going to get their service. I know as a first time Berg owner I had lots of little problems and worries and it was very nice to have the small shop, long time Berg riders and owners to back me up.
Husaberg is getting more maintream now due to KTM and the new models taking alot of press. Whats the future. I mean sure I want Husaberg to be sucessful and profitable but at what cost? I like the small shop, exclusive non maintream scene. I also realised I am more than willing to pay the extra $500 to support the small shop where I bought my first bike, because God knows they have put that much time in with phone calls and emails.

As far as the market is concerned there is room for all types. I think if you have a dealer that treats you right you should deal with him. On the other hand there are people that only care about the bottom line. That is where your other outfit will prosper.
Example. I usually buy my bikes locally. I do most of my own work so for the most part I dont need them for service. When I need accessories I usually go to BOSS. Why? Because he is good to the site, carries good inventory and gives good customer service. The shop where I bought the bike, not so much. Win, win situation.
As long as Husaberg is a quality and desireable product I think everyone will prosper.

On a side note it would seem that the popularity of the new bike has increased the desireability of the old bikes as well. They seem to hold there value alittle better and are easier to sell.

It"s all good.

Hey Brad, dont mash, just go to your preferred shop, tell them that the volume shop down the road will do it cheaper, and that you dont want to push them but if they can match it, you'll give them your business and your hard earned$, if they cant match it, then just let em know, how you appreciate their service and all that, and that you will continue to bring it to them for their after sale service.

odds on you will end up with the deal you want, with the shop you like, and you will have developed a good relationship with the proprietor - dont talk business with the shit kickers.

I did the same with the Kawa shop I used to use when I swiched to Berg, just to let them know how much I appreciated their service, and that I would stick with them for parts etc wherever I could, and they all but roll out the red carpet every time I call up or drop into the shop.

Azza.
