Dodging the Roadkill: Relationships – The Home Dealership

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – One of the first things I learned when I started searching for a motorcycle, was that it’s not like  buying a car.  You don’t just play this “back and forth,” “cat and mouse” game with the dealership.  

When you’re ready to buy a motorcycle, you had better know what you’re talking about and know what you’re willing to pay for it.  The game is to get as many “add-ons” as you can.  To strike a happy medium.

I always knew I was going to buy my bike from my local Harley-Davidson dealership, because I wanted to support local businesses, plus I wanted to establish relationships that I could depend on to help me become a better biker.
