Motorcycle dealers have been hit really hard by this economy, so if you have a good one close, support them unless you want to see them disappear.
My local dealer has been really good. No marble floors, no fancy coffee machines, just a basic clean shop in a mid rent part of town. I have tried to find a Lexus parked around the back but I think they ride bikes.
Friendly, good service and fair prices.
I like to support shops like that.
