Support your dealers

I know the dealers prices are always higher than a researched internet price but consider this, the limited number of trials bike dealers across the U.S. will continue to diminish if you keep buying based on the cheapest price from people you don't even know on the internet! Do you think the internet guy is going to answer questions about problems you have with your bike or parts that you buy from him? Chances are, you can't even talk to the guy.

Let your dealer know you are in tune with internet prices and you don't appreciate being gouged but you understand reasonable markup. Let him know you are willing to support him assuming he doesn't over price his stock. The fact that you pay sales tax from a dealer also ups the price. Don't worry it won't be long and purchases on the internet will be taxed too. It's in the works. It's obvious that the dealer has more overhead and must cover it's cost. When you buy something from your dealer, look him in the eye, thank him, shake his hand and let him know you appreciate him being there for you. Maybe the next time you need him he'll still be there.

I am not a dealer, just a concerned rider hoping to continue riding and continue being supported by my various dealers. Hope ya'll will do the same.

You know this post brings up a good point about trials dealers , its a special sport and ive owned 1000 dirtbikes in my life and ive never seen a trials dealer ? Im sure if a dealer was close to an area that had trials competition it would be profitable to be a dealer , I know motocross dealers make a lot but thats a much larger sport ,,,
