    Anyone have recommendations on good wny Honda motorcycle dealerships? I'll be ordering a new 2018 AT and figure the price being about the same wherever I go, the choice comes down to who has the best customer service, particularly who has the best mechanics and service department. Thanks

    I've always had pretty good luck at Canandaigua Motorsports. I usually do my own wrenching, but have found the parts and sales people to be very helpful and the service dept. is good with with inspections and other stuff.

    Thanks Ken, Canandaigua Motorsports is in the running. I went there to see their AT in the showroom a few months ago.

    If you want a test ride go down to Arkport Cycles, they are decent to deal with and allow test rides on anything they have. Bought a few bikes from Hollink out in Spencerport too but that was years ago and I dealt with "Wild Bill". Not sure if he is still dealing with customers but they were always more than fair with me and gave me a surprising amount on my trades. Their are enough Honda dealers around Rochester to shop around for the best price and the shopping is always fun.

    It was kind of strange. I could not get one locally in 2016, so I bought from a dealer outside Philly. Last season, CNY Powersports didn't sell theirs. The market around here is pretty slow lately.

    I sat on the AT Arkport Cycles has but that place is so Harley oriented I didn't feel they would be great at servicing it afterwards.

    If they can work on Harleys the Honda should be no problem

    Harley is where the $$$ are, but I have known the owner for years and he is the best and most honest person you could ever meet, not sure how involved he is now, his daughter is running the place now and the reputation has always been great.

    I would think that a Honda needs a lot less working on.

    Does anyone here have experience with O'Neill Sales dealer just south of Rochester? Looks like they sell KTMs. Not looking for service issues but they have a bike available that I am interested in maybe purchasing. https://www.oneillsales.com/

    I have purchased small parts from them, but have not had service. Small family owned shop. Nice folks. They focus on dirt bikes, but did have a few of the big bikes in stock.

    See if they are willing to deal.

    Hi Rob. They seem to be closed today for the Holiday. They have a 2017 big bike in stock. I think I'll take a drive over there this week and see what they can offer. Thanks. You and Rose have a nice holiday time off.

    Ahhh. Looks like they have quite an assortment of leftover big bikes. I have to say, the 1290 Super Adventure is the finest motorcycle I have ever owned.

    I like my KTM too, though the GS is the finest bike I have ever owned. I'm looking at that 2017 1290 SDR they say they have.

    Nice! Let me know how you do. Watching the Pikes Peak HC the last two years was pretty impressive.
