    This blurb recently appeared in a brochure inserted in a motorcycle magazine by Luggage Company X:

    Our response in our Feb. dealer newsletter:

    Why Giant Loop Supports Powersports Dealers

    Since we launched Giant Loop in 2008, it has been a goal to work with the best dealers in powersports - dealers like YOU who actually take the time to read this. We believe dealers play a vitally important role in our industry: You are not just stores selling bikes, gear, parts and service at a markup. YOU ARE DREAM FACTORIES!

    A lot has changed in the past dozen years, but our belief in and support for powersports dealers has not wavered. We do not view dealers as useless middlemen who simply mark up Giant Loop products (as suggested in a recent consumer motorcycle magazine insert by a luggage and apparel company - see graphic above). By strategically growing, developing and expanding our manufacturing capabilities, Giant Loop has been able to set industry benchmarks for "PREMIUM FEATURES, TOP-SHELF MATERIALS, AND HIGHLY COMPETITIVE PRICES" while offering dealers excellent margins. This is a win-win-win for consumers, dealers and Giant Loop.

    We are here to help dealers sell more and to be more profitable. Your customers choose to shop with you for your product knowledge and expertise, because you have earned a position as a trusted resource — and because you inspire them to see the possibilities, the world of adventure offered by powersports-based outdoor recreation.

    And that adds value not only to our businesses, but to the entire powersports industry.
