    After putting all RE NA dealers gleaned from the American, Canadian and Mexican RE websites into Garmin BaseCamp for Mac ver. 4.7.0 running City Navigator North America NT ver. 2019.2 (Canada, USA & Mexico), here is the end result. N.B. If I choose to buy a Himalayan, it is likely that I will maintain the file; the opposite is also true.

    ADVrider does not enable attaching the Excel spreadsheet that has the present (and some former) dealers' names , addresses, phone numbers, email addresses and URLs, all of which I included in the .gpx file. PM me with an email address if you want the Excel file (includes coordinates) to print a copy to put under your seat or load into your phone.

    Attached is the updated (as of 13 August 2018) .gpx file for your GPS. Help yourself. The file can also be found at POI Factory.

    At work we at 100% failure/warranty rate on our new toro machines. Enfield is much better than that in direct comparison. I would prefer to by new from someone who cared

    Greetings

    I've been in the Continential Divide area of Montana sinse late May.
    Helena stopped selling RE a couple of year ago. The owner dropped them because RE was "getting too big for its breeches." This was Poet MC. I did not get to ask him what he meant cause he was busy with customers. Maybe later. But I highly doubt he will go back from his personality.

    It looks bad in Missoula too.
    One place had never heard of RE. Mavericks said they were doing some talking, but they sale Truimph. Doubtful. Maybe if the new 650 twins are around $7,000.
    Another place basically scoffed at the idea of selling them. I tried to tell them about the new dealerships, but their sales guy said it's more like 17 actual places that sell the bike.

    ____
    This tells me Milwaukee HQ is in no hurry to fell this huge gap in the Rockies. A two year warranty is not so great when you are 550 miles away. Portland, which the guy said sold parts.

    Fortunately, the other MCs that compete with the Himi can be found in the area.
    Versys X 300
    GS
    RALLY (non ABS in Missoula and Helena).

    I think an entrepreneur could clean up well in Missoula if they sold RE.
    These big places that have been around for decades will not make it so.

    Greetings,

    I went by Poet (Helena, MT) today and they were not as busy, so I got to talk to them about why they stopped caring RE.

    Basically, RE wanted them to start selling too many MC that they had room for and RE dropped them.

    So RE did this about 2 years ago, and now they are ramping up the Himalayan and the 650 twins which are supposed to improve reliability and performance.

    That is like down sizing your Naval Armada while up sizing your Marines (Infantry) who attack the beach head.:scratch

    Poor vision?

    364 miles from Missoula to Bosie.
    548 miles from Missoula to Portland. Sales tax is the same. $0.

    ___
    As posted before, the Missoula MC dealerships do not seem interested in picking up RE.

    It looks like a brand new small shop may not have the floor space to attract RE.

    I wonder what the smallest RE dealership is?

    I think the new wave of RE MCs will sale very well.
    I'm not sure if the entrepreneurs are not seeing the great potintial or if RENA is hurting themselves.

    RENA didn't drop anybody. When they bought the exclusive distribution rights from the old importer the existing franchise agreements became void.
    They invited the dealers to apply for new franchises. I heard that RENA had higher expectations at first than the old importer and some dealers weren't willing to belly up to the bar and some wanted to but couldn't. My local dealer only stocked one bike at a time. No mystery why he didn't sell many. Some dealers were smart enough to realize what gutting and overhauling the old plant and building two more brand new ones would mean and held fast. Triumph of Seattle is one of them. It's working out good for them.

    I have no idea what kind of volume an RE dealer could push in Montana. They'd probably have to be a multi line bike dealer or have RE plus something else going for 'em like scooters or UTV's or food or guns or coffee to make a go of it. FWIW there's a bike & coffee shop in Portland does pretty good for themselves. That stuff works if the location is right.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    Spokane to Missoula is just under 200 miles.
    That could be the Inland Pacific NW Big Time dealership.

    I think in 2019 when the twins come out, RE will get more attention.

    I'm amazed at how little a lot of these dealerships do not keep their head to the ground.
    Hell, many folk who work there do not even ride.

    I've been to Seattle and Portland.

    Portland just got Royal Enfield. This spring. they are a HD place.

    They had to bite the bullet also and get them too.

    Keep your eyes peeled for Maverick Motorcycle in Missoula,MT.

    I was told they will start selling them in January.

    This will fell a huge void in the Northern Rockies.

    I can't post for the 650cc twins,but I'm very impressed with the Himalayan from my demo rides.
