    Cool Dealer Gone!

    The other day I went to see what my local dealer had on the floor and as I walked in there were no Aprilias on the floor, just custom chopper types. Sad but true. So no new bikes to look at.

    Sorry to hear that. We all like our dealerships, as without them we would be all "mail-order junkies" And as you stated where would we go to finger-print the latest toys.....

    Yet to give up on Aprilia and sell custom choppers, sounds like a last ditch effort to stay alive, but most likely that will fail also.....
    Today the way to make a million dollars with a dealership is to start with 2 million the year prior.....Sad times for many....

    "no refunds on parts we ordered WRONG!"

    You actually went through ALL THAT with the same dealer? Frick, any dealership I go to only has one chance.
