I use them for parts when I have to but they never seem to stock anything I need and it takes a week to get it. I can order online or on the phone elsewhere and have it at my door in 2 or 3 days tops usually.
Bottom line is I have very little use for the dealer.

they're friendly.....they're helpful selling you stuff.......

they charge for parts they don't install and labor they don't perform....$90 per hr.

lesson learned.....it's 2019, not 1979

Bought my 883R from the dealer. thought I'd get a red hot deal with no p/x paying cash, no chance! I found them OK & friendly, had the servicing done there while under warranty, expensive but done well.It's got a good diner & Tshirt, bandana etc selection for sale. The old style dealers (for any make of bike) have long since gone, replaced by the "boutique" type shops. For many years the only HD dealer in the UK was Warrs of London. As late as the 70s it was a corner shop type building

I don’t use them to any significant extent.

I test-rode a XR1200 at the Stratstone dealer in 2017 but couldn’t agree a price. Apart from that I occasionally buy t-shirts in my travels but as I don’t do “skulls and flames” I haven’t bought one lately.

Parts I buy online or by personal contacts.

Oh, and “as late as the 70s” was forty-odd years ago! I last went in the “old” Warrs when I bought a 45 in the late 70s....

They're really into what they do and have everyone on point when it comes to customer service. I buy bikes and some parts there, and let them do some service work, especially on my EVO bike.
