I feel sorry for the franchisees that have built their multi-million dollar facilities once real market forces take over. They have such a huge nut to crack, I wouldn't be surprised if you could find numerous dealerships for sale. The only ones to survive will be the 'old-timers' that paid their buildings off during the heyday. I have a new BMW bike store near me that is beautiful-but, the owner is struggling with a slow market and significant debt load. The manufacturers are pushing for these palaces, but as with the automotive, there will be many that simply fold or be bought out by the liquidators, er, consolidators like AutoNation and the like.
