Re: Support you Dealer

My understanding is that the MHR will be shipped to the dealer selected by the buyer. The dealer gets the usual setup fee (probably not enough, granted), and no doubt can get a little free advertizing if he persuades the customer to let the MHR sit in the showroom a few days before it's ridden away. And the dealer is spared paperwork and flooring costs.

Does anyone know how Kawasaki's Internet endeavor is working out? The way it was presented, you ordered direct from Kawasaki but picked you items up at a dealer. So the dealer got at least a little markup, and didn't have to go through the hassle of ordering and stocking.

But, I agree with the idea of supporting the dealer. At that, the internet is no worse than things that go on already. Most flagrant example, and something I personally HATE to see, is folks who try on helmets at a dealer, then order the one that fits, for 10% less, from a mail order house. People who do that s*** should have some broken glass stuck in their "bargain" helmet liners, as far as I'm concerned.
