Well.Regardless of the response, I think we all know why the question was posed. If people buy new bikes on line then donít complain about the lack of dealers then that is 100% fine..But.Iím suggesting that starving some poor bastard close to death, then beating the living tripe out of him by cutting his margin to the bone, before strolling in and stealing the eyes out of his dying corpse is a good way to ensure he goes under, and precious few will be brave enough to take his place.Motorbike shops are magic places, like guitar shops.My early memories of oil soaked floors and days spent hanging around our dealerís store, are what spins the thread from which you will weave the tapestry that becomes your motorcycling life..If bottom feeding opportunists manage to force bike shops under..Iíll buy a boat.

I try to support local businesses, but when those local businesses charge 20% or more over the bigger retailer only 20 miles away and don't even have online inventory, I'll drive the 20 miles. Case in point- Friendly local auto parts store 6 miles away- Prices always highest, no online inventory, and their major asset, a former Ford dealership parts guy, retired. So now I check NAPA and O'Reilly stores online for price and inventory status and drive the 20 miles.
It is a changing world and retailers need to adapt to the changing times. This is true for every business. If they don't update their business model to stay competitive they fade away. All businesses won't survive by doing the same old thing that got them by in the past. I live 12 miles from the nearest store where I can purchase anything. But, I can order online and have items at my door within two days. I used to have to sell used items by putting ads in the paper or local shopping news. Now I can use forums, craigslist, ebay and reach an audience as wide I am willing to deal with. Some of my used parts have gone to Australia.
The question was if you found a bike for 1,000 less online would you buy it over a local dealership. Well since we didn't set the price for either bike how are we beating anybody up on price or being a bottom feeding opportunist. Dealerships aren't a magical place for me. They are simply a business that sell devaluing equity.
On the first point Iím suggesting that we spend the extra bit at the dealer for him to make a quid and stay afloat .On the second point about the magic...?Iím sorry for you.
It doesnít bother me it shouldnít other you. I donít rely on dealerships and thereís magic in that.
...... thereís magic in that.

My guess, if you want a new bike $1000 ain't gonna matter.If you're ridin' 20 year Guzzi and love that ride, you'll work on that sucker and keep it going even in you have to spend the night on the ground in Bristow Okla trying to find the electrical fault in the ignition switch.
Not me, Dusty. I'd shoot that sucker with my 357
