    Thanks Roll On! I'm going down the main list and correcting/adding/removing, etc. I'll have to bug @NickJ later about granting me edit permission on the main list again once I have all my ducks in a row.

    I believe the Indian dealer of Los Angeles is gone or at least they don't deal in Indians.

    If it is Iam not aware of it. This place is really a rental agency. Located near Los Angeles airport you flyin and rent a Harley or previously an Indian. They did have Indian sales/repairs but no more. Now it’s Harley’s only. They do a big over seas fly in business.
    Wife and I were riding Hwy 2 one day and came upon a couple from Germany that crashed on one of their Roadmasters. Helicopter to the hospital for her and he followed us down the mountain to meet her. Had to learn to use a phone app to communicate between them, police, and hospital staff. Unusual
    ride that day.

    Thanks Zipperhead for your time and effort in making the dealer information available. I'm planning a trip to the Sturgis Rally this year. I'm leaving from eastern Ontario Canada and this info might come in handy.

    I took pity on him and granted his wish. I had to add in the Aussies too, just to be fair.

    Two dealers, one very well known in mid - USA, told me awhile back that the owners of this store wanted another franchise. It was either very close or in a lucrative market. They did not want to pay the 500K franchise fee plus the yaddy - yaddy that goes with it ( building/parts/ect ) and tried to play 'lets make a deal' with Polaris which everyone by now should know that does not happen. They kept it up, kept it up, and brought up Polaris's unwillingness to 'work with dealers' at a dealer meeting which went over like like you know what. Thus the yanking of the franchise.

    Personally I feel that if your customer satisfaction scores and warranty billing is right up there and you are moving iron, you should get a break on a new store. You see this with other manufacturers. But not Polaris who gladly took Victory franchise fees knowing they were closing shop. This seems to be a very hardcore bunch in MN and $$$ is what talks. What this does is eliminate multi stores from a single owner or corporation. Ride Now has very deep pockets and can do this on a small scale but when I look at some other manufacturers stores that have one dealer owning 4 or 5 stores.............geez............

    I was there and doin' it, so I just did a little more of it. Since Indian improved their dealer locator on the website it's a lot easier.

    Any other regional requests?

    Sadly, Center Valley Motorsports, a.k.a Indian Motorcycles of Allentown has closed. It was a good dealership to work with but one of the owners ran into some financial difficulties which led to its demise.
