Yep your power to protest and not buy from these California dealers will make a mark on their future sales of motorcycles. We should make a post of all the dealers in Calif or any other state and who was your sales person and state the price you were quoted good or bad. That way future buys of motorcycles can avoid these dealers and it will send a strong voice to the Honda MC company that if they want to sell their products they better wise up and give the customer fair market price or else we are taking our money to another dealer or state to get our GROM or other brand/model motorcycle.
yep the power of your money and your buying decision can make or break a company, manufacturer, store, dealer "Stealership"
The dealers should know that not only you are buying the GROM but you are also buying the riding gear, maintenance products, etc from that dealer.
That is why when I leave a dealership that I bought a motorcycle/car/truck I drive about a mile away from the dealership and the first thing I remove is the dealers lic plate holder that has the name of their dealership because I do not advertise for them for FREE.
