2021 CanAm Spyder RT
Today I stopped at a nearby dealership just to see what they were showing. This is an almost all Japanese brands type place that carries Yamaha, Kawasaki and Suzuki. I told the manager that I had stopped by to look at a Niken, just to see what this two-front wheel bike looked like in person, and he told me that they didn't have one. He added that they would only get one if a customer special ordered it. I said it was less likely that anyone would put a deposit down on a bike that they had never seen, or sat on, let alone had a chance to ride it. He shrugged and said he didn't really think it would sell anyway so why should he bother getting one? Then I went to look at the other bikes on the showroom floor, but could barely get to any of them because they were packed in so tightly, I guess to take up as little space as possible so that the ATV's and snowmobiles could be displayed. I wanted to sit on one bike that literally I could not get to without moving four or five other bikes so I decided to just not bother. During the time I was there no one approached me to ask what I might be interested in, no one asked my name or tried to strike up a bike related conversation to try to make me feel like this was a place I would want to do business at. Made me wonder how some of these places stay in business.
