Holdbacks and flooring assistance are two of the biggies. These are paid by the dealer when he buys the bike, but paid back to the dealer when it's sold. It works like a rebate. If I buy a copy of Turbo Tax and PAY $39, and then send in the $15 rebate form, I PAID $39 for the software, but it COST me $24. So, if I turn around and sell it for $1 over the invoice showing what I paid for it, $40, I just made $16. Simple as that.
Thanks, Thats good info. I worked at a dealer, and they never mentioned that. Even now with sponsorship, and selling bikes for them sometimes they never told me about that. Now I understand why they let me sell bikes to my friends for invoice. I thought it was just because I bought 5 bikes in the last yr there. Oh well, they are happy, I am happy. And mom just got a atv at invoice, so she's happy too:thumbsup:
