I think your dealer is a bit off base


Wouldn't be the first or last time :busted:

Sounds like PAPE is low on the delivery list, which would make sense, since they are the only one for about 50-65 miles, tucked up at the top of the Peninsula. I guess it reaffirms the "limited production" theory.

All Yamaha dealers have to be or at least use to have to be 100 miles apart as the crow flies.

Yeah, I think Honda is the only one still sticking to the distance dealership rule still...
Most shops (in the SoCal area anyway) will have a few bikes coming in a few days to a few weeks...
Tomorrows unveiling date is at select locations and almost all of them are invite only...Not at the dealerships...
I hear there's some surprises going on at Glen Helen...

There are at least 5 in the greater San Diego alone, and at least 3 more in the county, which is 60 x 60 miles. Then there's Orange and LA counties.

I don't know where you heard that, but it ain't so.

15 miles is the new rule.
Older dealerships that are closer than that are pretty much grandfathered in.

They are doing the introduction for the southern california dealers at Glen Helen. I guess that they are limiting it to one person from each dealer.

Heard it from a guy I know that owns a Yamaha dealer a few years ago. Maybe it has changed? I know a dealer can be closer if it is the same owner(s). Not that big of deal to me was just throwin it out there about the post above mine is all.

I did hear today that James Stewart was going to So Cali to do something big tomorrow! I am assuming it is the unveiling of the 2010 YZ450f.

Ask yourself if you really think the same dealership density rules would apply in SoCal as in North Dakota. Rules like that are based on population density.

Ya I am not arguin about it there Gray:) and I don't know anything about North Dakota but I see your point about SoCal.

I do know that in Spokane Washington, when the dealership I was working at burned down.
They found a location 7 blocks west of their previous location.
When the other local dealership heard about the new location they fought the move stating the dealership was to close.
And kept the dealership move from from happening.
When the second location was located outside the 15 mile limit, the move went through.
The new location fit nicely between the dealership located in western Spokane and the dealership In couer d'alene Idaho.

No two of the 5 greater San Diego area dealers are 15 miles apart. Some are fewer than 5 miles apart.

In double checking, there are a minimum of 6 more dealerships in the county.

For perspective, there are 6.5 million people in Washington. There are 3 million in San Diego County alone, and 1.2 in the City itself. On top of that, we don't have a serious winter here (in fact, it's the best time of year to ride), so sales don't really let up seasonally.
