    Default Local Harley Bankrupt?

    Any body here the news? Harley here in town has filed for bankruptcy. I always thought they had too many bikes on the floor. Bad time for bike sales but makes for good prices for those with money.

    That sucks, are they reorganizing or closing their doors?

    The owner owns RGV HD and RRHD, This one dosnt make nearly as much sales as the one in San B. So its probably to cut some of his loss and keep the money where the income is comeing in better.

    I agree with Zachary, you can't have too many buildings where we can go and admire cool bikes. Being a newbie I wouldn't want to stir up trouble, so I'll just state my experience.

    In the market for a new bike a little over a year ago, maybe 14 months ago. 09s were clearing out and I thought It would be a good time to buy. McAllen/Mission store tells me they are charging 105% of MSRP +++. San antonio offered a discount, but I ended up staying home and bought a Suzuki.

    If HD had been willing to deal (first half of dealership) things may have been different. I was fond of the Blue & White color scheme they had going in 09.

    Thats actually most complaints about this particular Hd, The RRHD actually sells them cheaper then the RGVHD.

    Wish I'd a known that little piece of information. I think I was under the impression that they were owned by the same person...assumption...same business plan. Someone else noted earlier that RRHD sold more bikes. Hmmm.

    they pissed off too many people we got alot of customers because of the people that were upset with them from what I hear the owner of F&T will probably buy back the franchise and I'm sure he'll build the dealership back up...well at least thats what people have said

    They are owned by the same person. Just different sales tactics at both locations.
