Got pricing Wednesday, however my concern is the economy. Right now I think I'm going to save that 15k just might be needed when and if everything shuts down.

I also strongly believe that Poo will close their doors soon halting production along with all the damn foreign parts not being manufactured because those businesses are shut down to.

May have to take the winter of 20-21 off.

Non essential is non essential. If the dealer is in one of those states they have to or face fines if they don’t.

We sell Boats. Own 2 dealerships in CT. Worcester Boat show was canceled last week. Greenwich show in April already canceled. Not good for us at all.
This sucks for all small businesses but its better than spreading it.
Trust me I get trying not to worry. But just wait till this is over before worrying about buying more toys. My 2 cents.
too slow, cfm and cropsprayer like this.

I'm buying parts for my sled and boat right now, getting carry out and tipping my local peeps well when I do. Have friends that own restaurants. Doing what a lowly person like me can do to support the small businesses right now. We all need to ride this out and help as much as we can. Staying positive is tough in this time, but what choice do we have? Negativity will be unhealthy for everyone. I may get a couple people bash me on this post, but I will take it as them being frustrated and stay as positive as I hope everyone can be. We live in the best country in the world and will get through this.

good news if your dealership sells motorcycles and or repairs them you are considered essential! the world will recover from this. recreation is a form of therapy for me anyway.
