Good luck with that. How many bike sales alone would it take just to keep the AC running each month?

I'm guessing that their banking on the "life style" accesories and service. Of course I've never been to Vegas so what do I know. CDS anybody?

"The Harley-Davidson authorized service area features 30 service stations plus seven bays for collision work. An added element of the service area is the motorcycle dyno."

Hmmmm...don't like the sound of that...'specially the dyno.

See the limited edition T shirt you get for running your stock bike on the dyno will be a collectors item.

It, like the idea the Whitefish Bay School District came up with to pay for employee health benefits, probably seemed like a good idea at the time. But that was then and this is now.

As opposed to a DEAD Poker Tournament?

Poker Zombies milling-about the bikes........

Aces and Eights coming-up as Winners all day.......

"Loud Pipes Save Lives" Tees on half the Players........

Skull-Tattoos abound everywhere; Oh wait! - that'd be in the LIVE Tourney as well...........

With a wide-selection of Tees - "I got 61 RWHP on the Dyno at RedRock!"

If their sales are anything like the JAX store -

2.5 acres ain't enough room to park all the unsold bikes...

Fabulous timing.

This thing better have enough financing to get them through the next 24 months or it will be a 2.5 acre homeless shelter rather quickly.

This is just low-hanging fruit....

2.5 acres and "over" 100 new and used bikes?.....

"the showroom area is wall to wall with Motorclothes apparel and accessories"?...

The "Main Event" of a motorcycle shop grand opening is a f*ckin poker game?....


Gee sounds like the kinda' place I want to hang out....hope they have good Latte`s while I wait to pay some schmuck to screw up an oil change on my bike...
