to the future...

Nice place, but falls a bit short of George White. Shame they didn't move into their old showrooms, which was a much nicer place to be. However, good to have Kawasaki back in Swindon. Now I just need to convince my wife to let me get a nice new Z1000!!!

How many sales though?

That's really all that matters.  They're not goign to survive selling coffee and cakes - ask George White.

I do wish them well, but I just can't see where the money is going to come from.

All been done before

Coburn and Hughes, Motorcycle City, Carnells, Riossi, Bikes UK and George White - all mega-dealer groups that eventually crashed and burned. I'd never buy from one of these companies because they never, ever offer the level of after care that smaller dealers offer. On top of that, if I go to buy a bike, I don't want to be on the end of some hard-sell of finance and insurance products that are of dubious value to me, but very profitable to the dealer!

I have to say I've recently bought a GSXR 750 from Blade honda in Reading. No hard finance sale, gave me a good deal and the service was second to none. If these are anything like the Reading site I'd highly reccomend buying from them.

I've never bought a bike from Blade so I can't comment on them specifically, but I'm confident that for every good experience like yours, there will be at least as many bad experiences. I have bought from and worked for both big and small dealers, and I know who would get my money nowadays. For me, when it comes to bike shops, small is beautiful.
