    No doubt this would be Yamaha Australia's wet dream, but it sounds like a fast ticket to bankruptcy to me. Car dealership mentality won't work for bikes...
    ...And less than 18 months later, they're closing down.

      There's none of that up here in Newcastle. Graeme Boyd MC and Chris Watson MC both sell Yamaha along side other brand bikes, parts and anything MC related.

      Might be a good opportunity for you to open a bike shop

        Can't afford the franchise buy-in, and it does appear to be a challenging business model.

          So it seems...less than 6 weeks away.

          Oh well, was there long enough to get my WR. Yamaha's generous (lol ) 3 month warranty is up now & had no issues anyway.

          Can get anyone I like to do any service or mechanical work that's out of my league but sure as hell won't be CMC if they get the franchise back.
