Salesman say the darnedest things!

I was poking around the local dealer this past week and saw a guy give a RGC a good look over...

Then I overheard the salesman tell him that he rarely ever turns the stereo on while riding...and that they are gimmicks for most people.

Having just dropped over a grand on my stereo system I almost jumped out of my skin.... but I bit my tongue and my wife and I just laughed....

I understand its not for everyone, but .... I like music and I like my ride so its a perfect match for me!!

Probably just "prepping" him for when he initially hears the stock system. Kinda slick...just turn yours on next to the dude and plant your own seed. Salesman will have to tap dance lol

That's funny! The first thing I do when I get ready to ride is figure out what I'm going to listen to. I don't enjoy riding my other bikes as much, with no tunes they seem boring now.

As a person who makes their living in sales ( not motorcycles or cars ) if you can't impress them with your brilliance dazzle them with bullshit

I've been in my 11 RGU for two seasons and can't ride without. Coming from a Heritage Softail without tunes except for the done roar of the Rush side exhaust. well you all understand the headache.

He probably thought it sounded better than "this HK stereo is a POS even though HD has continued to put them in bikes for 7 years, and odds are good that it will go out with no warning. Hopefully it will still be under warranty. If I were you I'd take it out immediately and put something decent in its place and see if you can get some sucker to buy it on the internet."

Thats funny! The only reason I traded in my Road King was because it didn't have a radio
