Going to the 10th Anniversary Cincinnati V-Twin Expo

V-TWIN EXPOStill a place to see (the new custom parts) and be seen  (all the Big Cats of the industry), the 10th V-Twin Expo will open its doors in Cincinnati from tomorrow February 6th until the 8th.

As usual I will be there to report on how our motorcycle industry is doing in this fast changing economy. Being more interested by quality than quantity, I will try to orient you on those who are  present with true innovative products and solutions, and of course these companies will be the ones on which I will blog in priority.

Who are today the strongest and finest companies? What seminar topics will attract the largest crowds of dealers? Who Easyriders Magazine will declare the new “Industry Leaders” during its awards ceremony? What will be the buzz about during after show hours…and parties? I will work hard at bringing you the answers. The gods of Wi-Fi permitting, I will be live-blogging from inside  the Cincinnati Duke Energy Convention Center. TTLY (Talk To You Later) from snowy Cincinnati. V-Twin Expo.

    Hey everybody, don’t forget to stop by the Midwest booth and ask them why they sell below dealer to your customers.

    To all others, I hope you have a good show.

    In the Industry,

    Please tell me some factual transactions (no names needed) other than Jireh and I will be pleased to inquire for both of us since I know most the crew that will be at Cinci and would like to know more about your comments above myself since I am an OEM dealer with them.

    Fact is that they have no regard for their dealers as evidenced by their entire catalog at the retail store you mentioned. They will claim they are only a customer of theirs. If you believe that I have a 36 knuck to sell ya for $10.00.

    In The Industry,

    Stop being a bitch and talking shit about things you have no clue about. MidWest are great people and if you are so concerned with product you don’t even buy then become a “customer” and not a “dealer” and get it for cheaper?? don’t be completely stupid. I buy a lot of stuff from MidWest and I will say that they are awesome and the prices are amazing on everything I buy from them. I have looked online and have talked to people from MW and what you said about is a lie.

    In The Industry,

    What is your view on Drag Specialties dropping every dealer who doesnt spend at least 10k with them a year???? That is shitty if you ask me

    I’ve done business with Midwest for many , many years. We’ve had some ups and downs over the years. The downs were mostly the fault of customer reps that didn’t do their job. The Jereh situation is getting a lot of rants from a lot of people, but it’s not any more of a problem than E-bay. BikeBandit, or a dozen other online re-sellers. The world has changed in the last decade. Only thing I can say is deal with it, or fold up your tent and go home. Midwest screwed up last year by taking a price increase when most other vendors didn’t take one. As a result I haven’t done nearly as much business with them as I did in years past. You have to deal with the best product, best price vendor to make it in this industry. I’d love to do more business with them, hopefully they will align their prices with other vendors and we can do more business in coming years.
