NYC and the "TT AMERICA" poster.
- Hello All,
I went to the NYC show on Friday and I handed out the "TT" poster
to Rob from Sport Touring Accessories and the Triumph Rep. for the
North East Region Doug Powers. Both of these gentlemen were very
positive about the event and Doug said it is a great thing to see a
sort of grass roots type of gathering and that he hopes to see more of
this type of gatherings along with the RAT Events. The overall show
was much better than last year and the area restaurants were also a
great treat. It seems as if the industry is reinvesting in its self as
the manufactures are working on new items and improving on already
established product lines. As an example DOWCO bike covers is in the
middle of revamping there products with new features and materials,
Gerbing has made there products strictly a premium product line by
requiring that their products be sold through exclusive dealers or
direct. This means that the dealers that handle their products have to
be part of a Buy-In Program, in simple terms the retailer must lay out
a lot of cash one time for a lot of product and in turn the company
will support them in any way possible to make the product line be
profitable. I could go on but why, the show was great and the food was
great with a bunch of great friends to be with!
PS: The Trophy still rules as I see it!
