Is there a rhyme or reason for this? Or just a convention that most dealers adopted?

5 day work week.
Most dealership employees are full time so it's difficult to have coverage 6 days a week.
Most studies have shown that long term work without days off in between actually erodes productivity.
Even though we're a smaller operation my guys typically get 2 days off a week.

I remember rides being on Sunday, and resting monday. Industry standard. And nope Independence still answers the phone "Independence Harley and Buell". Plus they have a Buell sign out front.

Such a great concept. Restaurants, however, are open (typically) for lunch and dinner, 7 days a week.

Almost all car dealerships open 6 days a week. So are a lot of retail outlets, both consumer and even some industrial.

Not passing judgement on the work hours for bike dealers. I'm fine with it, for whatever reason. Just curious about why Monday was chosen. The race thing makes sense.
