are you talking about gear selection or cycle selection? but
wouldn't most dealerships try to charge you an arm and a leg to make some profit of a potential customer, just my thought. I have gone to Motorcycles Unlimited and they have various models and a extra good reputation within the community

It is like a barbers holiday. Generally they go ride on Sunday and Monday. They need days off, too. Most dealerships are going to be strait blue book value. If you want good deals private sellers are the best way to go IMO.
Craigslist. Go insptect it and check it over. Ebay is kind of a shoot. Maybe good, maybe screwed.

As I understand it from those who have been in the biz for a long time, there is an agreement between the motorcycle shops in Houston to be closed on Monday for a day off and fair competition.

You're not going to find any particular dealership that is "better than" one or the other for pricing. It' and miss. The reason you go to a dealership is because they have good customer service and that you leave with your purchase feeling like you got the best deal.

Some folks are going to pay more, some are going to pay less. Most of the time, you're gonna pay list or close to it with bikes.

I'd hit up some of the Team Mancuso Powersports stores- they've got lots of brands all over Houston
