Picked up the new Strom today.
Aurora was as advertised, friendly, but not budging on MSRP. Had a good interaction with their parts counter, but ended up not buying any farkles.
Everett Powersports, the rep I spoke with wasn't very familiar with the beakstrom but was enthusiastic and a fan of the glee. More willing to deal, minimum of the stereotypical dealership theater. Ultimately wound up not going with them.
Adventure Motorsports in Monroe, however, amaziballs in every respect. Parts, Sales, Finance were all friendly stand up human beings, made eye contact, shook hands, remembered my name(strangely a rare feat these days in my experience). I wound up getting some farkles with the 0% financing, and they were willing to work with me to track down some altrider parts that weren't in their normal catalog.
I plan on riding the heck out of my new bike, but will definitely recommend them to anyone who asks, and will go back if I end up needing a second ride.
