Looking for a dealership near Lancaster PA that does test rides

Hi all,

I'm really interested in picking up a leftover '14 DL1000 ABS. But, I'd like to compare it to the 650 and to the Versys 1000. My local dealers here near Baltimore will not let you test ride. I'm kind of set on the DL 1000, but I won't know for sure til I try them.

Any dealers you all know of that will allow test rides in/around the Lancaster area?

Thanks,

Scribe308

Your best bet would be to find someone local that will let you ride their V2. I live in central NJ if you want to take a ride. I also have a 650 so we can take a ride together if you want. Or you can start calling the local dealers and seeing what they say.

That's really generous! If I don't find a dealer I might take you up on that.. I'll try some calls today to 4-6 dealers within an hours drive.
Hopefully someone does.

Thanks again.

Lancaster dealers

Scribe308,

Check the website for B&B Sales. They have (2) used Gen2 650's on the floor now. They handle KTM also. They will allow test drives with MC Lisc & Credit Card to cover damage

Keller Motorsports is north of Lancaster in Lititz, they have a used Vee 1000 low mileage K9, and a used Versys also-check website! All the 650's are new 2015 models (Doubtful any test drives there).
Call them about test drives.

I drove the Vee and Wee before my recent purchase. The Wee was cheaper(purchase and insurance) and did everything I needed in a MC. No regrets here.

Edit- If you come through York, PA there is Action Sports---contact them also.

Best if luck in your search.

I live in Baltimore and just picked up a 2015 dl650. I wasn't able to test ride in Baltimore so I ended up purchasing from Action Motor Sports in York, PA. The guys were great and no problem with the test ride.

No problem. Just send me a pm if you want to come by. I'm off of work every Thursday and Friday so as long as it's not raining or snowing, I'm ok with going for a ride and you can try both if you want.

All,

I did check around and action motor sports was the one I picked to go to. But, they've only got the khaki colored one. Don't like that color.

Hey as long as they let you test ride than you can go anywhere to make the purchase. If I were you and have the time I would go to Romney Cycles and trailer or ride a bike you buy from there. You really cant beat their prices.

Yes I've got a great quote from there, but after Maryland registration, taxes, and fees I'm at about $9475 OTD.

That's a Romney cycle of 8750 OTD. But without my state tax and tag, title, etc..

Scribe, I think it might be hard to find a better price than that until the spring.
