Excellent article and for me it sounds like a well designed and administered roadmap for success for both the young dealer and Flagship Powersports. I think it was Tony Robbins who said something like, "By helping others to grow and be successful will bring more growth and success back to you."
This program really sounds like a WIN-WIN situation or might I say a WIN-WIN-WIN. A win for the young new business men and women you help get started right. A win for you and your team with the joy and satisfaction of helping others, which helps yourself and both parties make money. And finally a win for the rider, the buyer, the community that now has place in town where you can go see, feel, and test ride that scooter, ATV, or other powersports product that was previously only available via far-off mail order companies where you'd have to purchase sight-unseen and hope you could service it yourself.
I know for me and my local area in Des Moines, Iowa the one lone dealer that sold powersports products (something other than Harley Davidson - we've got one or two of those) in Des Moines is just about gone. I would love it if we had a local scooter dealership / service center where I could enjoy real hands-on shopping for scooters, etc. A place where I could stop in and find a lot of the parts I need in stock. A place with a knowledgeable and (dare I say it) a caring staff?
EXCELLENT program that I hope and believe will bring success to all. The Best of Luck.
sillylittleboy, Thank you for the kind words! We have signed up two new Flagship dealers just in the last month... younger owners, eager to do great things in their communities! I actually have great news for you! We just signed up a new Bintelli dealer in Des Moines! We are just getting them started in the scooter program and one of our reps is actually there visiting them today! Here's their info (please spread the word so the community will support them - go stop in and welcome them to the family!):
TBK Wholesale 1611 Army Post Rd Des Moines, IA 50315 515-953-1166
They are starting off strong, here's a picture of their line up (Scroll left and right):

That IS awesome news. I know exactly where they're located and it's maybe 3 miles from where I live. I'll definitely be spreading the word and hopefully bringing them in some new business. I'll have to stop by their place tomorrow and say HEY!
Wow, I was going to mention something about my little town up north, but I didn't think you'd be expanding that far north. Silly Me, eh? (Thus the name...) In looking at the photo there and that long line-up of scooters I'd have to say, "Dang you move fast."
Do they have anything 200cc or bigger? I'm about ready to get me a second scoot and would like at least a 200cc.
Thanks for all you're doing. It'll be nice having some folks here locally.
