It was actually more that they required 2 years ago. My dream was to always own my own dealership. I contacted Polaris to get a dealership in my area and had the required criteria. Filled out all the papers and mailed it in. They never bothered to contact me back! I figured WTF & moved on to bigger and better things.

I bet they are sorry now since they lost a large dealer in our area because of finance fraud.

The old saying "It takes money to make money". How true!

I don't know? I think if it were me I would make it combined with an Outdoor store, since that is what I like! I have long said to friends, family and neighbors in my area if only BASS PRO carried the Polaris ATV line Vs. Arctic Cat (no bash just preference) then it would be impossible to pull me away from there (lol..its hard now!).

Yeah, Cabelas has Kawasaki, and BassPro has Arctic Cat. My local dealer has everything Yamaha, Arctic Cat and Ski-Doo Sleds. The dealer I use about 20 miles away has everything Polaris, Can-Am quads, Kawasaki quads, Suzuki quads and bikes. I wouldn't mind having the cash to own one like he has.
What can be said of this mystery we're in? I have only one answer to give,
If Jesus didn't die to be the Savior of my soul, truly, I do not want to live.
For what would living be without a meaning and a hope?
Precious little more than just some cruel cosmic joke.
It's like being all dressed up and there was never even anywhere to go...
