Great people to deal with, they advertise 5,699.00 + tax but they charged me 5,899, I did'nt bitch cause I got 2 free helmets, one of them a Pred helmet.
Sent my bud thier way and they quoted him 5.699 too but somehow total with tax was 6,301.00 , Awful high sales tax ???

I have to wonder about this dealership. This is the dealer that pushed to get SB-117 submitted, which would screw every Nevada resident by requiring registration of their ATVs. All they wanted to do was "level" the playing field, as they put it, so that people couldn't buy from out of state without having to pay Nevada sales tax. To me, it says they want bigger government, which is the LAST thing we need. If they're worried about losing sales, they should be more competitive with pricing and service. I could go out of state if I wanted, but I have a fantastic dealer here in Reno that I would rather do business with instead of trying to save a couple hundred bucks.

I figured out the extra $ 200 was freight & setup so I feel good about the deal , Reno Cycle quoted my buddy the same " special" price.
I have read about SB-117 on other sites and how Preferred Motors was a buisness to steer clear of but I bought 2 new bikes from them because I was treated well and they are close to the house.
I wanted to know what Preferred Motors would gain with SB-117 so I went by last Saturday and talked to the owner Neal for quite a long time.
I left feeling that his genuine concerns are there are too many stolen off road vehicles in Nevada and registration would maybe somehow cut down the number.
Also being a buissness person he realizes that the State of Nevada could use the extra revenue.
I'm sure he might make a few more sales if people were forced to register ATVs but somehow I don't think he's hurting for customers, while I was talking to him he was selling a ranch quad.
I don't know how many times I've seen a flyer at Sand Mountain or an ad in a Nevada newspaper offering a reward for a stolen ATV or worse yet a trailer full of ATVs and knowing they'll never see them again, hope it doesn't happen to me.

Gee maybe I oughta post publically some of the private emails I've received from Neal in response to my posting about how he was behind SB117. I don't give a rat's ass what he says about how he thinks registration will cut down on thefts -- it won't and he flat out knows it. I've seen all of the various documentation on SB117 and I even attended the committee meeting on it in Carson City, and the bottom line is he felt he was losing business to out of state dealers.

I'm completely and totally anti-government; not to the point of anarchy, but to the point that they don't need anymore tax revenue. It's time that government CUT BACK instead of finding new ways to rape the public. The simple fact that Preferred Motors would back a bill that would cause government to grow, for its own benefit, is UNAMERICAN at best. I've been trying to rally people to BOYCOTT the place because of the fact that they were behind SB117. I've also been firing off letters to Polaris to try to get their franchise revoked. The place doesn't deserve to be in business.
