F.X. Caprara Harley-Davidson also sells other brands in our dealership - Arctic Cat, BRP - Can Am, Ski-Doo, Sea-Doo, and Honda motorcycles, ATVs and power equipement. So sometimes I'll hear about a customer's near accident, going into the reason they gave up riding a motorcycle. I won't forget the last customer I talked with (but he won't be the last) who told me that he gave up riding because of his job:
- Him: "I just couldn't ride anymore after seeing what I see doing my job."
- Me: "What do you do? EMS??"
- Him: "I'm a State Trooper." (who was looking to buy a new jacket to wear while riding his snowmobile)
- Me: "Wow - really??"
- Him: "Yeah, the risk of what could go wrong on a motorcycle is just too much."
- Me: "But you ride a snowmobile now, and I know I just heard of a snowmobile accident over the weekend where the rider had to be airlifted out!!"
