I do see what you mean about Buell needing more dealers for Canada than it would in Cali though.
Good point. A lot of Canadian's are in the cities, and there aren't many big cities in Canada. it would be easy for them to target most of the people they can.

HAGEY that is most likely what is going to happen

To distribute to all of the population in California probably requires a handfull.
Thats the unfortunate thing about Canada, everything and everyone is more spreaded out so at times they have to either set up more or set up a few central locations and hope people come to them.

2wheelin At least when it comes to sales in winter, canadians wont give up, i know even in winter canadians are still buying brand new bikes.

Hindsight Well, it depends on if you are saying a market's size is based on its population, or its population density. Canada may not have high population density but it still has a substantial population. Whether they are in California or spread across Canada, 30-something million people is 30-something million people.

that means absolutely nothing. thats 30 million people spread out in the worlds second largest land mass, where california is the size of a candy bar. 300 million vs 30 million, whats small to you?

of course california is a big market its the same size as all of canada

HAGEY Good to hear. Small market for motorcycles in Canada. Not going to sell very many models.
