    Just found out that Jim Boltz sold his harley dealership on Lynnwood WA.
    And was wondering if any one has any info on the new owner?
    Guess the new guy has a few dealerships around the country and is buying up more.

    I guess I just find it bad that the dealers only concern is to make the allmighty buck and disspose of the customer after doing so.
    Then they have'nt a clue why there bussines when down the drain.

    So some more info on hd of Seattle, the purchaser is Ed Lemco, lives in the virgin Islands owns about 6 stealerships, and if you goggle him looks like he is going to make the place even worse, if that’s possible.
    This guy is very money hungry so do not expect any better customer service.
    Same goes for his brother Steve Lemco.
    Bad news, I met the guy.

    Our closest dealership, Shumate Harley Davidson went out of business last summer. He had 3 dealerships in Kennewick WA, Spokane WA and Lewiston ID. He had a bad reputation among the loyal Harley crowd.

    A local business man with plenty of business experience and dollars is looking to open up the Kennewick location. That's the main dealership among the three. It's a gorgeous facility and the market is a good sized one. We've got our fingers crossed.

    Jason, I to am a loyal fan of G'ville Harley. All you riders in the north Fl area, if you have been reading the post about dealer closings, you need to support the dealers that support you.

    Got an oil change in Kennewick last June while passing through. Beautiful dealership, not very good service. Hope the new guy does you better.
