Hale's

Hey bought my 05 Fatboy at Hale's. Very nice to work with and gave me the best deal in NE Ohio. It's about 65 miles one way to their shop from my house and well worth the drive.

I used Hale's several times over the past few years for parts and they were great. The parts person (Jenny) really knew what she was doing and made purchasing from Hale's over the phone real easy. Plus the %20 off parts was great.

HOWEVER,,,,Jenny had since left Hale's and went to another HD dealership. Now that she had left, Hale's has screwed up my orders several times and I ended up canceling my last order. They even sent me a second leather jacket one time after I already received the first ones a few weeks earlier.

I use Zanotti HD now. Their online website and phone orders are easy. Most importantly, they are %20 off.

If you want info on dealers for bikes, use this http://www.stealer-dealer.com/sd.htm

Jenny works for Benjy's HD in W VA. Same 20% off deal, same great service.

I know Jenny is very appreciative of people who bring their business to Benjy's in order to get her knowledgeable help.

I haven't used Hales to purchase a bike. I've used ben Breece HD in Ottawa, Ohio. they always sell at msrp and have free freight and set up. sometimes in the winter they have some deals. not an answer to your question, but an option.

good luck and ride safe, when weather permits.

I've used Hale's several times before and after Jenny quit. No problems with any orders to date.

My girlfriend bought her first bike from them last year (a 2004 883 Sportster Custom). She bought it when the 2005s were coming in and got about $700 off (not bad for a Sportster). Overall, she is very happy with them and in my opinion, they are one of the best dealers around (price wise and service wise). For a year after my girlfriend bought her bike, she received coupons for every holiday ($10 off coupons) and received several gifts (i.e. a beer cooler) for her birthday and anniversary. She also received a free rental coupon.

A friend of mine bought two bikes from Hales and they were the only dealer (that he had talked to) to give a discount ($1500 off a Fatboy and Sportster). No other dealers were willing to negotiate.

FYI - I noticed last year they were selling the Screamin Eagle Fatboy for $1,000 less than all the other dealers. At one point, I think they were selling it for $2,000 less than all the other dealers.

I just ordered a service catalog online and received it the next day...

While I live in Cleveland, I plan on purchasing any future bikes/parts from Hales.

Yes, I have dealt with Jenny when she was at Hales HD in Ohio.
Didn't know she was at Benjy's in WVA. I will call her, she definately
is the greatest in people skills.
Zanottis is near Butler Pa from what I gather and near New Castle PA
right on.. I go by there on 224 all the time. didn't know about 20%.
Whats the deal on MSRP at Zanottis??
